Gallo is so intriguing. He’s reportedly “prepared to sign with the Hawks” when free agency opens, and I see what Travis Schlenk is so excited about. He’s always been a knockdown shooter, and he’s a terrific scorer that can make things easier for Trae Young. Gallo is actually a decent defender too, so I’m all in if Atlanta offers him a big contract.
Gallo fills a big need on the bench, with shooting and defense behind John Collins. I can’t express how excited I am for this signing!
Welcome to Atlanta, Gallo! Let’s ride!
