Report: Celtics acquire Juancho Hernangomez from Grizzlies

Memphis will reportedly receive Kris Dunn, Carsen Edwards and a 2026 second-round pick swap.

Juancho Hernangomez is headed to the Eastern Conference after being traded from Memphis.

The Memphis Grizzlies acquired Juancho Hernangomez in a trade last month, but the 25-year-old forward is reportedly on the move again.

Memphis is dealing Hernangomez to the Boston Celtics in exchange for Kris Dunn, Carsen Edwards and a 2026 second-round pick swap, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The deal cannot be made official until September 15.

A career 35.1% shooter from long range, Hernangomez is expected to space the floor in Boston’s rotation. He spent parts of the last two seasons with the Minnesota Timberwolves before being traded in late August.

Hernangomez was reportedly upset after Minnesota barred him from playing in the Tokyo Olympics with the Spanish national team, a decision based off a shoulder injury he suffered during an exhibition game.

Like Hernangomez, Dunn has been traded twice this offseason. He played sparingly during his lone season for the Atlanta Hawks because of knee and ankle issues. The 27-year-old guard has been effective on the defensive end when healthy.

Edwards enters his third season in the NBA after a stellar career at Purdue. He averaged 4 points in 31 games last season, including one start.
