Brooklyn Nets center Timofey Mozgov didn’t see much playing time with the Brooklyn Nets last season, and he told both Izvestia and Radio Mayak that he wasn’t happy with the lack of playing time. He expects to play more in the 2018-19 season, even if it’s for another team (h/t Nets Daily): 

“I have not broken anything. What influenced [Kenny Atkinson’s] decision … for me, it remains a mystery. I don’t know any reason why I first lost my place in the starting five and then not playing even a minute. But it’s the head coach’s decision, and he is responsible for result.

“I tried to speak to Atkinson, but he was not able to give me answer. Anyway, I’m confident. Just want to play for Brooklyn or any other NBA team. I tried to talk to him, but I did not succeed in drawing out something intelligible.”

In 31 games last year, Mozgov averaged 4.2 points and 3.2 rebounds in just 11.6 minutes per contest.
