Why the Celtics would be interested in Danilo Gallinari

The Celtics are reportedly expected to sign Danilo Gallinari, who they have had high on their list of bench-scoring targets for the taxpayer midlevel exception. Brad Stevens made it clear after the season his priority was to add more scoring and playmaking to the rotations to avoid the offensive pitfalls Boston’s second unit experienced through its playoff run. Gallinari brings them reliable isolation and spot-up creation to take pressure off the team’s main stars as the bench filters in, plus he has the composure on the ball to make good reads when defensive pressure ramps up. Though Gallinari isn’t a commanding playmaker, he should help the team cut down on its turnover rate that was one of its major weaknesses last season.

Zion Williamson’s deal is worth the risk for the Pelicans

With Zion Williamson’s injury history and physical build, it’s certainly a risk to commit this much money to him over a five-year period. The Pelicans will surely include some protections in the contract to give them some flexibility if the injuries pop up again. Details on those protections will come out over time.

In the end, losing Williamson was much more of a risk for New Orleans as it enters this new era with Brandon Ingram, CJ McCollum and second-year head coach Willie Green. It’s worth the risk considering how good this team can be if everyone stays on the court.

Where the Mavericks stand after losing Jalen Brunson, adding JaVale McGee

There’s much more that may be unraveled in the coming days and weeks about Jalen Brunson’s choice. The Mavericks’ side of the story is that they never even had a chance to negotiate with Brunson, implying that he was always set on the Knicks.

Dallas did make one signing Thursday: JaVale McGee on a three-year, $20.1 million deal that includes a third-year player option. I’m…confused. But let’s back up.

Nets’ start to free agency included more than Kevin Durant’s trade request

While Kevin Durant’s trade request dominated the conversation, Brooklyn did make a few other moves on Thursday, re-signing Nic Claxton and Patty Mills and trading for the Jazz’s Royce O’Neale.

It makes for a great supporting cast of players on a championship team, which seems to indicate the Nets’ next move whenever they trade their star players.

Bulls sign Andre Drummond, but what about Zach LaVine’s extension?

Bulls star Zach LaVine was one of the biggest names who did not reach a new deal on the first day of the free-agency negotiating period.

Chicago filled a need for size and rebounding by signing Andre Drummond on Thursday, but LaVine remains the priority of the Bulls’ offseason entering Friday, Darnell Mayberry writes.
