First of all, it's a rumour.

Secondly, how many Italian-born players has he brought here exactly? Two? And one was traded away when it was clear it wasn't happening for him.

Thirdly, how many former Suns have been here? Three, and two were brought here because they had shorter contracts than the guys they were flipped for and one was brought in because he was an available big hack.

Lastly, Gallo is 6'10" and shoots the 3. He provides length and size at the SF postion and is actually not a bad rebounder or defender. If he's brought in for the right price, this could be a great move.
