Boston Celtics Rumor: Team Has Interest In Free Agent Forward Danilo Gallinari If They Fail To Sign Gordon Hayward
If all else fails this offseason in the hunt for Gordon Hayward what is the Boston Celtics plan?
Well according to multiple reports the team has shown interest in Danilo Gallinari. Gallinari opted out of his contract with the Denver Nuggets and could be the potential backup plan if Hayward goes elsewhere.
At this time no meeting has been set according to the Boston Herald’s Mark Murphy
Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN confirmed the interest and Jared Weiss of Celtics Blog reported that the potential price tag for the Boston Celtics to land Gallinari would be around $20 million per season.
Woj corroborates Gallinari in play for #Celtics if Hayward says no. Quotes price at $20m range which isn’t so bad.
