James feels the addition of
"It's funny, I was talking to my friend the other day and I said he's probably the best, as far as big, true big," James said, per Cleveland.com. "You know, Chris Bosh is a great big, Kevin Love is a great big. But I'm talking about a true, 7-foot, big guy. He's probably the best one I've played with since Z (Zydrunas Ilgauskas).
"They have different skill sets, but they both have skill. They know how to play. Some times you get a lot of bigs that are just big. He knows how to play and it's great to have him out there."
Mozgov has had double-doubles in back-to-back games.
"He's going to be on the scouting report," James said of Mozgov. "Once you're on the scouting report, you start hitting the opposing team's scouting report then you know you're starting to do some good things. And he's going to be on that. He's a walking double-double."
He is averaging 9.3 points and 9.0 rebounds in six games since his acquisition.
"I think since he’s came in here, he’s applied himself extremely well," coach Dave Blatt said, per the team's official website. "He’s fit right in and he’s a great fit for our team. The skill set that he has and his activity level is just a great fit for our team. We’ll miss Andy Varejao for a good period of time. We played not a short period of time without our starting center but obviously when Timo (Timofey) came in, he filled a big void and he’s just applied himself extremely well."
Mozgov, who had nine points and eight rebounds in his Cavs' debut, will visit Phoenix on Tuesday.
Mozgov was recently acquired by the club, and needed to take a physical in oder to be cleared to play. There were conflicting reports early on Friday, but it appears Mozgov is set, and will take on the Warriors. He's averaging 8.5 points and 7.8 rebounds per game.
