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

This marks the second straight season in which a team was determined to give Howard away for pennies on the dollar, just to get him out of its locker room.

Mozgov, first through his agent and later on a personal entry on Scorum, expressed his unhappiness with how his playing time vanished last season.

The deal is particularly fascinating because Brooklyn was able to dump Mozgov's contract, which they took exactly one year ago to the day when they acquired D'Angelo Russell from the Los Angeles Lakers.

Howard will play alongside his former teammate Jeremy Lin, who was also his point guard with the Houston Rockets for one season.

They could form a center tandem with Howard and Allen splitting time, while Allen gets to observe some of the veteran tricks Howard has picked up over the course of 14 National Basketball Association campaigns.

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

For the Nets, the deal will clear around $17 million in cap space after next season.

The Hornets will receive the Nets' second-round pick (No. 45) in Thursday's National Basketball Association draft and a 2021 second-round pick, league sources said.

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