DWIGHT Howard is on the move again – and for the second time in a month.
The journeyman NBA big man has completed a buyout with the Brooklyn Nets and has agreed to a one-year deal with the Washington Wizards.
Jared Weiss of The Athletic reported the development on Wednesday, Manila time.

The Charlotte Hornets traded Howard to the Nets last month, before the once-promising big man sought to buy out his contract to become an unrestricted free agent, leading to his move to the Wizards.
Howard is expected to start for the Wizards, who traded Marcin Gortat to the Los Angeles Clippers for Austin Rivers.
