Clippers’ Mfiondu Kabengele double-double NBA Summer League debut

Los Angeles Clippers Canadian rookie Mfiondu Kabengele wasted no time reminding NBA GM’s that he should have been selected a lot higher than the 27th pick of the of the 2019 NBA Draft.

Kabengele dropped a strong and efficient 21-point, 10 rebound double-double in the Clippers 93-87 NBA summer League debut against the Los Angeles Lakers in Las Vegas.

The Burlington, Ontario native and shot an efficient 7-of-14 from the floor and 6-of-8 from the foul line and knocked 1-of-4 triples.

Kabengele’s outstanding game currently ranks at best game thus far by a Canadian at 2019 NBA Summer League — where a record number of Canadians are invading Las Vegas.

Marial Shayok also had an outstanding NBA summer league debut with 19 points.
