Former NBA Champion Timofey Mozgov is reportedly expected to play for Russia NT in Split OQT later this month, as reported by Eurohoops. Mozgov recently returned after a long absence to injuries, playing 6 games for Khimki in VTB League this season.
Afterward, the 30-year-old guard explained his departure from EuroLeague power CSKA Moscow last month after he was suspended indefinitely over an altercation with coach Dimitris Itoudis. “Some things happened in my personal life and I felt like stuff didn’t go how I thought somebody should handle my situations,” said James, who previously was suspended by the club in January. “We had a little clash there. Not really as a basketball player did I have a clash with Itoudis, more as an individual. As two men we had clashes, not really on the basketball court.”
