MOSCOW, July 26 (R-Sport) - Powerful Russian center Timofey Mozgov is yet to agree a new contract with the NBA’s Denver Nuggets despite rumors to the contrary, he and his agent Stanislav Ryzhkov told R-Sport on Friday.
Mozgov earlier turned down a one-year, $3.9 million contract and Ryzhkov said he was now mulling over a three-year, $14 million deal.
“I haven’t signed a contract with Denver at the current time,” the 7-foot-1 center said.
“Timofey has not accepted the offer yet,” his agent said. “We are counting on all the details of the proposal being worked through by Monday after which we could move onto signing a contract.”
Mozgov was Denver’s backup center last season, averaging 2.6 points and 2.6 rebounds in 41 games.
