If I'm the Nets, I release him. I don't want him anywhere near the culture I'm creating.
The Nets are a group of hard-working, hungry, young players. Dwight would bring bad habits in.
Can they simply release a guy that they just traded for? I didn't know that.
Technically the trade isn't going to finalize under after July 1st, they would need to send out additional salary to match Howard's if they wish to do it earlier.
But this is a coup for the Nets...
They not only lose one extra year of Mozgov... But they only lost two second rounders...
Lakers gave up D'Angelo Russell to get rid of Mozgov's LOL.
If Dwight has anything left, we'll see. At best he's 12-14 PPG/8-10 RPG type of guy.
With the Dwight Howard trade, only Allen Crabbe will have a guaranteed contract for the Nets in 2019-20. The Nets could potentially have up to $60M+ in room next summer but will be contingent on the restricted free agency of D'Angelo Russell and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson.
How is that his best when he averaged 16.5 and 12.5 last year
I meant to write at his worst, but gee thanks pointing out.
Also he took 11.2 FGA, one of his most attempts in his recent years. I don't know if the Nets would be okay with him taking too many shots, unless he can get back to his rare form and cleaning the glass more. I think he'll average realistically 14 PPG and at least 12 RPG, considering they have an uptempo offense.
Wasn't trying to be to rude about it. I was surprised how good his numbers were last year to be honest. I would be interested in seeing what he can do in Brooklyn if they keep him.
Yeah I got a little salty, my apologies for snapping back.
Same here though. He had that awesome 29 pts/7 assists GSW game, and the Nets where he dropped 32/30.
But how far can a team go if he's your 2nd/3rd option? He stated post game during one loss that he felt like he should be getting more touches/focal point.
