Patrick Mutombo Rumors

Wainright may have been too well-liked at summer league. Patrick Mutombo, who coached the Vegas team and will coach Raptors 905 this season, jokingly engaged in some subterfuge to try to snag Wainright for the 905 instead of the Raptors. “I love him,” Mutombo said. “I told Masai and Bobby, I was messing with them, I said, ‘I don’t think he’s good enough for the Raptors.’ Bobby chewed me out. He said, ‘Patrick, we’re not doing that.’ Credit to our front office, they bring in good people. Talented basketball player, a joy to coach, and then he’s just got a toughness that I have a soft spot for. He’s been great. He’s a great force with us.”
