Timofey Mozgov traded to Cavaliers

The Cavs gave up two first-round picks for Timofey Mozgov.

Blatt has coached Mozgov and is in love with him. He's still in his 20s, doesn't suck and we live in a world where 7-plus-footers have high value (see Roy Hibbert). Plus, one of the picks is top-15 protected, and the other is top-18 protected, I believe. And, neither are the Cavs' regular picks they are additional picks acquired in other trades.

He'll help them because he's better than any center on the Cavaliers right now. But, he's not a reliable option to be the primary rim protector. He's not gonna be the difference between a championship and a second round loss in the playoffs. Bad trade to trade 2 1st rounders.

There are few things in sports more worthless than a non-lottery NBA draft pick - or, in some years, a pick outside the top 1 or 2.
