2019 Fantasy Outlook
Kabengele, selected 27th overall by the Clippers, was voted the 2018-19 ACC Sixth Man of the Year. He averaged 13.2 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.5 blocks across 21.6 minutes. His shot-blocking upside and potential three-point shooting ability (36.9 percent from three on 65 attempts last season) make him a prototypical modern NBA center. The 6-foot-10, 250-pound big man impressed during four summer league appearances, averaging 17.0 points on 13.5 shots, 7.8 rebounds and 1.5 blocks across 26.0 minutes. But it seems unlikely he'll see significant action as a rookie considering he'll be behind both Montrezl Harrell and Ivica Zubac at center. Kabengele may be largely relegated to the G League barring frontcourt injuries to the Clippers. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio

Mfiondu Tshimanga Kabengele was born in Burlington, Ontario, Canada, to Tshilongo and Tshimanga Kabengele. His parents are originally from the Democratic Republic of the Congo but later moved to Canada, where Kabengele grew up. Kabengele's uncle is Dikembe Mutombo, a Hall of Famer who played in the NBA for 18 seasons. Kabengele attended high school at the Corpus Christi Catholic Secondary School in Burlington before transferring to the Bosco Institute in Crown Point, Indiana. He then went to college and played basketball at Florida State. He attended the NBA Draft wearing a suit jacket on which each of his teammates' names was stitched.

College/International Summary

Despite never starting a game for Florida State, Kabengale made an impact. The 6-foot-10 forward redshirted for the 2015-16 season. When he returned to the active roster, he scored in double digits in four of his first five games, including a 16-point, 12-rebound effort against Citadel. That performance was one of his two double-doubles, with the second coming in the first round of the NCAA Tournament against Missouri. On the season, Kabengale averaged 7.2 points and 4.6 rebounds in 14.8 minutes. He received more minutes (21.6) as a sophomore and his production increased. The nephew of Dikembe Mutumbo averaged 13.2 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.5 blocks. The big man also hit 36.9 percent of his three-point attempts. He had 24 points and 10 rebounds in a loss to Duke. Kabengale saved his best performances for the Big Dance. He had back-to-back 20-point games in wins over Vermont and Murray State. After his sophomore season, Kabengale declared for the 2019 NBA Draft.

ANALYSIS
Kabengele rejoins the parent club after playing 19 minutes for Agua Caliente in its 123-118 loss to the South Bay Lakers on Saturday, finishing the contest with 19 points (7-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, four steals, one assist and one block. He's unlikely to see the floor in Sunday's game against the 76ers unless the contest turns into a blowout.
