The Hawks are sending Dwight Howard and the No. 31 overall pick in Thursday's NBA draft to Charlotte for Plumlee, shooting guard Marco Belinelli and the 41st pick, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Tuesday because the trade is not yet official.
The Scoop: Plumlee, who signed a four-year, $52 million contract last season, averaged 2.5 points and 2.1 rebounds across 10.8 minutes in 2016-17. He began last season with the Milwaukee Bucks before being dealt to Charlotte before the trade deadline.
