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

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

The NBA offseason, quite frankly, has been bananas so far. But inheriting that contract for a player of such limited ability seemed as misguided then as it does now. In return, the Hornets are sending away Marco Belinelli and Miles Plumlee with the No.41 pick.

Dwight Howard's stay with his hometown team was a short one.

The center will now bring down those rebounds for the Hornets, who have bolstered their platoon at center by bringing Howard into the fold without parting ways with key assets.

In 2017, Dwight Howard was traded for the fifth- and 16th-leading scorers on the Charlotte Hornets a few minutes after announcing a Twitter Q&A. In the end, the Hawks were ousted from the first round in six games.

Channel 9 asked fans if they would buy tickets to the Spectrum Center to see Howard play.

Unfortunately, whatever stability built up during Howard's first year with the Hawks was quickly erased by the news of Tuesday's trade to the Charlotte Hornets. Being around him in different settings I have a feel for what he likes to do.

Denver almost acquired Millsap last summer and expressed interest in trading for the four-time All-Star around February's deadline. It's a great city and players love to live here.

On the golf course, there was only a barrage of birdies. "It made me feel a lot better seeing Brooks shoot 5-under", Thomas said. Spieth was well off the lead, but seemed to be feeling much better with his game after shooting 76 in the third round.

Zeller told Clifford he looks forward to not having to play against Howard four times a season.

Assuming no unexpected snag in a conference call with National Basketball Association salary-cap reviewers, the Hornets will become Howard's fifth team in a career that has included eight All-Star appearances.

Howard averaged 13.5 points, 12.7 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game on 63.3% from the field as a member of the Atlanta Hawks last season. "There is no reason he can't get back to playing at a really high level".

MINNEAPOLIS - Nikola Pekovic's combination of size and strength made him a productive and popular player early in his career with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Many said he's not only a good fit for the team, but also a good fit for the city. He now has an experienced center to rely on in the paint and someone to consistently grab his missed shots. It's also worth noting that Dwight and Steve Clifford have a strong relationship and history together after Clifford coached the 6'11 center in Orlando and Los Angeles. Rather than wait and see what their front offices would do, the social media teams for each franchise decided to make a trade.

These are exciting times for a franchise that has never been known for star power.

Now he will try to find his footing once again in Charlotte, who do play a more slow down pace.
