Danilo Gallinari, a seasoned forward, has chosen to exercise his $6.8 million player option to join the Boston Celtics for the 2023–2024 season, according to his agent Michael Tellem of Excel Sports Management, who spoke with ESPN on Thursday.

After missing the 2022–23 season due to a damaged ACL in his left knee, Gallinari will get to make his franchise debut this year in what is anticipated to be a significant role for the Celtics.

In August, while representing his native Italy in a FIBA qualification match, Gallinari suffered an injury. His two-year, $13.3 million contract with the Celtics from the previous offseason included a player option for the following year.

Gallinari had previously torn his left ACL once before, in April 2013, which kept him out of the 2013–14 campaign.

For the Atlanta Hawks in 2021–2022, Gallinari, 34, averaged 11.7 points per game on 38.1% 3-point shooting. According to ESPN Stats & Information, he has hit 1,426 career 3-pointers in 13 NBA seasons, which is the fifth-most of any player 6-foot-10 or higher in history. He also averages 15.6 points and 4.8 rebounds per game.
