Hornets trade Dwight Howard to Nets for Timofey Mozgov

Charlotte Hornets have traded Dwight Howard for Timofey Mozgov, and this is probably a very unexpected move by Michael Jordan' Front Office. With the Nets set to move into Brooklyn later that year, it was a chance for one of the league's biggest stars to become the foundational face of the team's transition into the Big Apple.

Howard's just a piece of the puzzle, no longer a centerpiece. The news was also confirmed by Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer. 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.

The Nets will save almost $17 million on the trade in the 2019-20 season, allowing them to create two max salary slots for 2019 free agency.

"We do not want adults to bring children into this country unlawfully either, placing them at risk", he said. She seeks cooperation with other European Union nations. "It won't be.

It would be fitting if a buyout did happen, though, given how long the Nets once pursued Howard - only to have him leave them at the altar after that flight from San Antonio to Orlando.
