The Cleveland Cavaliers attempted to acquire Timofey Mozgov from the Denver Nuggets but were unsuccessful.  With that being said, Mozgov recently indicated that he would like to play alongside of LeBron James and also re-unite with his former coach David Blatt.  

“Of course, it would be interesting to play for David Blatt’s team. I know his coaching philosophy well, after working with him on (the) Russian national team. The thing you like about Blatt is that he always sets the highest goals for himself and for the team.”

“So far all the talks about trade to Cleveland are just rumors. My last season in Denver was good, and to try and do something to leave the team wouldn’t be smart.”

“I would like to play with LeBron. But even though playing for a contender is cool, you got to understand that I want to be part of the team and not to just join a contender and ride the coattails, being a burden.”
