In their latest move, the Los Angeles Clippers were close to working out a sign-and-trade with the Denver Nuggets to acquire free agent forward Danilo Gallinari late Monday night, according to a report from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. 

The Clippers have had quite an offseason, having traded All-Star point guard Chris Paul to the Houston Rockets in exchange for a number of players, including Patrick Beverley, Sam Dekker and Lou Williams. A few days later, they agreed to a massive new deal with All-Star forward Blake Griffin

Shams Charania added that the deal would be a three-team trade, and that Paul Millsap, who agreed to a deal with Denver on Sunday, also would be included. The Nuggets would keep Millsap, the Clippers would get Gallinari, and the Hawks would get Diamond Stone, Jamal Crawford and a first-round pick.

Sam Amick of USA Today added that once the deal Gallinari would receive would be $20M per year for three years. 

 Amick also reported that Crawford has no plans to stay with the rebuilding Hawks, and would request a buyout or trade. 

Wojnarowski also added that the Clippers sold Gallinari on a three-man frontcourt along with Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan.

Gallinari has dealt with injuries throughout his career, and played only 63 games last season. When healthy, Gallinari is a dynamic scorer and proved it last season, averaging 18.2 points and shooting 38.9 percent from 3-point land. 

With three players taller than 6-foot-10, the Clippers will run out one of the biggest frontcourts in the league, but with Gallinari's ability to stretch the floor and operate on the wing, and Griffin's ability to work as a point forward, the Clippers should be able to make things work -- especially on the offensive end.
