Netflix unveiled the first teaser of the upcoming film “Hustle” that will feature Utah Jazz forward Juancho Hernangomez.

The movie is co-produced by LeBron James and Adam Sandler, who also has the starring role. Per IMDB, it’s about “A washed-up basketball scout” who “discovers a phenomenal streetball player while in Spain and sees the prospect as his opportunity to get back into the NBA.”

Sandler plays the scout while the streetball player from Spain is the actually Spanish Hernangomez in his movie debut. Queen Latifah, Ben Foster and Robert Duvall also star in the film along with former two-time NBA champion and current TNT analyst Kenny Smith plus NBA veteran and 2019 champ Kyle Lowry.

The Philadelphia 76ers seem to be a central part of the film and there are scenes with Sixers coach Doc Rivers, Seth Curry (now a Brooklyn Net but a Sixer when the movie was shot), Matisse Thybulle and Tyrese Maxey.
