The Washington Wizards are trading Dwight Howard to the Memphis Grizzlies for CJ Miles, league sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Grizzlies will waive Howard, according to a league source. It is possible there is no longer a marketplace of teams interested in signing the former All-NBA center.

The deal will save Memphis $3.1 million in salary-cap space.

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

Miles, 32, averaged 9.3 points in 22.6 minutes per game for the Grizzlies, which acquired the wing in February as part of the trade that sent Marc Gasol to the Toronto Raptors.
