The Boston Celtics are trading center Tristan Thompson to the Sacramento Kings in a three-team trade that includes the Atlanta Hawks, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

In turn, the Hawks will reportedly send guard Kris Dunn, power forward Bruno Fernando, and a 2023 second-round pick to the Celtics and receive combo guard Delon Wright from the Kings.

In his only season with Boston, Thompson averaged 7.6 points and 8.1 rebounds in 23.8 minutes per game across 54 contests. The 30-year-old will make $9.7 million in 2021-22, the last year of his current deal.

Dunn played in only four games for Atlanta during the 2020-21 campaign due to a troublesome ankle injury but offers significant defensive upside in the backcourt when healthy. He recently exercised a $5-million player option for next year.

The Hawks took Fernando with the 34th overall pick in the 2019 draft.

Wright, 29, averaged 10.2 points, 4.4 assists, 4.3 rebounds, and 1.6 steals per game in a 2020-21 season split between the Kings and the Detroit Pistons. He's under contract for $8.5 million for the next campaign.
