In a radio interview on Altitude 950, Nuggets GM Tim Connelly said “that’s our goal,” in reference to working out a contract with Danilo Gallinari.
Gallinari is going to test the market this offseason and should have plenty of big money offers headed his way. Gallo was a top-50 player this season on a per game basis and missed 19 games, as is customary. We’ll see how the persistent injury concerns mess with his market, but he’s got a very desirable skillset that someone is sure to pay for. Nikola Jokic’s ascension probably demands that the offense runs through him so we’ll see if that jives with Gallinari’s personal goals as well as those of Denver’s other skill players next season.
