Timofey Mozgov
C, 7’1, 275lbs, 30 years old, 7 years of experience

Everything's down. Mozgov's true shooting percentage is down, his free throw rate is doing, his rebounding rate is down, his blocked shots rate is down, and his turnovers are up. His main value was a pretty good mid-range shot, but given that his effectiveness at defending the rim is down and his body type is not suited to defending the perimeter, this one facet does not offset what he takes away. Mozgov was shut down, didn't like it, and being on the wrong side of 30 might well just be a backup on a star's contract going forward. Still, Brooklyn can afford it.

Player Plan: Three years and $48 million remaining, the last year of which is a player option that he should be assumed to be exercising. It wasn’t too long ago that Mozgov was good. But whatever he offers on the court in the near future will have to be quite a lot to every make that contract good. The contract, and the decision to ab-sorb it, was merely means to an end.

   Where Are They Now, 2010; Part 46

- Timofey Mozgov

Mozgov is still with Khimky, which means he's been a Euroleague player. Because of Khimky's tooling-up for the Euroleague campaign, he has had to share the centre spot with Robertas Javtokas, and that means backing him up. But Mozgov still produces when he plays, as well he should, because he's awesome. Mozzy averages 7.3 points and 4.8 rebounds in 18 minutes per game in the Russian league, 13.1/6.0/4.1 in the Euroleague, and 20.4/10.9/5.5 in the VTB United League. We'll ignore the foul rates for now.

   December 15: When the NBA trade game can really begin

This applies only to Brandan Wright, Timofey Mozgov, Tony Allen, Nikola Pekovic, Chase Budinger, J.R. Smith and Tiago Splitter.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
