Sources: Kings land C’s Thompson in 3-team deal

NBA

The Boston Celtics are trading Tristan Thompson to the Atlanta Hawks for point guard Kris Dunn, forward Bruno Fernando and a 2023 second-round pick, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski,

Thompson, 30, averaged 7.6 points and 8.1 rebounds while spending time at both frontcourt positions for Boston last season.

The Celtics traded Kemba Walker to the Oklahoma City Thunder last month in order to bring back longtime Celtics big man Al Horford, creating a need at point guard while filling Thompson’s role in the frontcourt.

Dunn, 27, was signed by Atlanta last offseason to help shore up their perimeter defense however only appeared in four games after undergoing ankle surgery early last season.

Dunn is on the last year of a 2-year, $10 million deal he signed with the Hawks.
