Because Dunn was recently acquired by the Celtics in trade and can't have his salary aggregated with another player yet, this deal can't be officially completed until Sept. 15, which is still well before the start of training camp two weeks later. Hernangomez was also acquired in a recent trade, by the Grizzlies, but the same restriction doesn't apply because he is not being traded with another player.
Boston balances the roster with a stretch option in the frontcourt, while Memphis continues an unusual trend of trading one player with a guaranteed contract for two despite already having too many guarantees on its roster. Will Dunn or Edwards find a spot?
Let's break down what this trade means for both teams and explore which other players could be affected.
Celtics get: Juancho Hernangomez
Grizzlies get: Kris Dunn, Carsen Edwards, 2026 second-round pick swap
