Danilo Gallinari choosing between Celtics, Bulls?

- by

Jake Fischer: Sounds like Danilo Gallinari will be deciding between Chicago and Boston for his next team. The Bulls have much of the full MLE to offer, roughly $8M AAV and a hair more than the Celtics. But Boston appears to be Gallo’s preferred landing spot.

Drummond is fine as a backup center. Was productive in BKN at end of last season. Should be better than any of Bulls’ prior options
Rim protection and upside aren’t there like some of other linked names. But price keeps rest of MLE open to pursue shooting upgrade (Gallo?) – 10:52 PM
KC Johnson @KCJHoop
Bulls, Andre Drummond progressing towards deal, source confirms, which @Shams Charania had 1st.
Reported this AM that Drummond and Gallinari would be targets and that remains case with Bulls one of Gallinari’s finalists, per source. – 10:18 PM

New: The Celtics are reportedly a finalist in the Danilo Gallinari sweepstakes. A look at the potential factors in play as he considers Bulls and Celtics: masslive.com/celtics/2022/0…7:18 PM

Guessing Gallo’s decision might come down to opportunity more than money. He has earned $175 million in his career — tough to imagine the difference between Chicago’s $8 million and Boston’s $6.4 million taxpayer MLE will be a deciding factor. – 6:51 PM

Danilo Gallinari decision could be coming soon. Bulls have offered most of the MLE. #continuity6:48 PM

Gallo might run like a bundle of lumber with feet, but he can really score it. – 6:29 PM

Add Gallinari to the handful of Heat PF options if Tucker leaves as expected; he’s expected to be bought out by Spurs. The latest from our Heat/NBA free agency live blog, with Durant news and more: miamiherald.com/sports/nba/mia…4:03 PM

Here’s the first graf of Spurs release:
The team has acquired a protected 2023 first round draft pick, two unprotected first round picks in 2025 & 2027, the rights to swap 2026 first round picks and Danilo Gallinari from Atlanta Hawks for Dejounte Murray and Jock Landale. – 3:53 PM
John Hollinger @johnhollinger
I have a $10.3 million BORD$ value on Danilo Gallinari, think he should be in play for MLE money on a one-year deal.

Danilo Gallinari @gallinari8888
It’s hard to say goodbye. We always know what we leave behind but not what we’ll find in front of us.
I leave behind good guys, special fans and two unforgettable seasons. We flew high Hawks…I’ll never forget this!
Thank you Atlanta from the bottom of my heart.
Gallo. pic.twitter.com/u9jp9jLPMW10:47 AM

Bulls expected to pursue Danilo Gallinari, can offer $7-8 million annually for two years sportando.basketball/en/bulls-expec…10:00 AM
Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops
Hearing if it was up to Mo Bamba he would be a Bull by tonight. Wanted to be a Bull on draft night ’18, and that hasn’t changed. Problem is feeling isn’t mutual at his current asking value. As reported by @KC Johnson, Danilo Gallinari is in play. – 9:38 AM

Wrote about Danilo Gallinari earlier today among my Suns MLE wing targets. He’s heading to the Spurs now, but only $4.5M of his $21.5M salary is guaranteed and he could be a FA soon if San Antonio buys him out: bit.ly/3I0WIHm7:30 PM

More on this storyline

Adrian Wojnarowski: After officially completing trade with Hawks today, the Spurs are expected to waive F Danilo Gallinari, sources tell ESPN. As a free agent, Gallinari will be able to choose among contenders in both conferences. -via Twitter @wojespn / June 30, 2022
