Apparently, free agent power forward Juancho Hernangomez is ready to hustle in Toronto.
After all, the Raptors have agreed to a one-year contract with Hernangomez, according to Doug Smith of The Record.
Hernangomez, 26, is 6-foot-9 and spent last season with the Celtics, Spurs and Jazz, appearing in 40 games overall. Perhaps his most notable achievement was co-starring with Adam Sandler in the Netflix basketball movie, Hustle.
Hernangomez was originally selected by the Nuggets with the No. 15 overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft. He has also spent time with the Timberwolves, averaging career-highs of 12.9 points and 7.3 rebounds in 2020-21.
“He’ll join Dalano Banton, Justin Champagnie, D.J. Wilson and Armoni Brooks in a battle for a maximum two spots on the opening night roster,” Smith wrote.
The Raptors’ offseason roster now stands at the maximum of 20.
