Bargnani receives Knicks advice from Gallinari

Published Add your comment

Andrea Bargnani has been receiving advice from former Knick Danilo Gallinari as he prepares to move to New York following his trade from the Toronto Raptors.

Bargnani's trade is set to be become official later this week and is flying to New York from his native Rome to met with Knicks bosses before he is unveiled as the franchise's player.

The 27-year-old has been seeking advice from Gallinari as he gets ready to move to a new city, and has asked his compatriot to recommend the best Italian restaurants available in Manhattan.

"We are very good friends,’’ Gallinari told The Post.

"He’s a great guy. He loves to work and he likes New York a lot. He’s very excited."

Bargnani was the first overall pick in the 2006 NBA draft but failed to provide Toronto with what they needed, with initial hopes the imposing Italian would be able to replace Dirk Nowitzki or Pau Gasol.

Last season his performances led to abuse from the Raptors fans, with one notable match against the Knicks seeing Bargnani booed on his entrance to and exit from the court.
