Report: Wolves Wanted Mozgov, Looking To Trade Or Buy Out Roy

8486839It looks like Minnesota is on the hunt for a big man as well as some wing players. Take a look at this report by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

The Minnesota Timberwolves were turned down on an offer of Brandon Roy and a first-round pick to Denver for center Timofey Mozgov, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Denver is combing the market further for offers on Mozgov. He will be a restricted free agent this summer, and the emergence of Kosta Koufos could make it hard for Denver to match an offer sheet for Mozgov.

That’s really a bummer for Denver, who are deep in bigs with JaVale McGee, Mozgov, and Koufos. While they don’t have a superstar, they’re pretty deep in nearly every position. It’s just that they can’t afford everybody and Mozgov might be the one to go.

As for Minnesota, they wanted a good back-up to Nikola Pekovic. His back-ups right now are Greg Stiemsma and Chris Johnson. Getting Mozgov would’ve been good for the Timberwolves.

As for Brandon Roy, a buyout is likely going to happen. It had been discussed in the past. Everyone in the league seems to understand that Roy might have played his final game in the NBA. Roy had knee surgery in November and revealed a few days later that he was one step away from knee replacement. He’s had setback after setback on his rehab. Roy hasn’t given up on his comeback but it’s likely not going to materialze and the Wolves want to save money or open up a roster spot by buying him out.

And an open roster spot could mean the chance to add a back-up to Pekovic or another wing player. Currently, the Wolves are starting two point guards in Luke Ridnour and Ricky Rubio. Then they have J.J. Barea as a back-up point guard and Alexey Shved as the back-up two-guard. Chase Budinger still isn’t back from knee surgery and Andrei Kirilenko has missed some games due to a quadricep injury. Another wing would be nice for the Wolves.

Nevertheless, it looks like the Wolves will be active as well. We’ll see if they make a move before Thursday.
