“I’m the kind of guy that likes to play basketball,” Mozgov said. “It was not easy at all. Deeper in the season it was a bit more harder. Sometimes it’s not about you, it’s about the team.”

The Russian center expects to play next season and does not think that Ivica Zubac will replace him in the starting lineup when the season opens. “I’ve got a feeling,” he said, while declining to offer details from an earlier meeting with Lakers President Magic Johnson, GM Rob Pelinka and Coach Luke Walton.

He continued by saying that he would spend the off-season working on his three-point shot and footwork around the rim.
