Timofey Mozgov: "If there is a place for me (in Brooklyn), then anything can happen"

Richard Mackson-US PRESSWIRE

If there's any place where the Nets seem set, it's center/power forward, where the Nets have four players 6'11' or taller. So this sounds like a long shot at best, but Timofey Mozgov tells Izvestia, the Russian newspaper, that he'd be happy to play for Russian owner Mikhail Prokhorov, in Brooklyn.

Mozgov, a 7'1" center from St. Petersburg, told Izvestia that he'd like to see more Russians play together in the NBA, noting that Andrei Kirilenko and Alexey Shved joined forces in Minnesota last season. But he said, in answer to a question, just being Russian isn't a good enough qualification.

"I do not think that this can be a major factor," said Mozgov. " The factors should, in principle, be many. And all of them should be for the good for the team. So, first you need to carefully examine the composition of Brooklyn. If there is a place for me, then anything can happen."

But unlikely. Not only is Brooklyn stacked, with Kevin Garnett, Brook Lopez, Andray Blatche and Mason Plumlee, the 26-year-old is a restricted free agent and Denver is likely to match any reasonable offer.
