Dwight Howard will once again be a free agent after reports suggest that the embattled big man and the Brooklyn Nets will negotiate a buyout after his trade from the Charlotte Hornets.


ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported Wednesday that the Nets picked up Howard in exchange for center Timofey Mozgov, a 2018 second-round pick, and a 2021 second-round pick in the NBA Draft.

Following his buyout, Howard will become an unrestricted free agent. Howard was set to enter the final year of his contract, at over $23.8 million remaining.
