The Boston Celtics have officially announced the trade for 6-foot-7 Spanish forward Juancho Hernangomez via press release.

The deal, which sent guards Kris Dunn and Carsen Edwards to the Memphis Grizzlies along with a future second-round pick swap, was made clearer with the revelation about the pick involved in the deal bringing the Madrid native to the Celtics. “Hernangómez, 25, holds career averages of 5.7 points on 43.0% shooting (35.1% 3-PT, 69.3% FT), 3.5 rebounds, and 16.4 minutes in 257 games (57 starts) with [the] Denver [Nuggets] and Minnesota [Timberwolves],” notes the release.

“The five-year pro was originally selected by the Nuggets with the 15th overall selection in the 2016 NBA draft.”
