I’ve been told that getting a big man who can shoot is one of the things the Knicks hope to do in the offseason. I don’t know if that means they are only looking for that player in free agency, or if they would look to draft a shooting big with one of their three draft picks. I believe they want to improve their spacing and have heard the two players you named above mentioned – RJ Barrett and Mitchell Robinson. My opinion is that Danilo Gallinari will be considered. I haven’t heard anything on Davis Bertans, which doesn’t necessarily mean the Knicks don’t have interest in him. New York would need to offer Bertans a significant contract to pry him in free agency. The Wizards have Bertans’ Bird Rights and can exceed the cap to re-sign him at any amount up to his max salary.

I've been told that getting a big man who can shoot is one of the things the Knicks hope to do in the offseason. I don't know if that means they are only looking for that player in free agency, or if they would look to draft a shooting big with one of their three draft picks. I believe they want to improve their spacing and have heard the two players you named above mentioned - RJ Barrett and Mitchell Robinson. My opinion is that Danilo Gallinari will be considered.

If the Knicks decide to look for a forward via free agency who can shoot, Danilo Gallinari, Carmelo Anthony and Christian Wood are potential options. Some members of the Knicks front office were enamored with Wood over the course of the season. Regarding Anthony, prior to free agency last summer, the Knicks strongly considered signing the ex-Knick if they were able to land two other stars. They missed out on the stars in free agency, which took Anthony out of their plans. Rose, the current team president, was Anthony's agent. The two remain close. Worth pointing out: the Knicks being open to looking for a big who can shoot doesn't necessarily reflect a desire to move on from Randle.
Oklahoma City – If the Thunder entertain ideas of keeping Danilo Gallinari at a price point in the $20-25 million range, a lower tax line makes it a lot harder. Not impossible, but harder. One presumes they’d like to use their full mid-level on a younger wing and that they also would wish to keep Nerlens Noel; doing all three would push them well into the tax and invoke a punishing repeater penalty.
Oklahoma City Thunder forward Danilo Gallinari will be a free agent after this offseason and although he doesn’t know what the future holds for him in the NBA, he wishes to end his career in Italy with Olimpia Milano. In an interview with the Italian radio station Radio 1 Rai, Gallinari mentioned: “It would be great to play a couple of seasons at a high level in the EuroLeague and win with that team. I’d like to finish my career in this way.”
With their eyes set on 2021 maximum cap space, they are unlikely to offer free-agent targets more than a one-year deal. One player they can target with all their cap space is Danilo Gallinari, whom they pursued in February. $26.5 million is close to the maximum amount Gallinari can receive in a contract extension. If they can’t sign any of their targets, they could operate over the cap to re-sign free agents like Goran Dragic and Jae Crowder and also have the mid-level exception to use.
Despite failing to acquire Gallinari at the deadline, Miami remains a potential destination for the Italian sharpshooter in free agency because the Heat created additional cap space by moving Johnson, Justise Winslow and Dion Waiters.
Another team that could be a potential suitor for Gallinari is the New York Knicks with CAA's Leon Rose expected to take over as team president. After trading Marcus Morris Sr. for Maurice Harkless and draft pick compensation, the Knicks have plenty of cap space to use this summer. Rose and Gallinari's agent, Michael Tellem of CAA Sports, have worked closely together during their time at the agency.

In an interview with Il Foglio, il Gallo said that he will not chase money in the next free agency but he will privilege NBA title contenders. “Next summer, when I will become free agent, I will privilege a team that can fight for the NB Finals. I won’t chase money, but the chance to play for the title” Gallinari said. “NBA taught me to be a more selfish player on the court but I have not really succedded yet”.
The Nuggets had contract negotiations with Gallinari — before and after they agreed to contract terms with free-agent forward Paul Millsap on Sunday, according to an NBA source — but were unable to strike a deal.
