Langston Galloway

In 2014-15, Langston Galloway went from an undrafted free agent to the All-Rookie Second Team. He immediately became a beacon of hope for the New York Knicks.

Somehow, ESPN decided to rank Galloway as the No. 317 player in the NBA.

In 2014-15, Galloway averaged 11.8 points on 35.2 percent shooting from beyond the arc. Those aren’t spectacular numbers, but they were impressive from a rookie who was tasked with taking on a bigger role than he should’ve had to.

Defensively, Galloway proved to be an ace in the making.

According to, Galloway held opponents to 39.7 percent shooting during the 2014-15 season. He forced his assignments to shoot 3.7 percent worse than their average field goal percentage.

Carving out playing time won’t always be easy, but Galloway can thrive at both guard spots.
