"They brought him off the injured list, and he was pretty much doing the same thing he was doing on the injured list, which is nothing." - Chris Jefferies about Rick Brunson. Team mates, but not friends.
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.
[...] With one exception: the date becomes Jan. 15 if the player is a Larry Bird or Early Bird free agent who re-signed with his over-the-cap team and received a raise greater than 20% in the first season of his new deal in the process. 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.
