Gallinari recently signed a two-year deal with the Cs as the team attempts to go even further than they did last season and perhaps win the NBA Finals.
Gallinari seems all about the move and took to Twitter to celebrate.

On his official Twitter page, Gallinari posted a picture of himself in a Celtics jersey with the caption, “The place I’ve always dreamed of.”
Is Gallinari the missing piece the Celtics have been missing?
Better In Boston
Obviously, the Celtics are a terrific team that came just a couple of wins away from taking home the Larry O’Brien Trophy last season.
They don’t need a whole lot of adjustments moving forward.
Celtics mastermind Brad Stevens has said as much, indicating that the team will instead focus on strengthening its core and adding a few role players.
Gallinari looks to be one of them.
He has averaged 15.6 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 1.9 assists during his career and put up 11.7 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 1.5 assists during last season with the Atlanta Hawks.
He’s long been known as a talented, versatile forward who has a hot hand when it comes to three-pointers: ESPN mentions he has made 1,426 career three-pointers, the fifth-most by any player who is 6-foot-10 or taller.
Aside from Gallinari, the Celtics haven’t made many moves, although they did land Malcolm Brogdon from the Indiana Pacers, which was a fairly decent deal because he has been a hot commodity in the league for years now.
With this new talent on board, will the Celtics be ready to achieve what they couldn’t last year?
