2. Danilo Gallinari

The 35-year-old veteran is just rounding into form after missing the entire 2022-23 season recovering from a torn ACL. He started the season on the Wizards before being traded to Detroit. In his six games with the Pistons, Gallo averaged 8.7 points, 2.0 assists, and 2.3 rebounds per game while shooting 54.5 percent from the field and 58.3 percent on his threes.

The 6’10 forward is a professional scorer who has already been bought out. He will draw interest from several contenders. Gallinari can no longer play long stretches, but he will provide offensive punch in a 15 to 25-minute per-game role. The 35-year-old is best coming off the bench at this stage and will need to be rested as he continues to work his way back.

He will not shoot over 50 percent from three, but he is a career 38.2 percent. Gallo can get buckets from anywhere on the floor and draws defenders. He could be a fantastic weapon to have coming off the bench when Kevin Durant needs a rest.

Most of the options available are offense-first players. The Suns have three elite scorers, but must sure up their defense, which could make this guard standout among the targets.
