Denver Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari will reportedly opt out of his contract with the team and hit the free-agent market this summer, The Vertical reported Tuesday.

Gallinari will become a hot free agent acquisition because of his ability to shoot the ball, though health concerns may drive his value down in the long run. He has only played 116 games in the last two seasons.

According to the Denver Post, the Nuggets will try to work out a deal for him. He was set to make $16.1 million in the 2017-18 season.

Gallinari averaged 18.2 points and 5.2 rebounds per game for Denver last season.
