Sacramento Kings Consider Timofey Mozgov

The Sacramento Kings are looking to improve their depth in the front court and they plan on doing that by adding center to the mix that can come off of the bench and provide valuable minutes. One of the names that is reportedly being thrown around is center Timofey Mozgov.

From the Sacramento Bee:

The Kings are in the market for another center, one with size who would help protect the rim. They met with former top overall pick Greg Oden this week and have an interest in Denver restricted free agent Timofey Mozgov….

Pursuing Mozgov would be tough. The Nuggets likely would match any offer for him considering they have only one other experienced center, JaVale McGee. The Kings also would have had to amnesty Salmons to present an offer sheet lucrative enough to entice Mozgov, so a sign-and-trade or trade for another player are more feasible options.

With the amount of teams targeting and speaking with Oden, Mozgov sounds like the much more likely option.

If you’re looking to bring a big man off the bench, Mozgov would be well worth the investment.
