"I am very excited for the chance given to me by Milano. I really hope I can give to the supporters a lot of satisfactions" said Gallinari who will join the team in the tournee in Spain from September 22nd to October 2nd.
"As I said several times, Danilo Gallinari was the only exception we could make about 'part-time' players. We are excited about having him in the roster for the beginning of the season. He will give us a big help to reach Euroleague Top 16. I am sure that playing with us will also help Danilo in his growth as a player" said coach Sergio Scariolo.
