In less than a month, Timofey Mozgov is unlikely to be with the Nuggets. Since the beginning of the year, calls from other NBA teams have come rolling in concerning a trade for Mozgov more than for any other player on the Denver roster.
Mozgov sits and watches all of this, expressing a desire to stick around. But he prioritizes playing time over staying in Denver. “I want to play,” he said Thursday.
“I want to stay,” he said. “But more than I want to stay, I want to play.” The Miami Heat is among several teams believed to be interested in Mozgov.
