Celtics trading Tristan Thompson to Kings in three-team deal that also involves Hawks, per report

Article Summary:

In a three-team deal, the Celtics will send Tristan Thompson to the Sacramento Kings, the Kings will send Delon Wright to the Atlanta Hawks, and the Hawks will send Kris Dunn, Bruno Fernando and a 2023 second-round pick to the Celtics, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Thompson signed with the Celtics last season and was expected to provide the size, defense and toughness around the basket that the team was missing.

Wright barely played for the Kings last season, so losing him doesn’t mean much to them. That’s not super exciting, but clearing out some room under the luxury tax makes sense, especially when Thompson didn’t figure to be a big part of the rotation next season.

With Walker gone, Marcus Smart and Payton Pritchard are the only point guards on the roster that saw meaningful minutes last season.
