As a result of the agreement on the exchange between the “Lakers” and “Brooklyn” Timofei Mozgov became a player of “Nets”.
The Russian national team center commented on his move to “Brooklyn”:
– To be honest, information about the exchange was a surprise to me. I did not prepare for it. Although, it is clear that this is the NBA, and here everything can happen very quickly. We need to be calm about any turn of events. So everything is fine. And I do not get used to it – it’s not the first time I’ve been in such a situation. This is also a part of the job. While I can not say anything definite, I managed to communicate briefly by phone with General Manager Sean Marx and Scouting Director Tradgan Langdon, who is well remembered in Russia. A visit to New York is planned for the weekend. At the same time, I am sure that we will discuss everything in more detail. In the meantime, I still continue individual training in Los Angeles.
