Danilo Gallinari reportedly favors signing with Boston
Sounds like Danilo Gallinari will be deciding between Chicago and Boston for his next team. The Bulls have much of the full MLE to offer, roughly $8M AAV and a hair more than the Celtics. But Boston appears to be Gallo's preferred landing spot.
Just have this fear the Celtics will sign him, but since he can't play defense, especially in Udoka's everyone switches on everyone & no double teaming defense, Gallo will just sit next to Theis & Pritchard in the Celtics DNP section of their bench come the playoffs https://t.co/iBGlqlG8z2
Kind of redundant, but the point is that Udoka's defesnive system is tough to crack unless you're a good defender. Just being adequate might keep you on the bench. And if you are a deficiency, well you better make every shot you shoot while you're on the court if you don't want a quick hook.
Maybe Udoka and Stevens have discussed tweaking the system a bit to allow for more double teams? Who knows? But at this point, I really only care about what a player can do for the Celtics in the playoffs. Anyone can play the regular season bench minutes. The playoffs are what matters.
