Danilo Gallinari Will Return To Italy During NBA Lockout

Danilo Gallinari will play in Italy this season, returning to his home country and the team he starred with prior to the beginning of his NBA career. Gallo will play for Armani Milan, an Italian team slated to play in the Euroleague this season, until the end of the NBA lockout.

Gallinari needed to include an NBA-out in his contract considering he's still owed over $4 million from the Denver Nuggets this season, but until the owners and his fellow players are able to figure out a solution to the Collective Bargaining Agreement, Gallinari will ply his trade closer to home.

The Italian forward played three seasons with Armani Milan in the past, starting at the age of 17, and racked up a couple of accomplishments along the way including the Euroleague's Rising Star Trophy for his play during the 2007-08 season. Now, in his second tour of duty, Gallinari will join former NBA players Malik Hairston and Omar Cook until the lockout is settled.
