Danilo Gallinari News

Danilo Gallinari    F  Nuggets

 

 

General manager Tim Connelly said the top priority is to bring back Danilo Gallinari for next season. "You never know how the market is going to progress," Connelly said. There is a lot to this story with Gallo having a $16.1 million player option, and also Connelly said the Nuggets need to add more perimeter defense around Nikola Jokic. Gallinari cleared the 60-game mark for just the second time since joining the Nuggets for a full season in 2011-12, so it makes sense for him to hit the market at age 28. Plus, Juancho Hernangomez probably deserves more minutes for a litany of reasons.

Nuggets GM Tim Connelly said that Danilo Gallinari has been a "core piece" of the Nuggets for a "very long time." "We have a fantastic relationship, so we’re always very up front and honest," Connelly said. "If he opts out we’ll figure out how we approach that. He’s a guy who really enjoys Denver. He had a career year in a bunch of different statistical categories." It's a no-brainer for Gallo to opt out of the final year of his deal to take advantage of the rising salary cap, and while Gallo has said that he would like to finish his career as a Nugget, money talks. Gallo averaged 18.2 points, 5.2 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 0.6 steals and 2.0 triples on 44.7 percent shooting this season, appearing in 63 games. He will turn 29 in August.

Coach Mike Malone said that Danilo Gallinari (rest), Kenneth Faried (back) and Jameer Nelson (calf) would not play Tuesday vs. the Mavericks or Wednesday vs. OKC. With the Nuggets eliminated from the playoffs on Sunday, coach Malone is waiving the white flag on the 2016-17 season. Will Barton (foot) has also been ruled out of Tuesday's game, so there will be plenty of frontcourt minutes available. Coach Malone told reporters that he would like to get an extended look at rookie forwards Malik Beasley and Juancho Hernangomez over the final two games of the season. Wilson Chandler and Mason Plumlee will also likely see additional minutes.

Danilo Gallinari blew up for a season-high 34 points vs. OKC on Sunday, making 12-of-20 FGs and 6-of-6 FTs with four 3-pointers, 10 rebounds, three assists and two steals. Gallo is likely to opt for unrestricted free agency this summer, so this might have been his final home game with the Nuggets. If so, he went out with some fireworks, scoring 22 points in the third quarter alone. Unfortunately for Denver, they blew a late lead to lose at home 106-105, officially eliminating them from the playoffs.

Danilo Gallinari is expected to decline his $16.1 million player option for the 2017-18 season. Italian head coach Ettore Messina said Gallo is undecided about playing for the national team this summer because free agency begins (July 1) during their training camp for Eurobasket. He was never expected to opt into his player option anyways, as he's set to see a substantial raise under the new salary cap. If Gallo moves on from Denver next season, Juancho Hernangomez could be looking at a significant bump in value.
