This Brad Stevens guy might actually know what he’s doing. Gallo at $6M, Brogdon for a 1st. Losing no core pieces while adding two good players that address team needs is a huge win for the Celtics. – 3:18 PM

Danilo Gallinari has given himself a wedding gift with Celtics deal. Will marry his longtime girlfriend, sports journalist Eleanora Boi, on July 23 in Italy. – 2:26 PM

Okay, I was in the fence, but with Brogdon and Gallo now in Boston, I might lean Stevens over Giannis now pic.twitter.com/O7rfn3baTf1:52 PM

2022-23 Celtics (so far) …
Starters: Smart, Brown, Tatum, Horford, Williams III
Bench: Brogdon, White, Gallinari, Williams, Houser, Pritchard
TPE still available but, unless there’s another shoe to drop, it feels like minimum deals to fill out roster. – 1:51 PM
David Morrow @_DavidMorrow
Malcolm Brogdon/Payton Pritchard
Marcus Smart/Derrick White
Jaylen Brown/Danilo Gallinari
Jayson Tatum/Grant Williams
Robert Williams/Al Horford
With probably at least 1-2 more rotation guy(s) to come, I’d guess.
Boston isn’t going anywhere. – 1:47 PM
StatMuse @statmuse
The Celtics are STACKED:
Malcolm Brogdon
Marcus Smart
Jaylen Brown
Jayson Tatum
Robert Williams
Al Horford
Derrick White

Chris Mannix @SIChrisMannix
Brad Stevens continues to aggressively add talent to the Celtics. The Celtics now have incredible depth in the backcourt — the 6’5″ Brogdon can play (and defend) multiple positions — and if Gallinari signs on will go ten-deep with high level players. – 1:44 PM
Marc Stein @TheSteinLine
The Celtics are clearly determined to get back to the NBA Finals AND Brad Stevens continues to impress in his fledging career as an NBA executive as Boston acquires Malcolm Brogdon and closes in on Danilo Gallinari.

Celtics add Brogdon and Gallo to a team that made the Finals – without sacrificing a single rotation player.
Boston gonna be real tough to beat next season. – 1:41 PM
Jay King @ByJayKing
With Malcolm Brogdon and Danilo Gallinari, the Celtics will have all sorts of depth. – 1:40 PM

I’m not entirely sure how I feel about Gallo to the Celtics, but 41% on 5.5 3PA over the last 4 years is some good shooting off the bench. He’s 33 but feels like he’s been around forever. – 11:56 AM

Well, if Danilo Gallinari has chosen the Celtics, who’s left in free-agency for #Bulls
There’s not much still on the board. Take a chance on T.J. Warren? One of the Martin twins? Re-sign Derrick Jones Jr? – 11:44 AM
Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops
Bulls have a swing-and-miss on Gallo – who chose the Boston Celtics. – 11:43 AM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Back when I was on the @RealGM forums all day long, I probably pitched a thousand ideas to get Danilo Gallinari to the Celtics.
That was about 6-7 years ago though. But he can still score, so that helps the bench.
And he can longer be a Celtics-killer if he’s on the Celtics! – 11:42 AM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
With Otto Porter Jr. off the board, Heat’s remaining forward options in free agency include T.J. Warren and Danilo Gallinari, who is expected to be waived by Spurs.
Martin twins, Cody & Caleb, also among top free-agent forward options still available.
Durant would also work. – 11:39 AM
Adam Himmelsbach @AdamHimmelsbach
Can confirm that Danilo Gallinari plans to sign with the Celtics after clearing waivers, as @Adrian Wojnarowski said. – 11:39 AM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Danilo Gallinari would very likely come to Boston via the Taxpayer MLE for $6.5M.
He is getting a large sum from the Spurs via upping his guarantee in the trade from the Hawks. Could make him a potential minimum candidate, but I doubt it goes that way. – 11:37 AM
Adrian Wojnarowski @wojespn
Once the San Antonio Spurs finalize the expected release on forward Danilo Gallinari, his preference is to join the Boston Celtics upon clearing waivers, sources tell ESPN. – 11:35 AM
Barry Jackson @flasportsbuzz
Apparently, power forwards are easier to get through customs. Toronto has 4 4s, with Siakam, Boucher, Thaddeus Young and Otto Porter Jr just now. Heat’s PF options – if they don’t get Durant – are diminishing, with TJ Warren (& soon) Gallinari among those available in free agency – 11:31 AM
Rob Schaefer @rob_schaef
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

James Harden
Zach LaVine

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
Tom Westerholm @Tom_NBA
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
Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops
Danilo Gallinari decision could be coming soon. Bulls have offered most of the MLE. #continuity6:48 PM
Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
Gallo might run like a bundle of lumber with feet, but he can really score it. – 6:29 PM
Barry Jackson @flasportsbuzz
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
Tom Orsborn @tom_orsborn
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.

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. – 3:35 PM

More on this storyline

The Celtics are on verge of making their first big splash of the offseason. League sources confirmed to MassLive Friday that Danilo Gallinari is set to sign with the Celtics once he clears waivers this week. Boston has the ability to offer Gallinari their taxpayer mid-level exception worth $6.5 million. A league source tell MassLive that Gallinari is expected to sign a two-year deal with a player option in year two. Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com was first to report Gallinari’s commitment to Boston. -via Booth Newspapers / July 1, 2022
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. -via Twitter @JakeLFischer / June 30, 2022
