Knicks Guard Langston Galloway went from an undrafted nobody, to a player on a 10-day contract, to a member of the NBA All-Rookie Second Team. Galloway, who played with the Knicks in the Summer League and the preseason before being sent to the D-League to begin the year, was called up from Westchester midway through the season, and quickly established himself as a serviceable player at the NBA level. The St. Joe’s grad played 45 games and started 41 of them, averaging 12 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists, and a steal in 32 minutes. Galloway signed a partially-guaranteed contract with the Knicks for next season after his second 10-day contract expired, so New York has the option to hold onto the 23 year-old for around $850,000. The Knicks entered last year’s draft with no picks, but put together a rookie crop that, between Galloway, Cleanthony Early, Thanasis Antetokounmpo, and Travis Wear, could pay dividends going forward.

The Knicks will look to land one of the league’s top first-year players on Draft Night in June, and will soon find out where they will pick in the first round with the Draft Lottery set for tomorrow night.
