Sources: Clippers, Nuggets working on sign-and-trade to send Gallinari to LA on 3-year, M deal, but sides still working thru details.
Or, if Gallinari gets worn down by the extra rounds of physical play, the give-back could be the loss of offense for a team that desperately needs perimeter scoring.
"I look forward to any challenge, to be honest," he said.
Next, all Danilo Gallinari had to do was replace Carmelo Anthony in Denver, on the marquee and at small forward, as the biggest return for the Nuggets in the blockbuster 'Melo trade.
Then two surgeries on his left knee, one in 2013 and the other in 2014, that cost him nearly 19 months total, all followed by surgery on the right knee later in 2014. It's not a full switch, with Gallinari still the starting small forward as Kenneth Faried continues to open to power forward, and we're barely a month past Gallo playing some center for Italy at Euro Basket.
He played at a very, very high level to end the year last year.
