Dwight Howard headed from Charlotte Hornets to Brooklyn Nets

When he landed, a deal with the then-New Jersey Nets was set to be consummated, sending the superstar center to join Deron Williams and form a potential super team in the Eastern Conference.

The Charlotte Hornets have traded center Dwight Howard to the Brooklyn Nets, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

An eight-time All-Star and former No. 1 overall pick is about to join his fourth team in three years.

The Charlotte Hornets' experiment with future Hall-of-Fame center Dwight Howard will end imminently with the team trading him to the Brooklyn Nets, an National Basketball Association source confirmed Wednesday.

"Guys were just sick and exhausted of his act", said Haywood, according to Howard Beck of Sports Illustrated. The Atlanta Hawks did the same thing last summer when they sent Howard to Charlotte for Marco Belinelli and Mason Plumlee.

Howard will suit up for his third team in three seasons, becoming somewhat of an National Basketball Association journeyman after being a staple in Orlando during the start of his career. The news was also confirmed by Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer. He is due to make $23.8m this season, the final year of his contract.

The Nets will save almost $17 million on the trade in the 2019-20 season, allowing them to create two max salary slots for 2019 free agency.

Brooklyn obviously won't be a contender next season, but Howard still could give the club some positive momentum entering next offseason, where it will have the opportunity to sign two max-level free agents.

It would be fitting if a buyout did happen, though, given how long the Nets once pursued Howard - only to have him leave them at the altar after that flight from San Antonio to Orlando.
