Juan Alberto "Juancho" Hernangómez Geuer (born September 28, 1995) is a Spanish professional basketball player for the Utah Jazz of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He previously played for Estudiantes of the Liga ACB, and has represented the senior Spain national team.
Hernangómez began playing competitive basketball in 2007, with the youth teams of CB Las Rozas. He joined a youth squad of Real Madrid and played with the team until moving to Club Baloncesto Majadahonda for the following years.
CB Estudiantes (2012–2016)
In 2012, Hernangómez signed his first professional contract with CB Estudiantes and competed with their second team until 2014, when he was promoted to the main team. In 2015–16, Hernangómez averaged 9.7 points and 5.7 rebounds in 34 games. He was subsequently named the recipient of the ACB Best Young Player Award.
Denver Nuggets (2016–2020)
On April 26, 2016, Hernangómez was named in the international early entry candidates list for the 2016 NBA draft. He was selected by the Denver Nuggets with the 15th overall pick. On August 9, 2016, he signed his rookie scale contract with the Nuggets. On January 4, 2017, he was assigned to the Sioux Falls Skyforce of the NBA Development League, pursuant to the flexible assignment rule. He was recalled by the Nuggets three days later after appearing in one game for the Skyforce. On February 13, 2017, he scored a season-high 27 points to go with a season-best 10 rebounds in a 132–110 win over the Golden State Warriors. He hit six three-pointers against the Warriors to help the Nuggets tie an NBA record with 24 three-pointers. Early in the 2017–18 season, Hernangomez was diagnosed with mononucleosis, and as a result, he only played in 25 games during his sophomore campaign.
Minnesota Timberwolves (2020–2021)
He re-signed with the Timberwolves on a three year deal on November 27, 2020. The 2020-21 season was a tumultuous one for Hernangómez as he showed up to training camp out of shape, contracted COVID-19, and lost his spot in the starting lineup, capped off by a falling out with the Timberwolves front office over their decision to disallow him from participating in the 2021 Olympics after suffering a shoulder injury during an exhibition game.
Boston Celtics (2021–2022)
On August 25, 2021, Hernangómez and Jarrett Culver were traded to the Memphis Grizzlies in exchange for Patrick Beverley and on September 15, he was traded to the Boston Celtics in exchange for Kris Dunn, Carsen Edwards and the right for a 2026 second-round pick swap.
San Antonio Spurs (2022)
Utah Jazz (2022–present)
National team career

Hernangómez's style of play has drawn comparisons to NBA players Víctor Claver and Jonas Jerebko. He has been praised for his speed, athleticism, and approximately 7 ft (2.13 m) wingspan. The duo of him and his brother, Willy, have also been compared to Spanish NBA stars Marc and Pau Gasol.
Hernangómez's immediate family is made up of former or current basketball players. His older brother Willy currently plays for the New Orleans Pelicans, having previously played for Real Madrid. His mother Margarita Geuer Draeger was an international basketball player, winning a European championship with Spain in 1993. His father also played for Real Madrid and Estudiantes and his younger sister currently plays for Estudiantes' youth team.
