8-time NBA All-Star Dwight Howard traded to Charlotte Hornets

8-time NBA All-Star Dwight Howard traded to Charlotte Hornets

The Atlanta Hawks have unloaded center Dwight Howard and the two years, $47 million-plus left on his contract to the Charlotte Hornets, league sources told The Vertical. The decision was surprising, as the team has agreed to trade center Dwight Howard after just one season, according to ESPN's Marc J. Spears.

Howard averaged 13.5 points and 12.7 rebounds for the Hawks last season, though he was an awkward fit for Mike Budenholzer's pace-and-space offense.

The Hawks gave up on the three-year, $70 million contract to which they inked Howard last offseason, when they hoped his presence and defensive expertise would help Atlanta over the playoff hump.

The Hawks still have three draft picks in Thursday's draft.

Ronaldo only leaving if a club pays €1billion exit clause, insists Perez
But I have no doubts about Cristiano. "We're definitely following him, but I can't tell you everything we'll do". Portuguese-born Mourinho is accused of defrauding Spain of €3.3m (£2.9m; $3.6m) in taxes between 2011 and 2012.

He now moves onto his fifth National Basketball Association franchise, adding the Hornets to a list that already includes the Orlando Magic, Rockets, Los Angeles Lakers and Hawks.

The Hornets will be the fourth team Howard has played in 12 years in the National Basketball Association.

The deal reunites Howard with Hornets coach Steve Clifford, who served as an assistant coach with the Orlando Magic and the LA Lakers during his time with both teams.
