Spending power update w/ salary cap adjustments:

NYK: $35.1M (if they waive Taj Gibson and keep Mitchell Robinson’s cap hold)
IND: $28M
ORL: $27.8M
OKC: $23.4M (expires today) pic.twitter.com/OAWrSnBbbk11:11 AM

Danilo Gallinari @gallinari8888
It’s hard to say goodbye. We always know what we leave behind but not what we’ll find in front of us.
I leave behind good guys, special fans and two unforgettable seasons. We flew high Hawks…I’ll never forget this!
Thank you Atlanta from the bottom of my heart.

Bulls expected to pursue Danilo Gallinari, can offer $7-8 million annually for two years sportando.basketball/en/bulls-expec…10:00 AM

Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops
Hearing if it was up to Mo Bamba he would be a Bull by tonight. Wanted to be a Bull on draft night ’18, and that hasn’t changed. Problem is feeling isn’t mutual at his current asking value. As reported by @KC Johnson, Danilo Gallinari is in play. – 9:38 AM

Wrote about Danilo Gallinari earlier today among my Suns MLE wing targets. He’s heading to the Spurs now, but only $4.5M of his $21.5M salary is guaranteed and he could be a FA soon if San Antonio buys him out: bit.ly/3I0WIHm7:30 PM

Peter Vecsey @PeterVecsey1
Draft picks aside, Popovich’s goal was to acquire the Hawks’ nearest player (Gallinari, 33) in age to him… – 6:29 PM

League source confirms report by @Jake Fischer that Celtics are interested in signing Danilo Gallinari if he is waived by San Antonio. – 5:51 PM

Mark Deeks @MarkDeeksNBA
This is also why the Hawks got Gallinari in the first place, despite them not having any sizeable hole for him, his high price point and his further cluttering of the roster. There was always an element of “we’ll figure it out later” to that deal. Welp, they figured it out later. – 5:44 PM

More on this storyline

 

Jake Fischer: Not sure if this has been reported yet, but I’m told Danilo Gallinari’s guarantee date has only been officially moved back to July 8, which would suggest Atlanta is still looking to expand the Dejounte Murray trade as Hawks look for further John Collins, Kevin Huerter deals. -via Twitter @JakeLFischer / June 30, 2022

The Bulls would join a list of contending teams to show interest in Danilo Gallinari should the veteran shooter be waived by the San Antonio Spurs as expected. The Spurs acquired Gallinari in Wednesday’s trade with the Atlanta Hawks centered on Dejounte Murray. If this deal were to happen, it would likely be in the neighborhood of $7-8 million annually for two years. Billy Donovan coached Gallinari in Oklahoma City. -via NBC Sports / June 30, 2022

The Heat also could have interest in Danilo Gallinari if he receives a buyout from San Antonio after being traded from Atlanta – with three-first round picks – in exchange for Dejounte Murray. -via Miami Herald / June 29, 2022
