Gallinari reminds me of the broken-down Larry Bird at the end of his career lying next to the bench to take the strain off his back. No way the Knicks should play him more than the 15-20 minutes he gets now. Lopez would have been a great choice. As for the other "young" players, we all know what Nate and Lee can do as they get plenty of minutes, so the only ones to possibly give more time to are Chandler (who already plays a lot) and maybe Nichols. This article doesn't really make a lot of sense.
