Danilo Gallinari, a veteran forward, has agreed to sign a 2-year deal with Boston Celtics, who are looking to defend their Eastern Conference champion title. The deal is on the table and will be signed after Danilo Gallinari has been traded to and waived by the San Antonio Spurs.
Calling Danilo Gallinari an Italian-born sharpshooter, Adrian Wojnarowski from ESPN broke the news after confirming with Michael Tellem, the agent of Danilo Gallinari.
Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted to inform that the deal is worth $13.3 million with a full guarantee and player option. The new 2-year agreement would add to his partial guarantee for 2022-2023. Danilo Gallinari is estimated to earn more than $17 million in the current season.
He was the sixth pick in 2008, and he has spent two seasons with the Atlanta Hawks with an average of 12.4 points and taking shots at 39.2% from 3-point range.
Danilo Gallinari would add to the current versatile list of shooters, including Al Horford, Robert Williams, Grant Williams, Jayson Tatum, and Luke Kornet. During the off-season, the Boston Celtics added Malcolm Brogdon, former Kia Rookie of the Year.
The Boston Celtics reached the finals for the first time since 2010. The team aims to retain the title to match Cleveland’s record set in 2018.
Power FD, a YouTuber & Founder of The DF Clan, responded to the tweet expressing how the Boston Celtics were getting everybody on the team. Followers & fans are equally surprised and excited to experience what lies ahead in the NBA betting industry.
If the Boston Celtics could retain the title, they would have done it after Cleveland did it in 2018. A confirmation from Michael Tellem has set the record straight for all the fans of the Boston Celtics. As the championship progresses, it would be worth watching how well the new agreement has paid off.
The agreement was expected to be negotiated much earlier; however, the Boston Celtics and Danilo Gallinari could only make it happen this Sunday. The veteran shooter discussed all the legal aspects, and his agent confirmed that it would be signed soon.
His records for the last four seasons show how Danilo Gallinari has made a name for himself. The 14-year-long career has stats of 38.4% from deep and a minimum of 40% of 3-pointers in the last four years of the season alone.
Benching him would be a rare option because the offseason has seen Malcolm Brogdon side with the Boston Celtics. Shooting for both, combined, compensates for the Boston Celtics’ weakness in the last three games of their NBA Finals, which they lost to the Golden State Warriors.
Jayson Tatum commented on the update calling it great for the team and adding that he was obviously sad to see Daniel leave the squad.
