Dwight Howard has finalized a buyout with the Brooklyn Nets and will sign a 1-year deal for the tax MLE with the Washington Wizards once he clears waivers, league sources tell The Athletic.

John Wall goes from possibly teaming up with his old bud DeMarcus Cousins to landing former Brooklyn Net Dwight Howard.
Howard actually had a somewhat solid season from a numbers standpoint in Charlotte last year. He finished averaging 16.6 points, 12.5 rebounds and 1.6 blocks per game. Not too shabby for the 32-year-old center, but Howard hasn’t seemed to mesh well with some teams. Last month he was traded from Charlotte to Brooklyn and it seemed clear the Nets had no intentions of keeping him.
According to The Athletic the Nets finally worked out Howard’s buyout and he will play one season with the Wizards.
Let’s hope Wall can work some magic and Howard makes it work with the Wizards. I’m still on the #BoogieToDCin2019 train. The band needs to get back together.
