Danilo Gallinari

At 6-foot-10 and 225 pounds with a versatile skillset, Danilo Gallinari could come on as either a Gordon Hayward contingency on the wing or a stretch four to join him in the starting five. In any case, he’d help Utah’s floor spacing. Nearly 45 percent of Galo’s shot attempts have been from three-point range over his career.

Last season, he averaged 18.2 points and 5.2 boards per contest, hitting just under 39 percent of his 5.1 three-point attempts per game. His true shooting percentage of 62.2 was 16th best in the league last season. That mark put him in with the likes of LeBron James and Kyle Lowry.

Gallinari is more than just a jump-shooter, though. He can get to the basket and is a big-time producer at the foul line. He’s a career 86-percent shooter from the charity stripe and, over the last two years, boasts a .565 free throw rate. For comparison, James Harden’s career number is .547.

The downside with Gallinari is a disconcerting injury history coupled with defensive concerns.
