LOS ANGELES — A person familiar with the negotiations tells The Associated Press that Russian center Timofey Mozgov has agreed to a four-year, $64 million contract with the Los Angeles Lakers.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Thursday night because the deal can’t be signed until July 7.

The Lakers moved swiftly in the opening minutes of the NBA’s free agent signing period to use a big portion of their roughly $55 million in cap room on the 7-foot-1 Mozgov, a six-year NBA veteran.

He won a ring with the Cleveland Cavaliers last month, but barely played in the postseason, averaging 5.8 minutes in 13 playoff appearances. He started 48 games for the Cavs during the regular season, averaging 6.3 points and 4.4 rebounds while making 56.5 percent of his shots.
