Gallo is widely seen as having the potential to be a future All-Star. Of course, with all the positives in his game, he has an equal amount of negative aspects he has to improve upon.
Danilo had a breakout season last year, as he earned a starting nod and more than doubled his numbers in nearly every statistical category.
Gallinari really came on last season during the final eight games, as he averaged 22.4 points, 5.9 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 2.8 threes. If Gallo is not traded soon, he has two seasons to prove to the Knicks brass that he is capable of getting those types of numbers over the course of a full season.
Up until this point, Randolph has only shown brief flashes of how much he is capable of contributing on the court. He spent the majority of his time in Golden State in coach Don Nelson's doghouse.
During the final month of his rookie season, Anthony averaged 15.1 points, 10.5 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.5 steals and 0.9 blocks. These tantalizing numbers are a small glimpse of the sort of damage he can create with 30-plus minutes on the court.
When things were starting to finally look up for Anthony in terms of playing time, coach Nelson turns back to his mad ways and relegates Anthony to the bench for his sophomore season. Randolph didn't complain and was extremely productive in his limited minutes, but his season prematurely ended due to multiple injuries to his left ankle.
After being traded to New York this past summer, hopes are running high for Randolph's potential prospects in the Big Apple. His poor showing in preseason has hampered expectations as his role in the Knicks rotation comes into question.
Could he be all flash and no show?
It's certainly a possibility, as he has yet to make any sort of lasting impression in his short time in the league. But, Randolph is still young, and if he can stay healthy, the sky's the limit for him.
Both are capable of filling an important role on the team. Randolph takes the place of Shawn Marion and Gallo as the primary threat from deep.
However, Anthony's ceiling as a player appears to be much higher. Gallo is not capable of playing at the four for long stretches of time, and if he weren't included in a deal for Anthony, he would be relegated to sixth man. Randolph, on the other hand, could easily occupy the power forward position, helping to round out a more balanced roster.
