Wizards' Dwight Howard: Finalizes buyout, to sign with Wizards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Howard has finalized a buyout with the Nets and has agreed to a one-year contract with the Wizards, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.

Howard was dealt to the Nets in June to allow the team to shed the final few years of an ugly Timofey Mozgov contract. However, Brooklyn never had the intention of keeping Howard and he's now been bought out as expected. With his options wide open, Howard has agreed to stay in the Eastern Conference and will join a playoff contender in the Wizards. Washington recently dealt last year's starting center, Marcin Gortat, to the Clippers, so Howard will immediately jump into the starting five and could push for a 30-minute role once again. Ian Mahinmi represents the only real threat to Howard's playing time at the position and he tallied just 14.7 minutes per game during the 2017-18 campaign. Despite heading into his 15th NBA season, Howard is still just 32 years old and averaged 16.6 points, 12.5 rebounds and 1.6 blocks across 81 games last year with Charlotte.

Nets' Dwight Howard: Negotiating buyout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Howard is expected to be bought out by the Nets once the trade with Charlotte is finalized on July 6, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.

The Nets traded for Howard earlier in the week in an effort to shed the final two years of Timofey Mozgov's contract, which opens multiple max salary slots starting in 2019-20. However, it appears they have no plans of keeping the 32-year-old veteran and a buyout is fully expected to be completed in the next few weeks. That paves the way for Jarrett Allen, the Nets first-round pick in 2017, to take the reigns at center, as the team shifts to developing some of its younger talent. Howard's future, on the other hand, is a bit unclear. There will surely be a handful of teams interested in bringing in the big man, though he's suited up for three organizations over the last three years, which may suggest teams haven't been overly enthused with his locker room presence. Howard still averaged 16.6 points, 12.5 rebounds and 1.6 blocks in 81 games with Charlotte, so he still has plenty left in the tank heading into his 15th year in the league.

Hornets' Dwight Howard: Headed to Brooklyn
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Hornets agreed in principle Wednesday to a trade that will send Howard to the Nets in exchange for Timofey Mozgov, two future second-round picks and cash, league sources informed Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. The deal won't be finalized until July 6, when the new salary cap calendar begins, according to Bobby Marks of ESPN.com.

Howard has now been dealt in back-to-back summers and will suit up for his fourth team in as many seasons in 2018-19, assuming Brooklyn doesn't intend to deal him elsewhere this offseason. While Howard provides a rim-protecting presence in the middle and amounts to a clear upgrade over Mozgov, who was phased out of the rotation last season, the Nets' main motivation in the deal was likely to free up cap space to create two max salary slots. Howard, who averaged 16.6 points, 12.5 rebounds and 1.6 blocks in 30.4 minutes per game in 2017-18 while suiting up for his 81 contests -- his most since 2009-10 -- will likely slot in as the starting center for Brooklyn to begin the upcoming campaign. However, with 20-year-old Jarrett Allen coming off a strong rookie year and likely viewed as the Nets' long-term answer at the position, it wouldn't be surprised if Howard's role gradually declined as the season progressed.

Hornets' Dwight Howard: Hauls in 17 boards as season ends
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Howard recorded 14 points (6-14 FG, 2-4 FT), 17 rebounds and one block across 27 minutes during a 119-93 win over the Pacers on Tuesday.

Howard attained his 10th consecutive double-double during the team's regular season finale. The team didn't have much success on the season, but it wasn't due to Howard, whose average of just shy of 17.0 points per game marked his best scoring average since the 2013-14 season.

Hornets' Dwight Howard: Double-doubles in blowout win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Howard contributed 16 points (5-10 FG, 6-8 FT), 17 rebounds, four blocks and two assists across 28 minutes during Friday's 137-100 win over the Magic.

Howard came in under his season average in minutes, but he still scored in double-digits for the 16th straight game and rounded out his double-double with a dominant night on the glass. The four swats were his most in 13 contests, and it was just his second time recording multiple blocks since Mar. 15. Howard continues to see heavy usage for a Hornets team headed for the lottery, and he'll look to continue his productive ways in a favorable matchup with the Pacers on Sunday.
