Nuggets C Timofey Mozgov, better known as the guy from the Blake the Great poster, is going back home to Russia during the lockout.

He’s signed to play with BC Khimki, the team he played for for four years before joining the Knicks.

Mozgov on returning to play for BC Khimki:

“I am glad that everything turned out perfectly. I grew up as a player in Khimki and spent great days in here. I have a lot of friends in the team and the adaptation period to the team will not be a problem,” Mozgov said. “Khimki is my second home and we quickly reached an agreement. I hope I can help the team in the upcoming season.”

Mozgov averaged 3.6 points and 2.7 rebounds and 11.6 minutes in 45 games of action last year (34 for the Knicks and 11 for the Nuggets).

Chris Quinn, who played for the Spurs last season has also signed on to play for the club.