A three-team sign-and-trade deal that will send free-agent forward Danilo Gallinari to the LA Clippers on a three-year, $65 million contract has been agreed to in principle, according to league sources. The Atlanta Hawks will receive Jamal Crawford, Diamond Stone, a 2018 first-round pick and cash from the Clippers. For sending Gallinari to LA, Denver will receive Atlanta's 2019 second-round pick via Washington.
Adrian Wojnarowski: There is a strong belief among executives involved in three-way Danilo Gallinari sign-and-trade that a formal deal will be reached soon.
Adrian Wojnarowski: Sources: Clippers will likely part with first-round pick obtained via Houston in Paul trade. That would go to Atlanta in current framework.
Sam Amick: In this deal, which is nearing its finish, Gallinari would likely land starting salary of $20 million in first year. Hawks would get a 1st.
Bill Oram: Told that Danilo Gallinari to the Clippers deal is close to happening. As @Adrian Wojnarowski noted, would need to be a sign and trade.
Sam Amick: George Hill is still an option for Denver as well, as the Nuggets are trying to clear space that would help w/ Hill/Danilo Gallinari et al
Brad Turner: Clippers meeting with Danilo Gallinari "went well" today, per source. Clippers have just $8.4 million to offer. Gallinari opted out of $16.1 million deal for next season with Denver.
While some of the Clippers’ top targets came off the board early in free agency, the franchise has remained committed to pursuing Denver forward Danilo Gallinari, although such a deal could require finding a third team to facilitate a sign-and-trade.
Clippers’ executives spoke to the 28-year-old Gallinari on Sunday and tried to sell him on a revamped lineup that includes the re-signed Blake Griffin and newly acquired point guard Patrick Beverley. It’s unclear how much Gallinari, who made $15.5 million last season, is looking for in his next contract, but it’s certainly more than the $8.4 million mid-level exception the Clippers could offer.
Sam Amick: With Suns pulling out of Paul Millsap pursuit, I'm told Denver meets w/ him tonight in Atl. Gallinari still very much in play for Nugs too.
Denver has reached out to George Hill since the free agency period started but the Knicks have not yet, per league sources. Denver has serious interest in Hill but would need to create cap space to sign the point guard. The club can do that by letting Danilo Gallinari walk in free agency.
Bill Oram: Expect Clippers to now turn attention to Danilo Gallinari and Andre Iguodala. Hard to see MLE getting it done, but can always clear space.
But expect Gallinari to garner a Plan A-type price tag. According to NBA front-office executives, when free agency hits at the crack of Saturday morning, Gallinari will be seeking something in the range of a nine-figure payday over four years. “From what we understand, he is looking for something similar to Parsons, a Chandler Parsons-type contract” one GM told Sporting News last week. “There is a lot of risk there, but that’s where the market is. Get past those first few free agents, and he is going to be next in line pretty quick.”
Danilo Gallinari is ready for the upcoming free agency. The Italian forward opted out of his contract with the Nuggets to test free agency. But his goal is to re-sign with Denver. “Free agency is something new to me” Gallinari told La Gazzetta dello Sport. “I will have a lot of meetings and I am curious to see what the teams are going to offer me” the forward said. “My goal is to remain in Denver. And I will have with the Nuggets one of the first meetings. They have the priority, I want to talk to them and listen to their offer. Nuggets are my first option”.
Gallinari spoke with Premium Sport about his future. Il Gallo opted out of his contract with the Nuggets to become free agent from July 1. “Nuggets are not my first choice but they are exactly at the same level of the other teams. Denver’s advantage is that they can offer me a five-year contract while other franchises can offer me a four-year deal. Nuggets are at the same level of the others” Gallinari said.
Tim Connelly on what role forward Danilo Gallinari‘s free agency will play in any draft decisions: “Very little. We’re not in the place now were we can draft specific to need. Whoever we draft, whether it be No. 13 or we move up or we move down, it would be hard for them to have a significant role next season. So very little.”
