So ... does this mean they intend to keep Timofey Mozgov long term? Or is this GM speak for "we didn't get the right offer, so we are just going to roll the dice"? To be honest, I have no idea. Doesn't seem practical to keep a third 7 foot center on your roster who rarely plays and makes $3 million. Maybe the Nuggets have a grand plan in mind? That, I guess, resides only in the mind of Masai Ujiri and Josh Kroenke.
In the meantime, the Nuggets will stand pat the rest of this year. I'm perfectly fine with this. The core needed to grow together without the specter of constant trades hanging over their heads, and I think Masai knew that as well. Plus, it seemed as if the Nuggets (according to reports) were not interested in deals where they took on extra money. This could either mean they wanted to cut salary with a potential Moz trade ... OR ... Masai really means what he says and they wanted to keep Mozgov because they see potential in him.
