Shortly after, Yahoo Sports' Shams Charania confirmed the deal and the pieces being flipped. From 2004-2014, Howard was named to the All-NBA Team eight consecutive times. According to former National Basketball Association player Brendan Haywood, members of the Hornets' locker room had grown "sick and tired" of the antics of the big man. While the draft picks will certainly hold value to new general manager Mitch Kupchak, this deal is all about shifting money around.

This hasn't been the first time teams have complained about Howard, as even the Atlanta Hawks had reportedly developed animosity for him over the course of one season, which seems consistent with the mood in Charlotte. By contrast, Howard has averaged 17.4 points, 12.7 rebound and two blocks per game since joining the league in 2004.

The Hornets are in a delicate place, with a ton of bad contracts on their roster and a bona fide star in Kemba Walker who will be an unrestricted free agent next summer.

Mozgov, on the other hand, has two years, $32.7 million left on his contract.

The deal can't be completed until the moratorium ends on July 6. The 31-year-old averaged 11.6 minutes, 4.2 points, and 3.2 rebounds per game.

The Hornets will get the Nets' second-round pick Thursday night (45th overall) and a second-round pick in 2021, the person said.

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.
