Los Angeles Clippers (2017–present)
On July 6, 2017, the Los Angeles Clippers acquired Gallinari from the Denver Nuggets as part of a three-team trade that sent Jamal Crawford, Diamond Stone and the Clippers’ 2018 protected first round draft pick (via Houston) to the Atlanta Hawks and a 2019 second-round draft pick from Atlanta (via Washington) to Denver. In his debut for the Clippers in their season opener on October 19, 2017, Gallinari scored 11 points in a 108–92 win over the Los Angeles Lakers. On December 6, 2017, Gallinari returned to action against the Minnesota Timberwolves after missing a month due to a glute injury. However, on December 20, he was ruled out until at least January with a partial tear of his left glute muscle. On February 5, 2018, he scored 28 points in a 104–101 win over the Dallas Mavericks.
