Dwight Howard headed from Charlotte Hornets to Brooklyn Nets

Dwight Howard headed from Charlotte Hornets to Brooklyn Nets

With that salary-cap space, plus being able to use their own first-round picks again, the Nets may soon finally recover from their disastrous 2013 trade with the Boston Celtics.

The Charlotte Hornets have agreed to trade the future Hall of Famer to the Brooklyn Nets for center Timofey Mozgov, two second-round picks and cash considerations, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. However, the trade itself can not be completed until the moratorium ends on July 6, and Brooklyn will need money to expire off the salary cap to take on Howard's salary.

Howard, 32, is owed $23.2 million in the final year of his contract, while the remaining $32.7 million due to Mozgov is spread over the next two seasons. Recently hired Hornets general manager Mitch Kupchak signed Mozgov to a four-year, $64 million deal in 2016 when both were with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Many watching felt replays showed that Risdon did get the faintest of touches on the ball. The team's defence is solid and they were unlucky in the end.

The Hornets also will receive two second-round draft choices.

Either way, the Nets current, odd purgatory of not being able to rebuild through the draft of free agency is finally set to end.

Mozgov has two years left on his contract at $16 million per season. The deal cannot be made official until the league lifts its moratorium on July 6. Yet, for Howard, it's not the numbers that are the problem... it's everything else.

I sort of disagreed with that but I still like Harry. "I couldn't be more proud of those two, I think they'll do a fabulous job". Angela Levin, a royal commentator and a biographer of Prince Harry , revealed Ms Markle would have been upset but the interview.

Mozgov, 31, averaged 4.2 points per game and 3.2 rebounds in 31 games for the Nets last season.

He was traded to the Nets last summer by the Lakers as part of the part of their trade for D'Angelo Russell. He averaged 16.6 points, 12.5 rebounds, and 1.6 blocks in 30.4 minutes per game, and shot 55.5 percent from the floor.
