The finger wag celebration is BACK … ’cause NBA rookie Mfiondu Kabengele says he got approval from his Hall of Fame uncle Dikembe Mutombo to use his signature block celebration!!!

… well, sort of. He’s just gotta keep his wallet nearby.

TMZ Sports spoke with the 6’10”, 250 lb. ex-Florida State star one day after getting drafted by the LA Clippers … and he says he can’t wait to get to LA and meet his new teammates and coach Doc Rivers.

But being the relative of one of the all-time greats — with an equally great trademark celly — we had to ask if he’s gotten Dikembe’s approval to use the signature wag.

“I think so, but I gotta pay him every single time when I do it, so I gotta be extra careful with it,” Kabengele says.

Now, he could be joking … or maybe Mutombo’s showing his nephew some tough love — after all, rookies gotta learn, right?

Regardless, Kabengele says his unk is really proud of him for getting drafted … and excited to see what he can do with the Clippers.
