Per reports from Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic, the Phoenix Suns have shown keen interest in adding Danilo Gallinari to their roster. Gallinari, who was recently waived by the Detroit Pistons on February 8th, has been on the radar of the Suns as they seek to bolster their lineup.

During the current NBA season, Gallinari has already had stints with the Washington Wizards and the Pistons. His statistical averages stand at 7.3 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 1.3 assists per game, with shooting percentages of 45.1% from the field, 35.5% from beyond the arc, and an impressive 85.0% from the free-throw line.

At 35 years old, Gallinari brings a wealth of experience to any team he joins. Throughout his career with the New York Knicks, Denver Nuggets, Los Angeles Clippers, Oklahoma City Thunder, Atlanta Hawks, as well as the Wizards and Pistons, he has maintained career averages of 15.2 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 1.9 assists per game.

However, it’s worth noting that he has had to overcome significant injuries, including two torn left ACLs.

Gallinari’s postseason contributions have also been notable, having appeared in 48 playoff games with various teams. His career playoff averages include 13.8 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 1.4 assists per game.

Currently boasting a record of 31-22, the Phoenix Suns sit in sixth place in the Western Conference standings. Led by All-Stars Kevin Durant, Devin Booker, and Bradley Beal, the Suns have showcased an offensive prowess, ranking 12th in the NBA in points per game with an average of 117.4.

In addition to their interest in Gallinari, the Suns made another move by signing Thaddeus Young. Young, who was traded from the Toronto Raptors to the Brooklyn Nets at the NBA trade deadline, was subsequently waived by the Nets, paving the way for his signing with Phoenix.

Furthermore, the Suns made strategic acquisitions during the trade deadline, including Royce O’Neale from the Nets and David Roddy from the Memphis Grizzlies, further enhancing their roster depth.
