The Spanish forward Juancho Hernangómez has been transferred to Minnesota Timberwolves, his second NBA franchise after wearing the Denver Nuggets jersey for three and a half seasons, after a complex transfer that has involved four teams and a total of 12 players.

As American media advances The athletic Y ESPN, accustomed to announce all the news about transfers in the NBA, Houston Rockets, Minnesota Timberwolves, Atlanta Hawks and Denver Nuggets have crystallized a convoluted agreement that has taken Hernangómez to the Timberwolves along with Malik Beasley and Jarred Vanderbilt, who also change Denver for Minnesota.

In this way, the panorama of the Spanish international changes radically, which goes from an aspiring ring franchise to another that occupies the penultimate position of the Western Conference after chaining 12 consecutive defeats. It will be a 'wolf' as Ricky Rubio already was for several years and his personal goal will be to increase his prominence within a season with few opportunities so far.
