Mutombo joins London Lightning

Western Carolina's own Harouna Mutombo joins Ontario's London Lightning of the National Basketball League of Canada.

“Harouna has been working out with NBA trainers in Atlanta, Georgia, and jumped at this opportunity. He comes well recommended by several NBA coaches and scouts and we look forward to having him in London,” Lightning general manager Taylor Brown said.

The Lightning are hoping to have Mutombo in the lineup for the team’s Dec. 19 game against the Halifax Rainmen.
