F - ATL
Former Oklahoma City Thunder F Danilo Gallinari is finalizing a three-year, $61.5M deal with the Atlanta Hawks.
This is a big addition for the Hawks, who will add the veteran swingman to a very young, talented roster centered around Trae Young and John Collins. Gallinari likely slides into the 3 or 4 spot in the starting lineup this season. He averaged 18.7 points and 5.2 rebounds per game last season for the Thunder.
According to Matt Babcock on Twitter, the Thunder and Mavericks are discussing a trade that would send Danilo Gallinari to Dallas.
The Thunder would reportedly receive the No.18 pick in Wednesday's draft in exchange. Although this is only a rumor and far from official, Gallinari's name has certainly come up a lot in recent days when it comes to potential trades. At this point, there is a good chance that the 32-year-old vet will be in a different uniform to begin the upcoming 2020-21 season.
Danilo Gallinari recorded 29 points (9-17 FG, 2-5 3PT, 9-9 FT), three rebounds, three assists, and one block over 33 minutes of play Tuesday.
It was a strong scoring performance for Gallinari, who doesn't typically lead the Thunder offensively. This type of performance shouldn't be expected in game two Thursday.
Danilo Gallinari (ankle, rest) has been ruled out of Monday’s game against the Suns.
Gallinari and the Thunder are playing the 2nd game of a back-to-back Monday, so he and some other guys will get a maintenance day. Darius Bazley could start in his absence and should make for a decent value play today.
Danilo Gallinari scored 20 points (6-8 FG, 5-5 FT), along with two rebounds, two assists, one steal, and three three-pointers across 20 minutes in Sunday's win over the Wizards.
Today's game against the Wizards turned into a shooting drill for Gallinari as the only shots he missed were a couple of three-point attempts. Gallinari treated this game more like a scrimmage, shooting an efficient 6-8 from the field but did little else for the Thunder and DFS owners. Gallinari is a reliable source of points and three's but can't be relied upon in DFS due to his inability to contribute in other categories consistently. In 60 games this season, Gallinari averaged 19.1 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 2.0 assists in 30.1 minutes per game.
