You can add another name to the list of big men the Boston Celtics may target ahead of the 2020 NBA trade deadline.
The Celtics have "monitored" Oklahoma City Thunder big man Danilo Gallinari as a potential trade target, Bleacher Report's Eric Pincus reported Thursday, citing an NBA source.
Boston reportedly also is interested in Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond, who would provide more of what the Celtics are looking for as a physical, rim-protecting presence.
The 31-year-old Gallinari doesn't have Drummond's paint presence but is a superior scorer who can stretch the floor: He's averaging 18.1 points per game this season and ranks 14th in the NBA with 2.9 3-pointers made per game.
Neither Drummond nor Dallinari would come cheap, though: Gallinari is making $22.6 million on the final year of his contract, while Drummond is netting $27 million with a player option for 2020-21.
That means Boston likely would need to include either Gordon Hayward or Marcus Smart to make the salaries match, assuming Kemba Walker, Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown are untouchable.
Both Hayward and Smart reportedly have been non-starters in recent trade considerations, however.
The Phoenix Suns and Toronto Raptors are among "several" teams pursuing Gallinari, per Pincus, so unless the Celtics can work out a favorable deal, it seems unlikely they'd pull the trigger on the 12-year veteran.
