Free agent forward Danilo Gallinari is finalizing a three-year contract with the Atlanta Hawks, his agent told Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
The deal is reportedly worth $61 million.
Gallinari, 32, is coming off a strong season with the Oklahoma City Thunder, averaging 18.7 points and 5.2 rebounds for one of the NBAâ€™s most surprising teams.
He will now join a young Hawks nucleus that includes the likes of point guard Trae Young, power forward John Collins and swingman Deâ€™Andre Hunter, among others.
The Hawks have also been linked to free agent point guard Rajon Rondo, most recently of the Los Angeles Lakers.
Atlanta is now at a projected $26M in room.
The Knicks are now the leader in the clubhouse with $35M.
