Fake NBA Trade of the Day 6/24/16: Gallo to Chicago

Gallo Bulls1

Every day, Pick and Popovich will post one fake trade and explain why it makes sense for every team involved to make it. There are no parameters beyond fitting within the salary cap. Sometimes the trades will involve stars, others role players. They are not grounded in actual rumors, they just make sense on paper. During the 2016 NBA Playoffs, each week will feature seven fake trades of one star player. This is Danilo Gallinari Week. 



Denver Nuggets Receive: 

Doug McDermott

No. 14 Overall Pick



 Chicago Bulls Receive:

 Danilo Gallinari




Why Denver would make this trade: McDermott may be limited, but hot damn can he shoot. Oh, and lottery picks are always nice.

Why Chicago would make this trade: Gallinari is the perfect small forward for an isolation-heavy backcourt like Chicago’s, and Jimmy Butler could cover for him defensively assuming the Bulls find a new rim-protector.
