Having played in the league for 13 seasons, the 35-year-old star has had stints with teams like the New York Knicks, Denver Nuggets, Los Angeles Clippers, and others.
This season, he has averaged 7.5 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 1.3 assists, although his career averages stand at 15.2 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 1.9 assists.
Gallinari is a seasoned athlete who will likely be on the minds of many teams in the coming days.
He brings a wealth of experience to any team and can be acquired at a relatively low cost.
However, it is important to note that he does have a history of injuries.
The Lakers, currently exploring various options, are considering Gallinari along with several other players who may potentially join the team.
Their search extends to both high-profile players like Dejounte Murray of the Atlanta Hawks, as well as lesser-known but dependable role players such as Gallinari, Dorian Finney-Smith, Royce O’Neale, and others.
Gallinari would undoubtedly bolster the Lakers’ backcourt, given his reputation as a reliable three-point shooter and his ability to play multiple positions.
Considering the interest from other teams, if the Lakers are genuinely interested in adding Gallinari to their roster, they will need to swiftly assemble an enticing offer before the trade deadline on Thursday.
