Timofey Mozgov Signs With Khimki Moscow 

Post#1 » by Howard Mass » Thu Aug 1, 2019 2:45 am

Timofey Mozgov

has signed overseas.

Given how The Magic could very well carry 14 on the main roster next season, it will be like last season as Mozzi sat out the whole season.

It's a shame that he did not play that one game for The Magic but he will be on the cap for three more years via the stretch provision.

I wish him the best in Russia.

That had to have been one of the worst contracts in the history of the NBA.

He was professional and enthusiastic on our bench though. I wish him well.

ORL will get some small amount of cap setoff from the fact he signed with someone, but given its equal to half the difference between his deal and the vet min for experienced players ($1.6m), I can't see it being much. He only signed a one year deal and he's injured. Be surprised if he's getting more than a couple of million, incentive heavy.

I didn’t know that, interesting. Thought it was only if you sign with another NBA club.

yeah, i dont think they get any money back. plus, he was stretched, so that is different. This isnt like a coach that is fired and gets a new job, so the money owed is reduced.

Not sure how many people have seen it, but he occasionally writes blog posts about what's going on with his life (though it's been a while). They're pretty insightful and you can tell he's a genuinely good guy: https://scorum.com/en-us/profile/@timofey.mozgov

Still a great trade. Mozgov was way better for team morale than Biyombo would’ve been.

Mozgov is "the gift" that keeps giving.

Orlando will pay him $5.6M this year, next year, and the year after (2021/22).

...

To be fair, last year Byombo went 4.4/0.6/4.6 in 14.5 mpg. At a payroll line of $17M. So Orlando actually did save money by trading and stretching Mozgov. That hurts to accents.
