Danilo Gallinari has decided to take his talents up to New England for the next couple of years. 

Per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Gallinari has signed a two-year $13.3 million contract with the Boston Celtics. 

The deal is fully guaranteed and it includes a player option.

Gallinari was waived by the San Antonio Spurs on Friday after he was acquired in the Dejounte Murray trade last month. 

Before he was traded to the Spurs, he was on the Atlanta Hawks and played for them for two seasons. He finished the 2021-22 season averaging 11 points, four rebounds, and one assist per game while shooting 43% from the floor.

He's also spent time with the Oklahoma City Thunder, Los Angeles Clippers, Denver Nuggets, and New York Knicks during his NBA career.

Gallinari has been known to be a strong three-point shooter during his time in the league. This past season, he shot 38% from deep and for his career, he's right around that same number (38.2%). 

Having that threat to the outside could be a game-changer for the Celtics as they look to keep contending next season and beyond.
