Hornets Agree To Trade Dwight Howard To Nets For Timofey Mozgov


Shortly after, Yahoo Sports' Shams Charania confirmed the deal and the pieces being flipped. The deal cannot be made official until the league lifts its moratorium on July 6.

This hasn't been the first time teams have complained about Howard, as even the Atlanta Hawks had reportedly developed animosity for him over the course of one season, which seems consistent with the mood in Charlotte.

The Hornets entered the offseason determined to dump Howard's salary and per Wojnarowski, the second-round picks include this year's No. 45 overall selection, acquired from the Milwaukee Bucks in the Rashad Vaughn deal on February 5, and a 2021 pick.

Mozgov has two years, $32.7 million left on his contract.

But he wore out his welcome after one season and was dealt to Charlotte.

This is a reunion of sorts for Mozgov. With two slots for max contracts, the Nets could make big moves in free agency-next offseason, Klay Thompson and Kawhi Leonard, among others, are expected to hit the market. Charlotte general manager Mitch Kupchak signed Mozgov to the four-year, $64 million deal with the Los Angeles Lakers two years ago.

Mozgov's numbers pale in comparison to Howard's. By contrast, Howard has averaged 17.4 points, 12.7 rebound and two blocks per game since joining the league in 2004.

The Nets will be Howard's sixth National Basketball Association team in the past eight seasons and his fourth different franchise in four years. The center only played in 31 games for the Nets last season, averaging 4.2 points per game.
