The Brooklyn Nets have acquired Dwight Howard from the Charlotte Hornets. In return, the Nets will receive Timofey Mozgov, two second round picks and cash considerations.

Howard is a $28.3 million expiring contract and Mozgov has two years left at $32.7 million. This trade has now helped the Nets save roughly $17 million in salary cap space for the 2019-2020 season. This allows them to have two max salary slots for the 2019 free agency period. The deal will also help center Jarrett Allen, as he now has a mentor in Howard. At one point, Howard was among the best centers in the NBA.

Howard had a pretty solid season for the Hornets as he averaged 16.6 points, 12.5 rebounds, 1.6 blocks as well as 55.5% shooting from the field during the 2017-18 NBA season.
