Northwest Notes: Mozgov, Iggy, Splitter, Wolves

With the Thunder and Nuggets still looking strong, and the Timberwolves and Trail Blazers adding reinforcements, the Northwest could have four playoff contenders in 2013/14. Here's the latest out of the division:

  • The Nuggets are getting "increasingly close" to an agreement with restricted free agent big man Timofey Mozgov, according to GM Tim Connelly (link via Christopher Dempsey of the Denver Post).
  • The Nuggets' failure to re-sign Andre Iguodala wasn't for lack of trying. Within a piece about the Warriors' newest acquisition, Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle says Iguodala passed on a front-loaded five-year, $60MM offer from the Nuggets, and nearly agreed to sign a lucrative deal with the Mavericks just an hour before reaching a deal with the Warriors.
  • According to Chris Haynes of, the Trail Blazers reached an agreement with Tiago Splitter on a four-year, $36MM offer sheet. However, the team backed off when it became apparent that the Spurs would match.
  • Now that the Timberwolves have traded Luke Ridnour, agents for free agent point guards will begin reaching out to the team, tweets Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN Twin Cities. Nate Robinson's camp figures to be among those in contact with the Wolves, though Wolfson doesn't see a fit there.
  • The Jazz hope to use their remaining cap space to take on another contract and pick up another draft pick, as they did in their deal with the Warriors, tweets Bill Oram of the Salt Lake Tribune.

    I love what the Warriors did this year. This could be the tipping point of us taking the mantle of perrenial playoff contenders from the Lakers. I think we just traded places with them. The Clippers are still the team to beat in the west but man are we in the conversation.

      The lakers havent been there for two years the Spurs and OKC are the teams to beat the Clippers have the talent but have yet to prove anything they have alot of new pieces to work in. I like the Warriors starting lineup but the bench is weak and theyve used all there flexibility to get better. they are one injury away from the lottery.
