Charlotte Hornets to trade Dwight Howard to Brooklyn Nets
Jun 21, 2018, 19:37
One year ago, the Atlanta Hawks traded Howard to the Hornets for Miles Plumlee, Marco Belinelli and a swap of second-round picks in a trade that took place two days before the 2017 Draft. Shortly after, Yahoo Sports' Shams Charania confirmed the deal and the pieces being flipped.
The Hornets acquired Howard nearly exactly a year ago from the Atlanta Hawks to add rim protection as that veteran Charlotte roster was looking to make a playoff run. That's right, the former Defensive Player of The Year, 8x All-Star, and 8x All-NBA Player is worth no more to Hornets than an overpriced, bench-level big man and some second rounders.
The Nets will save $17 million in 19-20, which will allow them to potentially create two max salary slots.
Charlotte was determined to move out Howard, who has a $23.8 million expiring contract.
Stop us if you have heard this one before, but Dwight Howard's departure was evidently precipitated by some chemistry issues with his teammates.
Howard went to Charlotte and declared himself team leader - despite the presence of Walker, the franchise player. Mozgov, on the other hand, will make $16 million next season in addition to $16.7 million the year after. Last season, he logged in 16.6 points per game, 12.5 rebounds, 1.6 blocks in 81 games. The only other National Basketball Association player in history to accomplish that feat? From 2004-2014, Howard was named to the All-NBA Team eight consecutive times.
Dwight Howard's name can't be mentioned without hearing some snickers.
The deal can't be completed until the moratorium ends on July 6.
