If you’re an NBA free agent, it helps if you’re a member of the NBA champs.
Cleveland Cavaliers’ scrubeenie Timofey Mozgov, who got little playing time as the Cavs won this year’s NBA finals, is cashing in.
The Vertical and ESPN are reporting that Mozgov has agreed to a four-year contract with the Los Angeles Lakers worth $64 million.
Mozgov averaged about six minutes per game in the playoffs for Cleveland, scoring 1.2 points and getting 1.6 rebounds. A year ago, he scored 10.6 points and had 7.3 rebounds per game in the playoffs, playing 26.5 minutes.
He had a shoulder injury earlier in the season that set him back.
