Still trying to figure this out from Charlotte's POV. 

Then again, it's Charlotte so there very well might be little logic to it.
Its all about dodging the luxury tax.

Their salary books are UGLY:

Howard 23.5
Batum 24
Marvin Williams 14
MKG 13
Cody Zeller 12.5
Kemba 12
Lamb 7

The Howard/Batum/Wiliams/MKG/Zeller contracts total out to 87 million for not a lot of production yikes.

This is them admitting that they're stuck with Batum and aren't going to compete for the playoffs in all odds.

But this is a coup for the Nets...

They not only lose one extra year of Mozgov... But they only lost two second rounders...

Lakers gave up D'Angelo Russell to get rid of Mozgov's LOL.

If Dwight has anything left, we'll see. At best he's 12-14 PPG/8-10 RPG type of guy.

With the Dwight Howard trade, only Allen Crabbe will have a guaranteed contract for the Nets in 2019-20. The Nets could potentially have up to $60M+ in room next summer but will be contingent on the restricted free agency of D'Angelo Russell and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson.

How is that his best when he averaged 16.5 and 12.5 last year

Pretty drastic shift in the landscape of the East.

Are the Nets now on Kawhi's radar?  And if so, can we somehow upgrade to Joe Harris?

Something like Brown + 27 + salary for Harris?




Its tarheels.

He's probably hoping Kyrie leaves us to join Kawhi.

Wow..traded again..he must be a bad teammate

It has to be Mitch Kupchak just convincing the Hornets board that he's not good to have in that locker room.

I could be very wrong, but I haven't read anything about him being a terrible teammate last year.

I meant to write at his worst, but gee thanks pointing out.

Also he took 11.2 FGA, one of his most attempts in his recent years. I don't know if the Nets would be okay with him taking too many shots, unless he can get back to his rare form and cleaning the glass more. I think he'll average realistically 14 PPG and at least 12 RPG, considering they have an uptempo offense.

If I'm the Nets, I release him. I don't want him anywhere near the culture I'm creating.

The Nets are a group of hard-working, hungry, young players. Dwight would bring bad habits in.

Can they simply release a guy that they just traded for? I didn't know that.

Wasn't trying to be to rude about it. I was surprised how good his numbers were last year to be honest. I would be interested in seeing what he can do in Brooklyn if they keep him.

Technically the trade isn't going to finalize under after July 1st, they would need to send out additional salary to match Howard's if they wish to do it earlier.

Yeah I got a little salty, my apologies for snapping back.

Same here though. He had that awesome 29 pts/7 assists GSW game, and the Nets where he dropped 32/30.

But how far can a team go if he's your 2nd/3rd option? He stated post game during one loss that he felt like he should be getting more touches/focal point.

Oh dang, our Brooklyn from 2013/2014 suddenly went to becoming a potential superteam.

LeBron James, Paul George/Kawhi Leonard, and Dwight Howard in Brooklyn? Holy smokes.

Funny how the world works. Remember when D12 to the Nets was big news?

Yeah. Back before the era of small-ball and 3-point longball shooting existed.
