Mutombo rejects lottery conspiracy after Twitter mistake

NEW YORK (AP) Dikembe Mutombo is rejecting the idea of another NBA draft lottery conspiracy.

Mutombo congratulated the Philadelphia 76ers on winning the No. 1 pick with a tweet Tuesday that came about four hours before the lottery. But he tells The Associated Press it was a "mistake that happened" and that he had no knowledge that the 76ers would win.

"I want to let people know there was no conspiracy," Mutombo said in a phone interview.
