Luc Mbah a Moute scored a season-high 14 points on perfect 6-of-6 shooting during Sunday's OT win vs. the Pelicans, adding five rebounds without any turnovers in 22 minutes.

Doc Rivers continually praises Mbah a Moute for his veteran composure and ability to guard any position on the court. That's all well and good, but it doesn't give him a shred of fantasy appeal -- this is the first time he's cracked double-figures all season and he's averaging a mere 2.2 rebounds, 0.2 assists, 0.4 steals and 0.3 blocks.

Doc Rivers praised Luc Mbah a Moute's ability to defend all five positions.

"He literally can guard all five positions," Rivers said. "There's not a lot of guys in the league [that can do that]." More valuable to the Clippers than he is on fantasy rosters, Mbah a Moute can be ignored in all formats.
Jan 4 - 1:13 PM

Luc Mbah a Moute is likely to stick with the Clippers for the rest of the season.

After Mbah a Moute made his ninth consecutive start on Monday, head coach Doc Rivers said his roster spot is likely safe. "I would say, yeah, that's safe," Rivers said when asked about Mbah a Moute and his non-guaranteed contract staying with the team. Though Mbah a Moute is earning starts, he's not putting up enough counting stats to be worth a roster spot in standard fantasy leagues.

Luc Mbah a Moute had one turnover, one personal foul and two missed shots in another start for L.A. on Saturday.

That's the extent of his statistical contribution. Doc Rivers started him for a defensive presence but the SF position is still in flux, and Wes Johnson (21 points) made a strong case to get back in the starting five tonight. Either way, Mbah a Moute is a non-entity in fantasy leagues.

Luc Mbah a Moute drew another start on Monday vs. the Blazers and scored four points with five boards and one assist in 24 minutes.

He attempted just three shots on the night and his role is basically just to defend. He doesn't have much upside and it's not a lock that he will continue to start, so he's a very shaky option even in deep leagues.

Luc Mbah a Moute started at SF vs. the Wolves and posted seven points, two 3-pointers, three rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 23 minutes.

Mbah a Moute hasn't cracked top-200 fantasy value since the 2010-11 season and he offers no upside as part of a timeshare with Paul Pierce, Lance Stephenson and Wes Johnson. Deep league owners should give him a look while he's starting, but the vast majority should ignore him.

Luc Mbah a Moute will start in place of Wes Johnson for Sunday's game vs. the Wolves.

The Clippers can't seem to get consistent production out of guys like Johnson, Paul Pierce and Lance Stephenson, so now it's Mbah a Moute's turn. The veteran is averaging less than five minutes per game this season and is more of a defensive specialist, so there's no need to add him in any format.

Doc Rivers likes what veteran Luc Mbah a Moute brings to the team.

That's why he earned the final roster spot over veteran big man Chuck Hayes. "I just think he can defend and he’s one of those guys who can be a great team defender," Rivers said. He won't have any kind of sustainable fantasy value.

Luc Mbah a Moute had a mouth injury on Friday night.

He lost a tooth and will be headed to the dentist. Mbah a Moute's mouth caught Joffrey Lauvergne's head, which caused some bleeding to the Frenchman. Mbah a Moute played most of his minutes next to Josh Smith, scoring four points with three boards and one block. He won't be a factor in most leagues

The Clippers will sign Luc Mbah a Moute to a training camp deal.

The Clippers have some serious depth at the forward spots as far as their rotation goes and this is likely more of an emergency depth situation. The 76ers did give LMAM some minutes and he still couldn't do much.

The Kings contend that their doctors found an injury for Luc Mbah a Moute that caused them to void his deal.

The NBPA filed a grievance against the Kings after the team voided his one-year deal. Mbah a Moute played in today's NBA Africa game and looked healthy as a starter. The Kings have been in the news a lot this offseason, so their fans are looking forward to the start of the season as much as any fan base.

The NBPA is filing a grievance against the Sacramento Kings over the voiding of Luc Mbah a Moute's contract.

Mbah a Moute had initially agreed to a one-year deal with the Kings worth $1.5 million, but the Kings canceled his contract due to a failed physical. The Kings were concerned with his right shoulder, but the NBPA and Mbah a Moute's agents have produced their own medical examinations that have cleared him to play. The NBPA will file the grievance next week, so we will post any additional details when we know more. For what it's worth, Mbah a Moute is playing for Team Africa against Team World on Saturday.

Luc Mbah a Moute failed his physical with the Kings, and his contract has been voided.

This is an interesting turn of events, and it's not clear at this time exactly what is wrong with Mbah a Moute. Depending on his condition, it could be difficult for him to ink another deal, but he's unlikely to have much fantasy value regardless of where he winds up.
Thu, Jul 16, 2015 03:47:00 PM

Luc Mbah a Moute has officially signed with the Kings.

Mbah a Moute announced the signing himself on his Instagram account, and he'll provide Sacramento with some emergency depth. He will however be fighting for minutes with Rudy Gay, Omri Casspi and Caron Butler, so he's not going to have any fantasy value in Sacramento.
