LALCenter: 7’1, 275 lbs; 8th year, Russia 

NBA Role: interior scorer 

A massive 7-footer, Timo Mozgov is a fit for teams that wanna slow it down; skilled down low (can go over either shoulder for hooks & short Js – very patient) but doesn’t always play with enough AUTHORI-TAH; loves to set up shop on the left block, has a high-release J that maxes out a few feet beyond the FT line; slow-footed: struggles to defend the paint at times and he cannot, under any circumstance, play in an exclusively uptempo setting; more of a powerful pickup truck than a Maserati but Shump (CLE) likes the nickname, so whatever; is a verb (Mozgov’d); Timo may not be the prized free agency catch Lakers fans were hoping for but he adds depth, gives Luke Walton solid min. in limited action (avg. under 25 min./night)
