6/22/2018 Carmelo Anthony, OKC, F
Anthony plans to opt in and take the $28 million he is due next season. The New York Times first reported Anthony's decision to bypass the chance to become a free agent. A person with knowledge of details confirmed Anthony's choice and spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the situation publicly.

Analysis: The Thunder traded for Anthony and Paul George to join Russell Westbrook before last season, moves that gave them high hopes of challenging Golden State in the West. Anthony averaged 16.2 points per game, but he struggled at times in his new role as a spot shooter. His playing time dwindled in the playoffs and he wasn't happy.
6/20/2018 Dwight Howard, Cha, F-C
A person familiar with the situation says the Charlotte Hornets have agreed to Howard to the Brooklyn Nets for center Timofey Mozgov and two future second-round draft picks.

Analysis: Howard played only one season for Charlotte, averaging 16.6 points and 12.5 rebounds. He is due to make $23.8 million this season, the final year of his contract.
6/20/2018 Timofey Mozgov, Bkn, C
A person familiar with the situation says the Charlotte Hornets have agreed to trade eight-time All-Star center Dwight Howard to the Brooklyn Nets for Mozgov and two future second-round draft picks.

Analysis: The Lakers freed themselves from a four-year, $64 million contract that they signed Mozgov to in July 2016 by sending him to the Nets last June. Mozgov averaged 4.2 points and 3.2 rebounds in 31 games last season.
