Future Hall of Famer Dwight Howard keeps getting traded

Share

After spending the first eight seasons of his career in Orlando, Howard has played for the Lakers (2012-13), the Houston Rockets (2013-16), the Hawks (2016-17), the Hornets (2017-18) and, now, the Nets.

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.

The deal can't be completed until the moratorium ends on July 6.

Mozgov was not a significant factor for the Nets this season.

If that's the case, the Nets could simply waive him, eat the $23.8 million cap hit and free up the two max slots for 2019-20.

One trade that's already been floated around is a deal in which Cleveland would acquire Walker and Nicolas Batum in exchange for Jordan Clarkson, J.R. Smith, Ante Zizic and the No. 8 pick.

As the Cavs look to bolster their roster in an effort to retain LeBron James, Charlotte presents the rare trade partner who might be willing to part with its star-caliber players.

This is a reunion of sorts for Mozgov.

Mozgov has two years, $32.7 million left on his contract. Yet, for Howard, it's not the numbers that are the problem... it's everything else. 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. The only other National Basketball Association player in history to accomplish that feat?

His rim protection should help what has been a poor defensive team and he could help in the pick-and-roll with Russell and Jeremy Lin, but the biggest incentive to the Nets is likely for salary reasons with Howard's contract expiring after next season.
