Celtics Sign Veteran Sharpshooter

The Boston Celtics continue to load up for another big run next season, as they'll be adding another sharpshooter to the arsenal, with the signing of 13-year veteran Danilo Gallinari to a two-year deal for the mid-level exception ($13M total).

The soon-to-be-34-year-old Gallinari has a career 38% mark from three-point range, but since 2019, it's actually 40.8%. And just imagine the looks he'll get on a team where defenses need to deal with Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown.

Overall, Gallo's scoring has dropped a tad over the last few years, at 11.7 points per game last year, along with 4.7 rebounds for the Atlanta Hawks. Nevertheless, he should be able to thrive off the Celtics' bench.

After also trading for Malcolm Brogdon today, NBA observers are more than impressed with what the Celtics have done in an attempt to maintain their hold on the Eastern Conference.
