Dwight Howard Traded To Brooklyn Nets

"Guys were just sick and exhausted of his act", said Haywood, according to Howard Beck of Sports Illustrated. According to former player-turned-analyst Brendan Haywood, the Hornets locker room had just about had it with Howard's antics.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski‏ reports that the team is finalizing a deal to send centre Dwight Howard to the Brooklyn Nets for centre Timofey Mozgov.

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

There have also been rumours of a smaller iPhone SE 2 (2018) which could cram in an iPhone X style edge-to-edge notch screen. The mockups are made based on "final design" schematics floating through the Asian supply chain, reports Macotakara .

Howard's decision to stay in Orlando marked the beginning of the vagabond stage of his career. That was his best season in the last four years and this trade is a really big surprise. Both Atlanta and Charlotte decided they needed to move on from him as soon as new general managers took over those franchises. For the Nets, trading Mozgov will allow them to save the $17 million remaining on his deal for the 2019-20 season, and gives them the space needed to potentially create two max salary slots. Howard could even be bought out by the Nets, though that has not been publicly broached to this point.

While the 32-year-old Howard undoubtedly is in the back nine of his career, he had a decent 2017-18 season for Charlotte, averaging 16.6 points and 12.5 rebounds while playing in 81 of the team's 82 games.
