"I'm talking to a lot of people already since [Monday]," Mutombo told Houston's Fox 26. "I'm just talking to the people who can cut the check and they can make me be part of it. I'm working on that."
Mutombo, 51, said he missed an opportunity to purchase the Atlanta Hawks in 2015. A group led by Hall of Famer Grant Hill and billionaire philanthropist Antony Ressler bought the Hawks for $730 million.
