Dwight Howard is reportedly off to Charlotte after one year with his hometown Atlanta Hawks.

Howard, who is coming off of his 13th NBA season, averaged 13.5 points and 12.7 rebounds for the Hawks last year.

He is an eight-time All-Star, a five-time All-NBA player, and three-time Defensive Player of the Year.

Now, he will be joining Kemba Walker, Nicolas Batum, and the Hornets.

The Undefeated's Marc Spears broke the news via Twitter (although he was a few years behind on the Charlotte franchise's rebranding).

The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Howard is being sent, along with the No. 31 pick, for Marco Belinelli, Miles Plumlee, and No. 41.
