The Washington Wizards have agreed to trade the three-time Defensive Player of the Year and eight-time All-Star to the Memphis Grizzlies for swingman CJ Miles, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Wherever Howard ends up, he will likely be playing for his fifth team in five years. From a basketball standpoint, all indications are that Howard won't stick around in Memphis for too terribly long, though it will be interesting to see if the 33-year-old center commands any kind of interest around the league at this stage.

That's right...it's finally July sixth but leave it to the Grizz to make one more deal, right at the deadline.

Memphis also reportedly waived Avery Bradley in a cost-cutting move. The Wizards referred to Howard's injury as "minor" and Howard himself believed it was sustained from "flying on cramped planes during the offseason". He finished with 20 points, shot 7-of-8 from the field, 6-of-8 from the foul line. The procedure was performed by Dr. Robert Watkins in Marina Del Rey, CA.

The Wizards signed Howard to a two-year deal last summer.

April 18, 2019: Howard opted into his $5.6 million player option for the upcoming season.
