Lakers Sign Timofey Mozgov

Lakers Sign Timofey Mozgov

The Los Angeles Lakers got the free agency period in the NBA started when they signed center Timofey Mozgov. It's a 4-year deal worth $64 million.

Mozgov who turns 30 this month, averaged 6.3 points and 4.4 rebounds in a little over 17 minutes a game with Cleveland last year.

Clearly the Lakers need a center and Mozgov will be a good fit for the team, however he is clearly not worth $64 million. This is a guy who did not play in four of the final ten Cleveland Cavaliers playoff games, not because he was hurt, but he was a DNP- Coaches Decision.

So good for you Mozgov as you will be getting paid! He will have more of an opportunity to play next season in LA then he did in Cleveland this year. Could have some decent value next year in fantasy.
