7/13/2010 - NBA New York Knicks

NEW YORK -- The New York Knicks have signed Russian center Timofey Mozgov.

The 7-foot-1 Mozgov spent last season with BC Khimki of Russia, averaging 7.5 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.0 blocks in 32 games. The 23-year-old represented Russia at the 2009 European championship, scoring 11 points per game.

The move Tuesday completes a busy stretch for the Knicks, who acquired Amare Stoudemire and three players from Golden State in sign-and-trade deals, and signed point guard Raymond Felton.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
