Sources: Wizards trade Howard to Grizz for Miles

The Washington Wizards have traded Dwight Howard to the Memphis Grizzlies for CJ Miles, league sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Grizzlies will waive or trade Howard, according to a source, however it is possible there no longer exists a marketplace of teams interested in signing Howard.

The deal saves Memphis $3.1 million.

Howard, 33, played only nine games for the Wizards last season because of a back injury. The former All-NBA center averaged 16.6 points and 12.5 rebounds in 30.4 minutes per game for the Charlotte Hornets in the 2017-18 season.

Miles, 32, averaged 9.3 points in 22.6 minutes per game for the Grizzlies, who acquired the wing in February in the Marc Gasol trade with the Toronto Raptors.
