Hawks reportedly sign free agents Gallinari, Dunn


The Atlanta Hawks have reportedly made a pair of key free agent signings, continuing what appears to be an offseason roster overhaul.

The Hawks have agreed to terms with forward Danilo Gallinari and wing Kris Dunn, according to reports.

Gallinari's deal is for three years and $61.5M deal, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, while Dunn comes aboard for two years and $10M. The second year is a player option, Woj added.

Gallinari, 32, averaged 18.7 points per game last season, his first with the Oklahoma City Thunder. He has previous stops with the Los Angeles Clippers and Denver Nuggets. Gallinari was drafted sixth overall by the Knicks in 2008, and sent to the Nuggets as part of the trade that brought Carmelo Anthony to New York.

The 6-foot-10 combo forward, a native of Italy, has averaged 16 points in 31 minutes per game in his 12-year career. He missed the entirety of the 2013-14 campaign due to a knee injury.

Dunn, 26, will look to reestablish himself presumably in a new role after a disappointing three-year run in Chicago, where he was miscast as a point guard. He's generally valued as a tough and versatile defender.

The moves come on the heels of the team drafting former USC center Onyeka Okongwu with the sixth overall pick in the NBA Draft, prompting questions about the team's plans for center Clint Capela.
