Former Denver Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari just signed a three-year, $65 million deal with the L.A. Clippers, but he’s already dealing with an injury.
Early Sunday, Gallinari’s Italian team was playing in the Eurobasket competition, and got into an altercation that saw Danilo land a punch square in the face of his opponent.
