Report Nets acquire Dwight Howard send Hornets Mozgov

The Brooklyn Nets have acquired Dwight Howard from the Charlotte Hornets for Timofey Mozgov, two second round picks and cash. He is due to make $23.8 million this season, the final year of his contract.

The Brooklyn Nets have traded Timofey Mozgov for Dwight Howard, which gets them salary-cap space for the 2019-20 National Basketball Association season.

He played in only 31 games last season for the Nets, averaging 4.2 points and 3.2 rebounds.

Howard will be 33 in December and is set to play for his fourth team in four seasons.

How did new Hornets GM Mitch Kupchak do in his first major move for the franchise, and what does Howard's arrival mean for Brooklyn?

The Nets will save $17 million in 19-20, which will allow them to potentially create two max salary slots.

Microsoft employees revolt over firm's 'proud support' of US ICE
Customs and Border Protection on these immigration policies and is "not aware" of its software "being used for this goal ". A Microsoft spokesperson confirmed that an employee "briefly deleted the blog after seeing commentary in social media".

He's not the player who won three straight Defensive Player of the Year awards from 2008-11.

Howard is unquestionably a future Hall of Famer, but his personality has led him to be handed off from team to team. By contrast, Howard has averaged 17.4 points, 12.7 rebound and two blocks per game since joining the league in 2004. So he might not be interested in taking on a reduced role.

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

The Hornets will get the Nets' second-round pick Thursday night (45th overall) and a second-round pick in 2021, the person said.

"Guys were just sick and exhausted of his act", said Haywood, according to Howard Beck of Sports Illustrated.
