Raptors add Patrick Mutombo to bench

The Toronto Raptors have added Patrick Mutombo as an assistant coach, according to Blake Murphy of Raptors Republic.

Mutombo spent last year with the Austin Spurs of the NBA D-League, and before that worked with the Denver Nuggets, first as a player development coordinator and then a full-on assistant. Mutombo is expected to fill in the player development role left open by the departure of Jerry Stackhouse.

Mutombo worked on the Giants of Africa team alongside Masai Ujiri, and also spent time with the Raptors GM in Denver.

As a player, Mutombo played at Metro State in NCAA DII, before making his way to Italy to play in their Lega Basket Serie A. Mutombo also spent time playing in Brazil, Greece, and the NBA D-League’s Bakersfield Jam.
