The Lakers have reportedly agreed to a four-year, $64 million deal with Timofey Mozgov, The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports.

Mozgov, 29, spent last season with the NBA champion Cleveland Cavaliers, averaging 6.3 points and 4.4 rebounds in 17.4 minutes per game while coming off the bench to spell bigs Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson.

The 7' 1", 275-pound Mozgov was acquired by Cleveland for a pair of first-round picks in a midseason trade with Denver in 2014-15. He played a career-high 25.2 minutes per game that season with the Cavs and Nuggets combined, scoring an average of 10.6 points per game with 6.9 rebounds.
