The Charlotte Hornets Have Surprisingly Traded A Superstar For Timofey Mozgov

Adjust Comment Print

According to reports, the Charlotte Hornets have agreed to send the veteran center to BK in exchange for Timofey Mozgov, two future second-round picks and cash. Shortly after, Yahoo Sports' Shams Charania confirmed the deal and the pieces being flipped. The Hornets will be Mozgov's sixth National Basketball Association team in seven seasons. With two slots for max contracts, the Nets could make big moves in free agency-next offseason, Klay Thompson and Kawhi Leonard, among others, are expected to hit the market.

Mozgov, 31, now has a four-year, $64 million contract, which he signed with the Lakers in 2016. After spending the first eight seasons of his career in Orlando, Howard has played for the Lakers (2012-13), the Houston Rockets (2013-16), the Hawks (2016-17), the Hornets (2017-18) and, now, the Nets.

He's not the player who won three straight Defensive Player of the Year awards from 2008-11. He holds career averages of 17.4 points per game and 12.7 rebounds. There would be no need to stretch the buyout (nor would that be wise with Deron Williams still showing up on the cap list for the next two years at nearly $5.5 million per annum).

While adding Walker could potentially aid the Cavs in re-signing James, Cleveland possesses assets - the No. 8 pick in Thursday's draft and expiring contracts - which could help the Hornets tear their roster down while simultaneously infusing it with youth.
