Dwight Howard headed from Charlotte Hornets to Brooklyn Nets

Dwight Howard has played 14 NBA seasons. More

Charlotte was determined to move out Howard, who has a $23.8 million expiring contract. According to former National Basketball Association player Brendan Haywood, members of the Hornets' locker room had grown "sick and tired" of the antics of the big man.

After spending three seasons with the Houston Rockets, Howard was acquired by his hometown Atlanta Hawks in 2016 as a free agent and signed a three-year contract. While the draft picks will certainly hold value to new general manager Mitch Kupchak, this deal is all about shifting money around. The only other National Basketball Association player in history to accomplish that feat? From 2004-2014, Howard was named to the All-NBA Team eight consecutive times. So he might not be interested in taking on a reduced role. Mozgov, on the other hand, will make $16 million next season in addition to $16.7 million the year after. There would be no need to stretch the buyout (nor would that be wise with Deron Williams still showing up on the cap list for the next two years at nearly $5.5 million per annum).

The Hornets receive Brooklyn's second-round picks in 2018 (No. 45 overall) and 2021.

Trump assails Canadian tariffs, accuses people of smuggling USA goods home
Negotiations to modernize NAFTA started last August and were initially scheduled to finish by the end of December 2017. But then the president railed against the North American Free Trade Agreement between the U.S., Canada, and Mexico .

Dwight Howard's name can't be mentioned without hearing some snickers.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the deal can't be completed until the moratorium ends on July 6. When he landed, a deal with the then-New Jersey Nets was set to be consummated, sending the superstar center to join Deron Williams and form a potential super team in the Eastern Conference.

Getting that, along with a path to two max salary slots in 2019-20 in exchange for getting rid of a grumbling Timofey Mozgov?
