Panathinaikos has made a noteworthy acquisition by officially signing 27-year-old Spanish power forward, Juancho Hernangomez, to a two-year contract. The move solidifies the team’s frontcourt and adds valuable experience and versatility to their roster.
Hernangomez’s basketball journey began when he signed his first professional contract with CB Estudiantes in 2012. Over the years, he has made significant strides in the NBA, playing for various teams, including the Denver Nuggets, Minnesota Timberwolves, Boston Celtics, and Toronto Raptors.
His recent NBA stint with the Raptors was relatively brief. Hernangomez averaged 2.9 points and 2.9 rebounds in limited minutes per game last season. Throughout his NBA career, he has maintained steady averages of 5 points and 2.9 rebounds per game.
Panathinaikos is optimistic that Hernangomez’s experience, basketball IQ, and scoring ability will contribute significantly to the team’s success in both domestic and international competitions.
