The Lakers are making a “serious run” at unrestricted free agent Timofey Mozgov according to the Vertical.
The Lakers need a center and it makes sense to try and secure one early and hopefully get a deal while the market focuses on bigger names. Mozgov needs his knee to be healthy and he needs to get his confidence back.
Update: Woj reports that the Lakers are looking at a four-year, $65 million deal for Mozgov. Free agency 2016 has officially begun.
Update II: That part about ‘hopefully get a deal’ from the original update is real funny now.
Mozgoz will earn $16 million per season, four-year deal, source told The Times.
