The Nets don't sound like they're in love with Danilo Gallinari, but they sure sound like they're in like. They understand the risks of taking a Euro, how the adjustment from the continent to the states can rob a player of his spontaniety, how mental toughness may have to be taught and how the speed of the NBA game can slow development. Still, he's on their short list because he's probably the best SF in the draft.
