NBA Trade Rumors: Cavs Eye Kings Center Kosta Koufos, Ben McLemore, Unlikely To Re-Sign Timofey Mozgov

The Cleveland Cavaliers are pursuing Sacramento Kings’ back-up center Kosta Koufos. The Cavs have already targeted Ben McLemore from the Kings.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are pursuing Sacramento Kings’ back-up center Kosta Koufos. The Cavs have already targeted Ben McLemore from the Kings.

The Kings are determined to end their nine-year playoff drought, and the franchise is preferring immediate help in trade talks rather than future picks, according to SB Nation. The Kings earlier declined an offer from the Cavs that would have sent Mozgov at Sacramento.

The Cavs are unlikely to re-sign Mozgov. Rather, LeBron James’ team’s front office is more interested in signing big man Kosta Koufos and Ben McLemore of the Kings, as reported by Morning News USA.

Mozgov is set to become an unrestricted free agent this season and has a tradeable $5 million salary, according to Real GM. The Cavs have utilized him for lesser minutes this season, as they have Kevin Love, Tristan Thompson and Anderson Varejao playing longer.

Mozgov had a disappointing season this year and is unlikely to grab a max deal. Ben McLemore is trying to work out a trade partner with the Kings. McLemore is represented by agent Rich Paul and was the seventh overall pick of the Kings in 2013. It’s likely that McLemore is heading towards Cleveland.
