The Sacramento Kings reportedly acquired big man Tristan Thompson from the Boston Celtics on Friday in a three-team trade that also included the Atlanta Hawks.

Boston will get point guard Kris Dunn, big man Bruno Fernando and a 2023 second-round draft pick from the Hawks, while Atlanta will get point guard Delon Wright from the Kings.

Thompson, 30, averaged 7.6 points and 8.1 rebounds in 54 games (43 starts) last season in his only season with the Celtics. He spent his first nine seasons with the Cleveland Cavaliers and has career averages of 9.3 points and 8.7 rebounds in 673 games (472 starts).

Dunn, 27, played just four games for the Hawks last season due to an ankle injury. He has career averages of 8.2 points, 4.1 assists and 3.3 rebounds in 231 games (126 starts) over five seasons with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Chicago Bulls and Hawks.

Fernando, 22, averaged 1.5 points and 2.4 rebounds in 33 games off the bench last season in his second NBA season.

The 29-year-old Wright was split last season between the Detroit Pistons and the Kings and averaged 10.2 points, 4.4 assists and 4.3 rebounds in 63 games (39 starts). He has career highs of 7.8 points, 3.3 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 334 games (62 starts) over six seasons with five teams.
