Latest On Luc Mbah a Moute

The Kings still hold some level of interest in signing Luc Mbah a Moute, league sources have told James Ham of (Twitter link). The forward had previously agreed to a one-year, $1.55MM deal with Sacramento, but it was voided when Mbah a Moute failed his physical. The forward has an undisclosed shoulder issue according to team executive Vlade Divac, which is what caused Mbah a Moute to fail that exam, Rui Thomas of tweets.

While the Kings may indeed still have interest, there may not be a roster spot for the 28-year-old. Sacramento’s current roster count sits at 15, including 11 fully guaranteed deals. While teams can carry up to 20 players until opening night, franchises are required to pare down that number to 15 for the regular season. With the Kings officially signing Quincy Acy today, the addition of Mbah a Moute could be considered redundant since both players man the same position. The 2008 second-rounder out of UCLA has also expressed interest in returning to Philadelphia.

Mbah a Moute made 67 appearances for the Sixers last season, including 61 as a starter. He averaged 9.9 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 1.0 assist to go along with a slash line of .395/.307/.589. His career numbers through seven NBA seasons, which include stints with the Kings and Bucks, are 6.8 PPG, 4.9 RPG, and 1.0 APG.

    dude not a scorer, but if kings didnt get him i wouldnt mind him on my lakers. im not a big fan of young after last season. so i wouldnt mind trading young for whatever and getting someone who plays defense. a team with upshaw,brown,bass hibbert and a guy like LUC MBAH A MOUTE would add at lot more defense to the lakers then they had last season.

      A lot would depend on whether they saw Mbah a Moute as a four or a three, and whether they want to use Kobe more at small forward than at shooting guard this year, but yeah, he might fit there, if healthy.
