Those closest to Mbah a Moute have repeatedly stressed that he’s had a great recovery and that there are no lingering issues. Houston maintained “extreme interest” in him over the past few months, according to one team source, and had conversations with him over the summer about a possible return to the team. There was still some doubt internally about the health, but there was more than enough comfort in bringing him to training camp.
Free agent forward Luc Mbah a Moute has agreed to a one-year, $4.3 million deal with the Los Angeles Clippers, league sources told ESPN. The Clippers are paying Mbah a Moute the balance of their mid-level exception, bringing him back to the franchise after a season away with the Houston Rockets.

Mbah a Moute, however, remains a free agent. “Of course, I want to be here, yeah,” Mbah a Moute said. “I think we had a great year last year. I had a good year. The team did great, a game away from the Finals. Hopefully, we’ll bring everybody back. I know Trevor (Ariza) left. But to bring everybody else back and have the same team and try to go at it again, (that) is what I’m hoping to do. We’ll see what happens.”

After Thursday’s African art exhibit — attended by Rockets president Tad Brown, vice president Gersson Rosas, general counsel Rafael Stone and scout Brent Johnson — Mbah a Moute will host Friday’s Taste of Africa Gala before Saturday’s charity soccer game pitting Team Mbah a Moute vs. Team Clint Capela at the Rice University Soccer Field. “I always wanted to do something like this since I got in the NBA,” said Mbah a Moute, a native of Cameroon. “Doing it here is great. I really feel home here in Houston.”
The Rockets need Tucker and Mbah a Moute in this series because of their defense. Mbah a Moute was especially effective on that end in the regular season against the Warriors, who scored only 97.2 points per 100 possessions in 56 minutes when he was on the floor. This is the dream scenario Morey obsessed over: Harden and Paul orchestrating one of the best offenses of all time, young center Clint Capela emerging as a legitimate third star, Tucker and Mbah a Moute along with Ariza keying a drastically improved defense designed to compete against the Warriors. “Obviously, bringing Chris here and Tuck and Luc, we had a vision,” Harden said. “In order to get where we want to go, we needed the right pieces. That’s what they’re here for. Everybody has a role to fill. We go out there and compete at a high level every night on both ends of the floor, and we have to live with the results. But I know if we give the effort that we know we can, it’s pretty tough to beat us.”

Mbah a Moute, who is scheduled to be re-examined in a week, underwent an MRI on Thursday, a day after he braced himself on a fall after a dunk. He said he never dislocated the shoulder before and was told he is not likely to be more susceptible to similar shoulder problems. “It was nothing major so the risk is very, very, very low from what I heard,” Mbah a Moute said. “It’s just a matter of getting the pain out, getting the range of movement and everything back to normal. “It’s getting better. It’s hard for me to tell right now. I’m taking it day-by-day, doing my treatment, staying on top of things and seeing how it goes. I’m hopeful. They said a couple weeks.”
The Rockets signed Mbah a Moute after he opted out of a contract that would have paid him $2.3 million, slightly more than the $2.117 million he will earn this season as the 10th-highest-paid Rocket. “Hey look, we got us a steal,” D’Antoni said. “We got him at the minimum. That’s ridiculous. He’s not a good player, he’s a great player. What he does for the team – runs the floor, he can handle, he can shoot, he can pass, he’s smart, good guy, locker room guy.”
The Cameroonian Basketball Federation (FECABASKET) on Sunday announced a 30-player list for the FIBA AfroBasket 2017 Qualifiers and the Final Round. While head coach Lazare Adingono remains in charge of the team, a number of new faces are set – if available – to make their international debut with the Cameroonians. Among the newcomers, Joel Embiid and Pascal Siakam – a pair currently making waves in the NBA – headline the provisional list. They will be joined by Los Angeles Clippers forward Luc Mbah a Moute, who might play his last FIBA AfroBasket. According to the FECABASKET, the provisional list gives them a chance of choosing players for the qualifiers and for the Final Round in August (19-30) in Brazzaville, Republic of Congo.
In the summer of 2015, Mbah a Moute re-signed with the Kings, but his contract was voided because of a failed physical. He filed a grievance against the team, and the matter was settled. His departure from the Kings led to his signing by the Clippers and a return to Southern California, where he played at UCLA. “It’s been good,” he said of his Clippers stint. “Defend, cut to the basket, make open shots. This team has so many weapons offensively, I try to contribute as much as I can to make sure I’m a threat out there, stretch the floor, make plays and just go out there and do my job.”
Embiid was born in Yaoundé, Cameroon on March 16, 1994. He originally had dreams of being a professional volleyball player, but started playing basketball at age 15 with a close eye on mimicking Hall of Famer center Hakeem Olajuwon of Nigeria. Embiid was discovered at age 16 at a basketball camp hosted by current Los Angeles Clippers forward and Yaoundé native, Luc Mbah a Moute. With Mbah a Moute later serving as a mentor, Embiid moved to the United States at age 16 to play high school basketball. As a senior at The Rock School, a Christian academy in Gainesville, Florida, the five-star recruit led the school to a state championship and signed with University of Kansas.
