The handover is a considerable qualitative change for Juancho, that being able to be in a team without any aspirations like the Grizzlies becomes part of some Celtics very competitive and what aspire to go far in the Eastern Conference. The Spanish forward will coincide there with Jaylen Brown, Romeo Langford, Aaron Nesmith, Payton Pritchard, Marcus Smart, Jayson Tatum, Grant Williams, Robert Williams y Jabari Parker.
New faces at the Celtics
Spanish will be one of the new team faces, which has also incorporated this summer Bruno Fernando (Hawks), Sam Hauser (rookie), Al Horford (Thunder), Enes Kanter (Trail Blazers), Josh Richardson (Mavericks), Dennis Schrder (Lakers). It is clear that Juancho must now earn the trust of Ime Udoka, who replaced on the bench Brad Stevens, who has become President of Operations for the Celtics after leaving Danny Ainge the post.
