fraschilla on mozgov (espn insider needed)

7

can't post the whole article obviously, but here is the section on our boy, mozart... Timo Mozgov, Russia (New York Knicks) 21 mpg, 13 ppg, 4.4 rpg, 64% FG, 78% FT The 7-foot-1 Russian's four quick baskets against Team USA in the quarterfinals showed why Donnie Walsh and the Knicks signed him to a three-year, $9 million contract. Mozgov, who was not drafted two years ago, is a late developer with excellent strength and above-average athletic ability. He runs the court well, will bang inside and can be a defender around the rim. On the other hand, his offensive low-post package of skills is nonexistent and he has average hands, at best. He is a forceful roller in the screen-and-roll game, though, and he provides a large target when he gets to the rim. Mozgov would have been a top-15 pick in what I thought was a weak draft. Guys like Ekpe Udoh, Cole Aldrich, Larry Sanders and Greg Monroe, who were all first-round selections, would have been hard-pressed to play the way Mozgov did in Turkey.
