Dwight Howard is now a Charlotte Hornet.
With the 2017 NBA Draft going down this Thursday night, plenty of teams are already starting to make some big moves. Earlier on Tuesday, ESPN reported that Lakers point guard D’Angelo Russell was traded to the Brooklyn Nets for center Brook Lopez and another 1st round draft pick, and now Dwight Howard reportedly just got moved.
According to The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Atlanta Hawks center Dwight Howard has been traded to the Charlotte Hornets for Miles Plumlee, Marco Belinelli, and the 41st pick in Thursday’s NBA draft in exchange for Howard and the 31st pick as well.
Coincidentally, just minutes prior to the trade being announced, Howard took to twitter to ask his own followers what their thoughts on the trades were thus far, but little did he know that he’d be one of them minutes later.
Check out the series tweets & announcement (below).
