In the 2019-2020 season, the Italian played for the Oklahoma City Thunder. While Gallinari may not be a highly decorated player, he isn’t someone to totally shrug off either. He’s been underrated his entire career.
In his ten-year NBA career, Gallinari has averaged 16.2 points per game, but in the last few seasons, he has shown improvement, averaging between 19.2-19.8 points per game. Put that consistency on Golden State’s roster with his height, and you have a problem for opponents.
Gallinari has played most of his career with the Nuggets. A tall, lengthy forward, Gallinari isn’t necessarily the most athletic player, but the game that he plays is very controlled and extremely efficient.
This past season, Gallinari averaged 3.0 threes per game. On those attempts, he shot over 40%. Adding that to a backcourt of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson would result in the Dubs have the best three-point shooting team in the league.
Gallinari will command a high salary and is making over $22 million this season. However, he is aging and has yet to really have a successful postseason run, so this should be enough to bring him to the Bay.
