The professional American basketball team, Charlotte Hornets, has traded Dwight Howard to the Brooklyn Nets in exchange for Timofey Mozgov, the fellow big player. Along with this, cash and two dual second round picks will help the Nets save an amount worth $17 million during the next season. This will also lead to the creation of sufficient cap room for the slot of max-contract in 2019 offseason.
Currently, the 32-years-old proficient basketball player, Dwight Howard is playing a great season. He has around 12.5 rebounds and 16.6 points each game. He also has an average of shooting at a 55.5 clip from the ground. However, the big man is about to mingle with a new team, which will be his fourth sports team. The new game with the fresh team will initiate in the season of 2018-19. In order to make the trade official, the moratorium period for NBA needs ending, which is scheduled on 6th July this year.
The All-Star center Dwight Howard has played with Houston Rockets for three seasons. He was also a free agent of Atlanta Hawks back in 2016, which is his hometown. During this period of time, he also signed a contract of three years.
The Hornets are on the brink of a major organizational change and has already edited the General Manager as well as the coach. The team may also revamp the roster in due course of time.
Steve Clifford, the former coach, considered Howard as the most versed roster in the past five years. However, Hornets failed to accomplish the playoffs as Howard found it difficult to mesh with Nicholas Batum, the guard.
For Mozgov, the shifting will be like a reunion, as Mitch Kupchak, the latest General Manager of Hornets has closed a deal with him of 4 years in exchange for $64 million, back in 2016. This deal was sealed when both of them were in the Los Angeles Lakers.
