The Boston Celtics continue to build their squad for the upcoming season with their most recent trade: Kris Dunn, Carsen Edwards, and a 2026 second-round pick for Memphis forward Juancho Hernangomez, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
The forward was a first-round pick of the 2016 NBA draft, where he began his career with the Nuggets. After four years with Denver’s organization, they traded Hernangomez to the Timberwolves. His time with them was short-lived after the front office blocked his decision to play in the 2021 Olympics due to a shoulder injury.
Hernangomez was traded to the Grizzlies last month with teammate Jarrett Culver for Patrick Beverly, but the Spain national team member has once again confirmed that he was traded for the second time this off-season.

The 6-foot-9 power forward looks to help bring home a title to Boston with his career 3.5 rebounds per game and a 43 FG%. The 25-year-old has the ability to shoot the ball, with a .327 FG% from beyond the arc.