Bobby Marks: Gallinari has a $22.5m cap hold when FA begins. Nuggets have $5.2m in room with the flexibility (cap holds/Mike Miller) to create more.
Il Gallo has a $16.1 million player option for next season that he is not expected to pick. Gallinari will opt out of his contract to test free agency but his goal is to sign a new deal with the Nuggets. "The relationship between me, the city and the organization is great. This is the reason why I would love to reach an agreement to remain in Denver. I love it here. And I would love to remain with the Nuggets" Gallinari said.
Gallinari said Thursday that he’ll take some down time before tackling choices pertaining to his NBA future. “It’s not time right now to make the decision,” he said. “Right now it’s time to digest the fact that we were not able to accomplish the goal that I had and we had at the beginning of the season. After that, it’s time to go on vacation a little bit, rest the body — and after that I’m going to make a decision.”
His familiarity with the area and the organization will carry weight when he decides what to do, he said. “As you guys know, it’s tough for me to leave Denver,” Gallinari said. “It’s my city. I love the city. I have a house here. After my career is over, Denver is going to be my city. It’s very tough for me to leave, so we’ll see.”
Will that leave the Nuggets with enough financial flexibility to match what other teams in need of a high-scoring forward would be willing to pay for Gallinari? “The market will dictate a ton of that,” Nuggets manager Tim Connelly said. “But, certainly, Gallo and the organization have made no secret about how much they enjoy each other.”
Meanwhile, the Nuggets will take a wait-and-see approach with forward Danilo Gallinari. The veteran can opt out of the final year of his contract and test the market as an unrestricted free agent this summer. At that time, the Nuggets will be one of the teams in the mix for his services. “I think it’s no secret we really value Gallo, both as a player and as a person,” Connelly said. “So, with free agency, if he does choose to opt out there’s a lot of unknowns. How does the market develop? What do the various teams look like that are chasing him? What does he want in terms of contract and years; all of those things will certainly play a role. It would be premature of me to guess. He’s a guy that we value, he’s had a great year.”

Grant’s managed to make the transition to first option without a corresponding spike in turnover rate remarkably well. Grant’s usage rate of 26.7 percent is up nearly 50 percent over last year’s 18 percent but his turnover rate has actually declined, coming in at a remarkably low 6.8 percent. Grant’s had only one game all season with more than three turnovers and none with more than four. “The usage factor that he has and the amount of energy it takes to be that guy,” Casey said of the challenge Grant faces. “He’s finding that out. This is a process for him also to be that guy. He’s doing an excellent job of it.”
It remains to be seen how Thibodeau will use Ntilikina after being eased back in, but first the French combo guard had to worry about getting his conditioning back. “There was a progression to his comeback,” Thibodeau said. “He’s gotten some contact on this trip. We’ve had an opportunity to get some practices in. Even in situations in which we can get work in three-on-three with some of the guys that haven’t played big minutes, we try to take advantage of that as well. So he has gotten some contact, but conditioning-wise, probably not quite ready yet.”
Still, it was a bit jarring in this specific instance to hear what he had to say about the Jazz, if only because it’s been probably since the last century that we’ve heard Utah and the proceeding words linked in the same sentence. “Utah is a veteran team,” Kerr said. “They are trying to win a championship right now, and I think they are capable of doing so. You know, they are where we were three or four years ago.”
Panini America, the official trading card partner of the NBA and NBPA announced an extension of its partnership with Morant. Panini is the exclusive home for the Morant’s autographed trading cards and memorabilia. “We started our relationship with Ja (Morant) before the draft last year and we made him one of our athletes going into his rookie season,” said Jason Howarth, Vice President of Marketing at Panini America. “Coming out of his rookie season, he just continued to thrive, we knew that he was the guy that we wanted to put a foothold around, and we decided we wanted to make him a long term exclusive athlete of Panini for trading cards and memorabilia.”
