Wojnarowski: Hornets trade Dwight Howard to Nets for Timofey Mozgov and two second round picks

The Charlotte Hornets have traded center Dwight Howard to the Brooklyn Nets in exchange for center Timofey Mozgov and two second round picks, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

What It Means:

Howard is entering the final year of his contract worth $23.8 million dollars, and with Mozgov's bloated contract, the Nets will end up saving $17 million in cap space for the summer fo 2019. This potentially gives them the ability to sign two max contracts next summer. For Howard it's another stop on his career-ending tour of the league, but he should get plenty of opportunity in Brooklyn if he stays there the whole year. However, the trade could stunt the growth of Jarrett Allen for the Nets. For the Hornets it should open up some more playing time for Cody Zeller and Frank Kaminsky at center.

Howard had another productive year for the Hornets in 2017-18. He averaged 16.6 points, 12.5 rebounds, 1.3 assists, and 1.6 blocks over 30.4 minutes per game. He owned a 55.6 effective field goal percentage, and his nERD of 3.6 ranked him 51st in our rankings.

Cavaliers' LeBron James not fond of playing in Houston next season

Cleveland Cavaliers forward and potential free agent LeBron James reportedly does not want to play for the Houston Rockets next season.

What It Means:

According to ESPN's Steven A. Smith, James' pal Chris Paul has been telling people in Houston to not get their hopes up about James playing for the Rockets next season. CP3 expects the King to opt out of Cleveland and join the Los Angles Lakers next season with the possibility of building a superteam alongside Paul George and Kawhi Leonard.

James dominated in his 15th NBA season, dropping 27.5 points along with a career-high 8.6 rebounds and 9.1 assists per game in 2017-18.

Timberwolves' Jamal Crawford declines player option for 2018-19 season

Minnesota Timberwolves guard Jamal Crawford declined his player option for the 2018-19 season, making him an unrestricted free agent.

What It Means:

The 38-year-old Crawford could have made $4.5M next season but has decided to pursue his options in free agency. The veteran could be looking to latch on to a title contender, even if he makes less money, as tries to end his career with a championship.

Crawford scored just 10.3 points per game on 41.5% shooting in 2017-18.

Rudy Gay opts out of his contract with San Antonio

San Antonio Spurs forward Rudy Gay has declined his player option for the 2018-19 season, making him an unrestricted free agent.

What It Means:

With all the uncertainty in San Antonio with the trade demand by Kawhi Leonard, Gay may be looking for the chance to play for a contender, which the Spurs may not be sans Leonard. The 31-year-old is leaving $8.8M on the table and may need to take a lesser deal next season.

Gay was a mild disappointment as he averaged just 11.5 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 1.3 assists in 21.7 minutes per game with the Spurs last season.

Pelicans' DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) progressing to pool work in rehab

NBA Free agent center DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) has progressed to training in a pool and running on a treadmill as part of his rehab from a ruptured Achilles.

What It Means:

Cousins ruptured his Achilles on January 26, so he is making great progress not yet six months removed from the injury. However, the injury came as Cousins is set to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, so it will be interesting if he is still given long term deals from potential suitors. However, it does look like Cousins will return at some point in the 2018-19 season, but for which team remains a mystery.

Before his injury, Cousins averaged 25.2 points, 12.9 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 1.6 steals, and 1.6 blocks over 36.2 minutes per game. His nERD of 2.3 ranked him 76th among all players in 2017-18.
