In his fourth year in the league, Gallinari is averaging 17.4 points and 5.2 rebounds per game for the Nuggets.

Gallinari was traded last season to the Nuggets in a three-way blockbuster deal that brought Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups to the New York Knicks.  Currently, the Nuggets’ record stands at 12-5, which is second in the Western Conference behind the Oklahoma City Thunder.
