The Denver Nuggets have reached agreement on a three-year, $14 million contract extension with restricted free-agent center Timofey Mozgov, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. The deal will include a team option in the third year, a source said. An opportunity for Mozgov to play a significantly increased role with Denver opened because of a draft night deal that sent center Kosta Koufos to the Memphis Grizzlies. Mozgov will play behind starting center JaVale McGee under new coach Brian Shaw. Yahoo! Sports

Several sign-and-trade scenarios were discussed over recent weeks, but Mozgov and the Nuggets were committed to re-partnering after getting closer on the terms of the deal in the past week, sources said. Mozgov, 27, averaged 5.4 points, 4.1 rebounds and 15.6 minutes per game for Denver in 2011-12, but his role decreased this past season under former Nuggets coach George Karl. Yahoo! Sports

Mozgov, a 7'1" center from St. Petersburg, told Izvestia that he'd like to see more Russians play together in the NBA, noting that Andrei Kirilenko and Alexey Shved joined forces in Minnesota last season. But he said, in answer to a question, just being Russian isn't a good enough qualification. "I do not think that this can be a major factor," said Mozgov. " The factors should, in principle, be many. And all of them should be for the good for the team. So, first you need to carefully examine the composition of Brooklyn. If there is a place for me, then anything can happen." NetsDaily

Free agent center Timofey Mozgov is in negotiations with the Denver Nuggets on a multi-year contract to re-sign with the franchise, a league source told RealGM. Ever since making changes within the organization, the Nuggets have become more interested in re-signing Mozgov, trading away Kosta Koufos on draft night. Mozgov has already received a qualifying offer from the Nuggets, but the parameters of a new deal have been discussed as a possible three-year contract with an option on the final season, a source told RealGM.
