Dwight Howard Traded While Tweeting About Trades

The Hawks are sending Howard and the No. 31 overall pick in tomorrow's National Basketball Association draft to Charlotte for center Miles Plumlee, shooting guard Marco Belinelli and the 41st pick, the person told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

Clifford and Cho said Howard can provide the rim protection, rebounding and physicality the Hornets often lacked last season, going 36-46 and missing the playoffs.

"The guy averaged 13 rebounds a game previous year", Clifford said. There's also reason to think he can thrive under Hornets head coach Steve Clifford, an assistant under Van Gundy during Howard's time in Orlando.

"I know what he has to do to play well", Clifford said Wednesday.

The move is seen largely as a salary dump by the Hawks, who signed Howard to a three-year, $70.5million contract last year. A former 20-per game scorer, Howard average 13.5 points per game last season.

Queen's Speech: Corbyn attacks 'Government without majority'
Several key manifesto pledges have been dropped, with the Tories left without a majority since the general election. The main non-Brexit bills include a domestic violence and abuse bill and a data protection bill .

Given Howard's pedigree, it's assumed that he'll start at center, bumping Zeller from the lineup.

"It was very hard". "He joked to me this morning that there's a lot of good things about the trade, and one of them is, 'I don't have to play against [Howard] four times this year.' But it does speak to the mindset that he has. I think we have professional guys who badly want to win and they're excited about it". Howard was unhappy after playing limited minutes in the Hawks first-round playoff series against the Washington Wizards.

Trading Dwight Howard was not the worst choice for general manager Travis Schlenk, as he freed up some cap space through this trade.

"It is extremely important for our organization that we maintain our flexibility and this trade helps us achieve that critical goal", Schlenk said in a statement. If they can sign Millsap at all, hopefully, the Hawks can make a better trade with Millsap than they made with Dwight Howard. Wade told the Bulls he will take his $23.8 million deal for next season, a decision he had until next week to make. It was a big move for the Lakers in another way; Mozgov is still owed $48 million over the next three seasons, while Lopez's contract will expire after next season. Belinelli, 31, is set to earn $6.6 million in the final year of his deal. He began last season with the Milwaukee Bucks before being dealt to Charlotte before the trade deadline.

David Aldridge of Turner Sports backed that up with a report that the two sides had engaged in talks that would have sent the second overall pick of the draft to Sacramento in exchange for the Kings' two first-round picks.
