Hornets traded Dwight Howard to the Nets

The Charlotte Hornets' experiment with future Hall-of-Fame center Dwight Howard will end imminently with the team trading him to the Brooklyn Nets, an National Basketball Association source confirmed Wednesday.

Dwight Howard is on the move again. Doing so could allow Brooklyn to have two max contract slots at their disposal next summer, giving the Nets a chance to jump into free agency in a big way during a summer in which several all-stars should be available.

Howard would appear to be a unusual fit for the Nets, given Brooklyn has young center Jarrett Allen.

It appears the next step of the rebuild is taking shape and general manager Sean Marks has maneuvered Brooklyn back to relevance that much more quickly. He averaged 16.6 points, 12.5 rebounds, and 1.6 blocks in 30.4 minutes per game, and shot 55.5 percent from the floor.

That agent stopped one vehicle and radioed a description of the other two vehicles to other agents, the agency said. Four people were pronounced dead at the scene, others were taken to area hospitals.

Howard is unquestionably a future Hall of Famer, but his personality has led him to be handed off from team to team. He now has a three-year, $70.5 million contract, which he signed with the Hawks in 2016.

Mozgov, 31, averaged 4.2 points per game and 3.2 rebounds in 31 games for the Nets last season. It's no surprise to see that he did not want Howard on his team this time around.

Howard's just a piece of the puzzle, no longer a centerpiece.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the deal can't be completed until the moratorium ends on July 6. The Atlanta Hawks did the same thing last summer when they sent Howard to Charlotte for Marco Belinelli and Mason Plumlee.
