He played with the Knicks for two and a half seasons before being traded to the Denver Nuggets in 2011. In 2017, he was acquired by the Clippers. His nickname is Gallo, which is Italian for "rooster," but is an abbreviation of his last name.
"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," said ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.
For Johnson to report the Bulls have interest doesn’t come as a major surprise. Not only does Gallinari have prior experience with both Arturas Karnisovas (w/ Nuggets from 2011-17) and Billy Donovan (with OKC in 2019-20), but he checks a lot of the boxes the Bulls are looking for this offseason.
