26 year old and man is beyond washed. Remember when he was leading Azzurri toe to toe with Gallo and Belineli and looked like surefire NBA player in his early 20s?

Lith commentators mentioned that he had to change shooting form due to injury/injuries

He's got very good size for a wing, and he has natural instinct for scoring. The main problem for his career has been that he's a huge ball hog and chucker, that he seems to not get along with numerous coaches, and that he's very injury prone. He also never developed a reliable outside jump shot, which doesn't help.

Still..if someone like Daris Bertans can get an NBA contract.................

couldn't pull a gallinari of whom shares a similar physique and game style. Probably the issue was somewhat mental.
