Juancho Hernangómez will undoubtedly take time to forget this busy summer of 2021. After staying out of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games at the last minute by decision of the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Spanish international was later transferred to the Memphis Grizzlies along with Jarrett Culver.
With the Tennessee franchise, he did not even pass the medical examination, a fact that seemed to indicate that he would change of scene again. And said and done. According to sources close to the journalist Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Grizzlies have sent Juancho to the Boston Celtics in an operation involving players Kris Dunn and Carsen Edwards, and the possibility of trading a future round of the Draft in 2026.
Happy ending for the Madrid forward who makes a stop in a historically winning franchise and who will supposedly have opportunities and minutes in the second unit of the chief technical debutant Ime Udoka.
Selected by the Denver Nuggets in 15th place in the 2016 Draft, he has NBA career averages of 5.7 points, 3.5 rebounds and 16.4 minutes of play in 257 official games (57 as a starter).
