The Phoenix Suns are planning to sign veteran center Bismack Biyombo to a 10-Day hardship contract. Phoenix is currently without both Deandre Ayton and JaVale McGee due to the health and safety protocols.

The absence of both Ayton and McGee leaves Phoenix with Jalen Smith as the only true big on their roster. On Friday afternoon, Phoenix patched together small lineups in a blowout loss at the Boston Celtics.

Biyombo has yet to play this season. He spent the 2020-21 campaign with the Charlotte Hornets. Last season, Biyombo played in 66 games (36 starts) and averaged 5.0 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game.
