UPDATE (12:48 PM): Biyombo's contract is worth $72 million, according to The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski:

Free agent center Bismack Biyombo has signed a 4-year deal with the Orlando Magic, according to the AP:

Biyombo averaged 5 points, 8 rebounds, and 1.6 blocks for the Toronto Raptors last season, but shined in place of the injured Jonas Valanciunas during the NBA playoffs. He set the Raptors' single-game franchise rebounding record with 26 in Game 3 against the Cleveland Cavaliers, and averaged 6 points, 10 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks for the series.

According to ESPN's Marc Stein, Biyombo's contract is likely to approach $70 million over four years. There is some speculation that Biyombo's signing may give the Magic incentive to trade center Nikola Vucevic.
