Timberwolves' Juancho Hernangomez: Sent to Minnesota

The Nuggets dealt Hernangomez to the Timberwolves on Tuesday as part of a four-team, 12-player trade, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Malik Beasley and Jarred Vanderbilt will also join Hernangomez in Minnesota, and all three players should be in store for expanded roles with the lottery-bound team than what would have been possible for a playoff-contending Denver squad. Due to a slew of injuries at power forward, Hernangomez ended up seeing 28 minutes in the Nuggets' blowout win over the Trail Blazers on Tuesday, but he averaged just 3.1 points and 2.8 boards in 12.4 minutes per game over his 34 appearances with Denver in 2019-20. Since the Timberwolves play Wednesday against the Hawks, Hernangomez will most likely sit out that contest while the four teams involved in the trade wait to finalize the deal. Expect him to make his Minnesota debut Saturday versus the Clippers.
