Former Cavs, Celtics center Tristan Thompson traded twice in 24 hours

By , WEEI 93.7

The Celtics have made a trade a day after the NBA Draft.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Celtics have traded Tristan Thompson to the Hawks in exchange for Kris Dunn, Bruno Fernando and a 2023 second-round pick.

Dunn played in college at Providence and has bounced around the league in his five seasons in the NBA. Last year with the Hawks, he played in just four games due to right ankle surgery. His best season came in 2017-18 when he averaged 13.4 points per game with the Bulls.

He was the No. 5 overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft.

Fernando, 20, averaged 1.5 points per game last season. Thompson was traded due to the number of players the Celtics have in the front court.

[UPDATE]: Wojnarowski adds the Kings are now involved and Thompson will end up in Sacramento with guard Delon Wright going to Atlanta.
