Luc Mbah a Moute Earns Final Roster Spot over Chuck Hayes

After failing a physical and losing his contract with the Sacramento Kings, Luc Mbah a Moute has secured the final roster spot of the Clippers.

According to Ben Bolch, the Clippers have given Luc Mbah a Moute a guaranteed spot on the roster.  The final spot on the team seemed to have been Chuck Hayes' to lose when he was initially signed to his summer contract, but after Mbah a Moute failed his physical with the Kings, the Clippers decided to give him a shot at a roster spot as well.  Although Hayes may fill more of a need, he showed up out of shape and played poorly in his preseason appearances.  On the other hand, although not a remarkable addition, Luc provides some defensive consistency and can provide some minutes as a reserve.
