From Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald:
Celts/Denver discussed Gallinari deal, but nothing doing as of now. Some conflicting talk from sources, but may want to keep an eye on this.— Steve Bulpett (@SteveBHoop) July 13, 2015
Hearing varying reports about Gallinari's availability. Some connected say DEN not looking to move him; others say it's open to discussion.— Steve Bulpett (@SteveBHoop) July 13, 2015
Gallinari heading into last year of contract at $11.5m. Risk/reward would be good for a lot of clubs.— Steve Bulpett (@SteveBHoop) July 13, 2015
And from CBS Boston's Brian Robb:
I wrote about Gallinari as a offseason trade target for the Celtics earlier this month. My thoughts at the time: pic.twitter.com/7nBEKQr8QA— Brian Robb (@CelticsHub) July 13, 2015
The 26-year-old Gallinari was taken with the sixth overall pick in the draft by the Knicks in 2008. He's averaged 12.4 points and 3.7 rebounds per game in his career with New York and Denver.
Bulpett's article says the Celtics and Nuggets had discussions which did not go anywhere before the draft, but that "multiple sources told the Herald that talks could be revived and that the situation bears watching."
