    Default Danilo Gallinari

    I do not know much about him and after today's lottery draft there is a very good chance he is drafted by the Knicks as his father used to play with D'Antoni.

    Can someone give some insight as to his strength and weaknesses? Would love to know more about him

    after all the disrespect of both Bellinelli & Bargnani by their NBA coaches by wither not making them part of the offence or benching them, I wonder why another Italian player wants to go through the same ordeal?

    in few words:
    he is better then Bargnani was before the draft..
    and Bargnani was a first pick..
    so you figure it out..

    Believe me, Danilo is/will be a lot better player than Bargnani and Belinelli. He's the real deal.

    Catching Bellineli play a couple times here in the bay area, he's going to be a player. Bargnani stunk it up in the playoffs this year.

    Are you crazy? Gallinari to the Knicks? or maybe send him to Liberia and execute him? Same thing...

    I hope some multimilion russian club will take him where he will play basketball and became a good player instead of going to red cross missions and help people to rebuild poor american houses after huricane.

    You do realise how the draft works right? If he nominates for the draft it is out of his hands

    Madison Square Garden will be the likely destination.

    if and when he decides to go to NBA..
    but like we have seen it many times before if he doesn't go there right away the rights for him could be exchanged..

    I'm sure you guys have all read this by now, but it's a good anecdote:
    D'Antoni May Be Saying "Ciao" to a New Player - by Stan McNeal, May 26, 2008, Sporting News

    From the small-world department: Vittorio Gallinari, the father (and agent) of the best international player in the draft, 6-9 Italian SF Danilo Gallinari, was teammates with Mike D’Antoni for nine seasons on Olympia Milano. They shared an apartment for one year, won four Italian League championships and claimed Euroleague titles in 1987 and ‘88. Now the younger Gallinari could end up playing for D’Antoni’s Knicks, who have the sixth pick. “I am not a coach and I don’t want Mike’s job, but I think Danilo could be great for Mike’s style of play,” Vittorio Gallinari says… .

    The Grizzlies finished the season tied for the third-worst record in the league but ended up with the fifth pick in the lottery, continuing a 14-year run of never having the No. 1 pick. G.M. Chris Wallace remains positive, though. He says the draft is deep enough that he will be disappointed if he can’t find a player to step right into the rotation—Stanford C Brook Lopez would be a good fit… .

    Wallace also believes the team’s February trade of PF Pau Gasol could look like more than a salary dump by next season, thanks, coincidentally, to Gasol’s younger brother. Marc Gasol, a second-round pick last season who was sent to Memphis in the trade for his brother, has transformed from a 300-plus-pound teenager to a 7-foot physical force. Marc, 23, dominated a second-division Spanish league last winter and is ready for the NBA. Wallace says bringing in Marc Gasol will be like adding two lottery picks—if the Grizzlies can outbid European clubs for his services. The Grizzlies, who also have the Lakers’ first-round pick (28th) this year, will enter the offseason with more room under the salary cap than any team except the 76ers.

    Just a bump for this thread to confirm that the Knicks did indeed draft Gallinari as their #6 pick in the draft.

    Good luck to the kid this upcoming season.

    And just to further this bump, he was actually booed when he was drafted.

    There are two coaches that I would trust to make Gallinari a good player: Don Nelson and Mike D'Antoni. He's going to turn into a fine player.

    14 points all in the second half (5-7 for 2, 0-4 for 3, 4-4 fts), 6 rebounds and 2 assists in 30 minutes for Gallinari in his debut with Knicks at Las Vegas, won by 3. Tonight at 10 PM (Italian time) he'll play again live on Sportitalia (for us).

    Is D'Antoni the reason why the NY Knicks drafted Gallinari in the first place? Hoopsworld called in the "Italian connection"

    No. D'Antoni didn't even know him well (as player)...

    Walsh and the Knicks scouts are the reason.

    Yeah, Gallinari would've been drafted high for any coach. I'm sure the D'Antoni-Gallinari Senior connection didn't hurt, but a lot of reporters at the time said Gallinari could've been selected by any of the teams in the 3 to 8 draft range.

    I'm looking forward to watching him play. Let's just hope the Knicks get rid of Marbury and/or Randolph before the season starts. Heck, they should also consider trading Jeffries and Richardson. That would make room for Wilson Chandler and Gallinari.

    ITA/USA - Back problems force Gallinari to play waiting game with Knicks


    NEW YORK (NBA) - Danilo Gallinari's ailing back prevented him from playing for Italy in this summer's EuroBasket 2009 qualifying campaign and it has also kept him off the court for the New York Knicks in their pre-season games

    New Knicks boss Mike D'Antoni, an assistant coach with Team USA's Olympic gold-medal winning team this summer in China, admits he's in no rush to have Gallinari in action for fear of aggravating the 20-year-old's problem.

    "He's definitely behind. He's never played in the NBA," D'Antoni said in the New York Daily News, before offering this lighthearted comment.


    "He's still getting used to eating hamburgers instead of pasta."

    D'Antoni is excited about having the former Armani Jeans Milano star with the team but he and everyone else will have to bide their time before Gallinari shows what he can do on the court.

    "It's going to be awhile," D'Antoni said. "You have to have patience with it. We're not going to push it too much but at the same time, we'd like to see some progress and have him out there.

    "He knows how to play. We just have to get him adapted to the NBA and the American way of life. And how tough the NBA is. The rest is going to be up to him."


    Gallinari was picked sixth overall in this summer's draft and is anxious to show Knicks fans that he was worthy of such a high selection.

    "I think I will have the time to play and show something," Gallinari said.

    "It will be a long year, a long season, I will have the time."


    Despite his 2.08m height, the versatile Gallinari isn't expected to play at power forward.

    "I see him as a small forward," D'Antoni said. "I don't think his body can take the beating right now. I see him out on the perimeter."

    Default Possible NYKnicks starter

    Curry will man the center

    Rumored that Randoplh will be benched and Lee could start

    Danilo Gallinari will provide firepower (we hope)

    Quentin Richardson / Jamal Crawford

    Chris Duhon / Marbury (On some nights if he is still around)
