Danilo Gallinari, how did the Washington Wizards adventure go?

This afternoon the Washington Wizards traded Danilo Gallinari to the Detroit Pistons. HERE you can read the details of the trade that brought the Italian from the American capital to the Motor City. But how was your experience in Washington, D.C.?

First, we must remember that the Rooster was coming off a year of inactivity after his late August 2022 injury with Italbasket in Brescia against Georgia. After a very long rehabilitation period, the 1988 class returned to the court during the NBA preseason, eventually making a great debut in the Wizards’ regular season opener: 16 points in 17 minutes.

The start seemed to portend a great comeback and especially a leadership role in this Washington. Unfortunately, however. the Wizards have failed to turn a potentially interesting roster into a full-fledged roster and now find themselves second to last in the standings with 7 wins and 31 losses. Only the Detroit Pistons, Danilo Gallinari’s next team, has done worse than these Washington Wizards. And in all of this Gallinari has not become a team leader but a veteran coming off the bench.

In the long run, the numbers settled down and the former Olimpia Milano finished his adventure in the U.S. capital with 7 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game, all in just under 15 minutes per contest. In short, not exactly unforgettable numbers For someone of Gallinari’s potential.

A curious aspect of his move to Detroit is that Danilo’s brother, Federico, is Development Coach of the Motor City Cruise, the Pistons’ affiliated G-League team. So some players coached by Federico may also be Federico’s teammates.
