  • Nets may be finally digging out of worst NBA trade ever with Dwight Howard swap

Shortly after, Yahoo Sports' Shams Charania confirmed the deal and the pieces being flipped.

Howard has a $23.8 million expiring contract, but the move will save the Nets $17 million in 2019-20, which will allow them to create two max salary slots.

Howard had his best season offensively in a while in Charlotte, as he averaged 16.6 points and 12.5 rebounds per game. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the teams have not announced the trade and the league can not approve the deal until the trade moratorium ends on July 6.

Osorio survived calls for his head after his team were thrashed 7-0 by Chile at the Copa America Centenario two years ago. The goal decided the match - a match Germany didn't expect to lose. "The game was close and I just wanted to do my job".

The Hornets will receive the Nets' second-round pick (No. 45) in Thursday's National Basketball Association draft and a 2021 second-round pick. Next season is the final year of the three-year, $70.5 million contract he signed with the Atlanta Hawks in the Summer of Exploding Cash before being dealt to Charlotte two days before the 2017 NBA Draft.

Brooklyn will be Howard's fourth team in as many seasons. The Hornets, who are in the midst of a major organizational shake-up, having already replaced their general manager and coach, could be on the verge of shaking up their roster, too.

The Nets will be the fifth team that Howard has played for in his career.

Instead it is the fact that the Reds face home games following their six Champions League group stage matches. City will be the first team since Manchester United in 2008-09 looking to retain the Premier League title.

This is a reunion of sorts for Mozgov.

The Nets will save almost $17 million on the trade in the 2019-20 season, allowing them to create two max salary slots for 2019 free agency.

Mozgov's numbers pale in comparison to Howard's.

They weren't the only favourite to struggle, with Brazil drawing with Switzerland while Germany lost to Mexico . With this disappointing start by the Germans, it is yet to be seen if they can match Brazil's long-held record.

The Nets will be Howard's sixth National Basketball Association team in the past eight seasons and his fourth different franchise in four years. Mozgov, a 31-year-old big man who signed his current four-year deal with a Los Angeles front office led by new Hornets GM Mitch Kupchak, averaged 4.2 points and 3.2 rebounds while playing only 31 games for the Nets.
