Originally written January 15, 2013 on NBA Injury News:
When Denver Nuggets' center Timofey Mozgov spoke with media yesterday, a firestorm of rumors erupted.  The Nuggets have been rumored to be looking for a trade partner and could move Mozgov.  The fourth year player seemed to be perfectly willing to accept a trade, and he understood the Miami Heat were looking for a center.  However, it seems the Heat have no interest in Mozgov.Chris Tomasson of Fox Sports Florida reported that the Nuggets were looking to trade Mozgov.  When asked about a possible deal, Mozgov did not shy away from the possibility of being traded."It think it’s logical, you can see that, trading me," Mozgov told Tomasson. "I’m in my contract year. So if they can get something for me, I don’t think it would be a surprise for me."The rumors began to build that the Heat, who could use a back-up center, may be interested.  Those rumors were quickly squashed by Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.There are no rumors, just a player asked about Heat possibly looking for a center. RT @delgadovaMozgov rumors ?— Ira Winderman (@IraHeatBeat) January 15, 2013Mozgov, as mentioned above, is in his contract year.  This means the Nuggets may simply be looking to get a return on a middle of the road player.  Mozgov has averaged 4.2 points and 3.3 rebounds per game in his career.  So far this season, he is averaging just 10 minutes per game.
