Brooklyn Nets center Timofey Mozgov isn’t exactly happy with the playing time he receives and the role he has with his team.

Mozgov’s agent, Stanislav Ryzhov, said to The New York Post that his client doesn’t really like sitting the bulk of the games at the bench since he feels that he deserves more than the average of 11.6 minutes he spent on the floor this season.

Per The New York Post:

“Yes, Mozgov is not satisfied, and Nets know about it. He is motivated to play and hates sitting on the bench,” Ryzhov said. “We are 100 percent sure that he is still a contributor, even in nowadays super-fast NBA fashion. However, it makes no sense now to put a trade ultimatum, considering [the] general situation this summer in the league and Timofey’s contract. We’re sure if some good trade possibility comes, we are going to work it out.”

Mozgov averaged 4.2 points and 3.2 rebounds in 2017-2018. This was the eight season for the Russian 2016 NBA champion in the league.
