Juancho Hernangómez has been transferred, again. The Spanish forward will sign with the Boston Celtics in an agreement that sends Kris Dunn, Carsen Edwards and a second round in 2026 to the Memphis Grizzlies, a team that received Juancho two weeks ago after a transfer that saw Patrick Beverley join the Minnesota Timberwolves.
As ESPN journalist Adrian Wojnarowski has advanced, Juancho Hernangómez will not make his debut with the Memphis Grizzlies and will join the Celtics, a team that will opt for everything in the east and will have a rotation option in the Spanish forward that can contribute points from triple. In the absence of official confirmation from the franchises, Juancho has already sent a wink to his new team.

The situation of the Spanish has undergone a considerable change. After a season and a half in Minnesota, where the team has not performed at a good level and has not been able to participate in the Playoffs, the youngest of the Hernangómez ended up in a Memphis Grizzlies in the process of consolidation, with all hopes pinned on Ja Morant. Ultimately, he will play for the Boston Celtics and seek to be important to Brad Stevens’ men and regain a contender spot in the Eastern Conference.
