Rockets re-sign 42-y-o Dikembe Mutombo

The Houston Rockets re-signed 42-year-old center Dikembe Mutombo for the rest of the season on Tuesday.
The move gave the Rockets an emotional leader and a backup to Yao Ming.
Mutombo appeared in 39 games for Houston last season, logging most of his minutes after Yao broke his left foot in February. Mutombo, an eight-time All-Star, averaged five rebounds, three points and 1.2 blocks.
He became a free agent after last season and contemplated retirement before deciding to come back for an 18th season.
