Traded Mozgov’s 2/32mill and two second rounders for Howard’s 1/23mill

Howard has some value, but it mostly looks like they paid two second rounders to clear 16 mill in space for next summer

Wonder what that says about the value of taking on bad contracts

Why on earth would Charlotte do that deal? Maybe Howard is just that big of a cancer to a team.

It's weird how we were desperate to ink Dampier to a major contract because getting a center that could average a double double was essential for success.

Howard puts up 17-13-2 and he's filler in a trade about salary cap and luxury tax

Can't be mud feet in today's league, but those stats also didn't help his team win. Howard hasn't helped his team win since his Orlando days.

NBA commissioner Adam Silver understands how some fans are upset that Kevin Durant was able to sign with an already loaded team, but he gives the Golden State Warriors credit for working within the rules to make it happen.

That doesn't mean Silver isn't already thinking about tweaks that can be made in the next collective bargaining agreement to make the NBA a more level playing field.
Just name it the "Kevin Durant" rule Hope he never cracks the Top-20 all time. Dude doesn't deserve it no matter how many rings he'll get. A new rule "preventing" super teams would definitely put his move into an unique (bad) light historically.

Gives credit to them working within the rules to make it happen? As opposed to....

Giving people credit for things they’re supposed to do?


Cue my Homer Simpson voice, “... that’s the American way!”

Chris Haynes: Dwight Howard and Brooklyn will negotiate a buyout to enter free-agency, league sources tell ESPN.
Watch him go to GS.
