Fear the Links: Timofey Mozgov's having a weird week

Cavs center Timofey Mozgov is having an odd week.

Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

Cleveland Cavaliers center Timofey Mozgov isn't having a normal week.

Earlier this week, as reported by Yahoo's Marc Spears, teams have been calling the Cavs to see if Mozgov is available. Right now, it seems, the Cavs aren't interested in dealing Mozgov, which makes a lot of sense and it's hard to imagine a deal presenting itself for the Cavs to actual trade Mozgov.

Last night, things got a little touchier for Mozgov when a fan grabbed his butt during the Cavs' 125-99 win over the Timberwolves. Talk about awkward.

Elsewhere, Kyrie Irving and LeBron James are still in line to start in February's All-Star game. So much for the in-game video hyping John Wall over Irving, Wizards.

LeBron James has begun pushing to get J.R. Smith in this year's three-point shooting contest in Toronto. It'd be even better if Smith and Irving participated.

In a bit of sad news, John Johnson passed away at the age of 68. Johnson was technically the first Cavalier ever after being drafted seventh overall in the 1970 NBA Draft. He also made two All-Star game appearances for the Cavs in 1971 and 1972.

Lastly, SI's Richard Deitsch had's Chris Haynes on his media podcast to talk about the Cavs and his column about LeBron's response to the Tamir Rice situation.
