Celtics, Heat interested in Willy Hernangomez

If anything, the Spaniard is playing less than before. With 11,8 minutes on the floor, he’s had the least time in play since he got to the NBA in 2016. With a lack of playing time, rumors about his departure from the Louisiana team are emerging. Reportedly, Hernangomez is on the radar of the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat.

Willy Hernangomez on Jonas Valanciunas: 'He's one of the best centers in the league'

Valanciunas had 16 points and 10 rebounds, Willy Hernangomez 13 for the Pelicans, who ended a season-worst four-game losing streak. “I’m super happy for JV. He’s my best friend on the team, I would say. Great person,” Hernangomez said of the Lithuanian big man. “He’s helping me on and off the court. Helping me to get better as well. He’s one of the best centers in the league.
“We have a lot of depth,” Williamson said. “I say it a lot, and I don’t just see it because they are my teammates, I say it because I mean it. This is a special team. People forget that Willy (Hernangomez) won MVP in the Euro League. That is not an easy accomplishment because the rules are harder over there than in the NBA. “Me and Willy (Hernangomez) talk all the time and I tell him how I wish he could play more. He understands the name of the game and that we have a deep team. Whenever his number is called, he always steps up.”
