Dwight Howard is offically a Brooklyn Net.
In a midly surprising move, the Charolette Hornets traded center Dwight Howard to the Brooklyn Nets for center Timofey Mozgov, two future second-round picks and cash. The Hornets will recieve the Nets second round pick in this Thursday’s draft.
Mozgov has two years and $32.7 million left on his contract. Charlotte general manager Mitch Kupchak signed Mozgov to a four-year, $64 million deal with the Los Angeles Lakers two years ago.
The deal will not be completed until July 6.
Howard, 32, an eight-time NBA All-Star, is changing teams for the third time in nearly three years, from the Houston Rockets to Atlanta Hawks to Charlotte and now Brooklyn.
