The Brooklyn Nets are trying to stir up excitement over the apparent rebuild that the franchise is currently undergoing.

Nets forward Timofey Mozgov is doing his part to create some hype for this upcoming season by talking up his new teammate D’Angelo Russell.

The Nets acquires third-year guard from the Los Angeles Lakers in exchange for center Brook Lopez.

Mozgov is looking forward to playing alongside Russell in Brooklyn.

“He’s going to shoot threes a lot because he’s a really, really good shooter first of all” Mozgov said (h/t Tass.ru’s Andrey Kartashov).

“He’s really talented and I hope he’s going to feed me.”

Its not hard to envision a big season for Russell, who is looking for a fresh start after a rocky start to his NBA career while a member of the Los Angeles Lakers.

Brooklyn is also hoping that Russell morphs into a franchise cornerstone as the team builds towards the future.
