Paynt Points: Mailbag, Gallinari Chatter & Veteran Free Agents

New, comments

It’s a little bit of everything in the Paynt Points studio this week.

NBA: Phoenix Suns at Atlanta Hawks Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Editor’s Note: On behalf of everyone at Canis Hoopus, I want to sincerely thank Jake for his written contributions over the last few years, and am extremely excited about his new venture via Substack. As we discussed on the show, Jake will still be “one of us” in terms of having #kahntent located at Canis Hoopus (via his Paynt Points podcast), but going forward his written work will be found here at the Howls and Growls Newsletter.

If you have the means to do so, please consider signing up and supporting Jake’s latest venture — I know the quality and consistency will be as strong as ever, and I cannot wait to see how many nice things he has to say about Jaden McDaniels.


As we grind through what has been a quiet summer in Wolves World, news about potential trade discussions is starting to slowly filter through. This week, our pal Dane Moore reported that the Minnesota Timberwolves have held discussions with the Atlanta Hawks about a move built around Danilo Gallinari.

With that in mind, this week’s mailbag edition of Paynt Points was centered around Gallo and what he can bring to the Timberwolves, as well as a bunch of talk about what other not-so-sexy veteran names could be impactful free agency additions. To finish the show, Jake discusses his new writing venture: the Howls and Growls Newsletter.
