How the Dwight Howard-Timofey Mozgov trade could affect the Cleveland Cavaliers

Report Nets acquire Dwight Howard send Hornets Mozgov

The Brooklyn Nets rumors exploded Wednesday morning when ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported the team is finalizing a deal with the Charlotte Hornets that would offload disgruntled big man Timofey Mozgov and bring in the expiring contract of Dwight Howard.

After all, Howard isn't playing bad by any means, averaging 16.6 points, 12.5 rebounds, and 1.6 blocks per game for Charlotte last season.

Brooklyn will be Howard's fourth National Basketball Association team in four years.

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.

For Brooklyn, this trade is not about getting Howard - it's about dumping Mozgov's $17 million salary for the 2019-20 season. He had acquired Howard in a trade when he was with the Lakers as well but their relationship soured as the big man's tenure with the team did not live up to initial expectations.

The weird and unique story of this fallen star is one of the most intriguing in the National Basketball Association right now.

Howard went to Charlotte and declared himself team leader - despite the presence of Walker, the franchise player.

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

It happened with the Hawks a year ago. He will make $23.8 million next season before becoming a free agent.

Howard's just a piece of the puzzle, no longer a centerpiece.

The deal can't be completed until the moratorium ends on July 6. The only other National Basketball Association player in history to accomplish that feat?

One year ago, the Atlanta Hawks traded Howard to the Hornets for Miles Plumlee, Marco Belinelli and a swap of second-round picks in a trade that took place two days before the 2017 NBA Draft.
