Spurs' backup plan to Oden?
By Joe Kaiser
Reports last week indicated that Sacramento was looking to sign free agent center Timofey Mozgov, but the Kings now reportedly have competition in the form of the San Antonio Spurs.
Steve Kyler of HoopsWorld.com provides an update on Mozgov today.
"There were reports this week that after signing guard Nate Robinson to a free agent deal, the Nuggets could be working on a sign-and-trade deal for Mozgov," Kyler writes. "The Spurs have emerged as a team interested in Mozgov and they could be the team trying to construct a deal with Denver."
ESPN.com's Jeff Goodman and Marc Stein reported Monday that the Spurs are considered to be the co-favorites, along with Miami, to sign free agent center Greg Oden, who is working out for the Heat as well as New Orleans and Sacramento this week.
With that in mind, we have to believe that any deal with Mozgov that involves the Spurs or Kings won't come until after Oden has made a decision and signed with a team.
