Hawks trade Dwight Howard to Hornets

Hawks trade Dwight Howard to Hornets

Dwight Howard has been dealt with the Hornets along with a second round pick in exchange for Marco Belinelli, Miles Plumlee, and a second round draft pick.

Howard joins a Charlotte franchise that finished last season with a record of 36-46, missing out on the playoffs. The decision was surprising, as the team has agreed to trade center Dwight Howard after just one season, according to ESPN's Marc J. Spears.

The Hornets will be the fourth team Howard has played in 12 years in the National Basketball Association. Howard and Clifford were together with the Orlando Magic and Los Angeles Lakers, and Clifford had been interested in acquiring the three-time Defensive Player of the Year in recent seasons, league sources said.

In the following year, fake parts scandals prompted an investigation and spread fear over nuclear plants' safety. South Korea now operates 25 nuclear reactors, which generate about a third of the country's power supply.

After leaving the Houston Rockets as a free agent in 2016, Howard signed a three-year, $70 million contract with his hometown Hawks.

Last season with Atlanta, Howard averaged 13.5 points, 12.7 boards, and 1.2 blocks per game while posting an impressive 7.8 nERD rating - ranking him 24th among all 486 National Basketball Association players. The center averaged just 2.5 points per game in all of previous year and 2.1 rebounds per game.
