Denver Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari hoping that Masai Ujiri stays with team

Doug Pensinger

A decision is drawing near ...

It's nice to see Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari, who has a lot on his plate right now as he prepares for ACL surgery and a long rehabilitation, speak up for his general manager. This Tweet from Davide Chinellato, a sports reporter for the Italian La Gazzetta:

Gallo also tol the Gazzetta, on May 17th, that he would be undergoing his ACL surgery in about three weeks - that'd put the date around May 31st. We'll keep you updated on that as well.

An interesting tidbit from the Tweet is how Gallo met Ujiri when he was 15 years-old - well before Gallo was a Denver Nuggets player. Yes, Masai was an international scout around that time and that type of scouting history is part of what Ujiri a successful GM now. He has learned what he likes in players and what what he looks for. Hopefully he'll be back with the Nuggets soon ...
