The Cavs have targeted the 7-foot-1 Mozgov for several months and came to an agreement in principle, said the person said on condition of anonymity because the NBA still has to approve the trade. Analysis: With starting center Anderson Varejao out for the season with a torn Achilles tendon, the Cavs needed a front-line scorer and defender to complement forwards Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson. Mozgov played for Cavs coach David Blatt on the Russian national team, winning a bronze medal together at the 2012 London Olympics. He's averaged 8.5 points and 7.8 rebounds in 35 games for the Nuggets.
