The Denver Nuggets re-signed center Timofey Mozgov to a multiyear contract on Saturday.
Mozgov, 7-foot-1, 250 pounds, averaged 2.6 points and 2.6 rebounds in 8.9 minutes in 41 games for the Nuggets last season. In 130 career games, including 50 starts, with Denver and the New York Knicks, he has averaged 3.9 points and 3.1 rebounds in 12.1 minutes.
"Like all players, Timo just needs an opportunity to play," said general manager Tim Connelly. "He's got a great attitude and mindset toward improving his game, and we're confident that he will help us on the interior in the seasons to come."
Originally signed by New York as an undrafted free agent in 2010, Mozgov joined the Nuggets as part of a three-team trade in 2011.
