The NBA offseason does not really stop for anybody. The Atlanta Hawks agreed to trade center Dwight Howard to the Charlotte Hornets, Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated reported Tuesday.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, the Hornets agreed to send Miles Plumlee and Marco Belinelli and 41st pick to Atlanta. Charlotte will also receive the 31st pick of the draft.

The move comes hours after the Los Angeles Lakers agreed to trade D’Angelo Russell to the Brooklyn Nets.

Howard signed a three-year, $70.5 million deal with the Hawks last offseason. He only played one year in Atlanta.
