The Wizards gain a veteran wing shooter in Miles, who converted 36.4% of his 3-pointers after being traded from the Toronto Raptors to the Grizzlies this past season.
Howard played in just nine games for the Wizards, averaging 12.8 points and 9.2 rebounds before a back injury put him out for the remainder of the season.
One way or another, the three-time Defensive Player of the Year will be playing for his fourth team in four years.
