Mutombo Could Be Here Next Week

So says Dikembe Mutombo

The 7-2 free agent center who helped the 76ers reach the NBA Finals in 2000-01, and who says ''I will be in Boston or San Antonio by the end of the year,'' is trying to raise at least $2 million to help treat the thousands of patients who have been coming, mostly on an out-patient basis, to the hospital he has built in his native Democratic Republic Of The Congo.

** update:  As Ryan mentioned in the comments.  It's possible that "end of the year" could mean end of the season.  I guess we need some clarification.

    Does he maybe mean by the end of the season and not the end of 2008?

    I like it. I dont know if he can still play but I still like it. We need some more size and height down below. O’bryant ain’t in the rotation and bib baby and Powe are a bit to short to match up with some centers in this league.

  • Ryan… you could be right. I just assumed it was 2008.

    I would hope he means by the end of 2008, I feel like he’d need a good amount of time to practice and fit in with the team to learn his role.
