3. Langston Galloway, 2014 (undrafted)

Career achievements: NBA All-Rookie Second Team (2015) 

During the 2014 NBA Draft, the New York Knicks didn’t have a first-round pick. So in an attempt to add young players, they had to use their lone second-round draft pick and/or take a shot on undrafted players. One of the players that the Knicks decided to take a shot on was Langston Galloway, a four-year standout player out of Saint Joseph’s. And he ended up being a worthwhile risk for New York.

During his rookie season in New York, Galloway averaged 12 points, four rebounds, and three assists on 40 percent shooting from the field and 35 percent shooting from three-point range. He played well enough as a rookie that he earned NBA All-Rookie Second Team honors that season. Galloway only played two seasons in New York before he went off and signed elsewhere but he played in every game during his sophomore season, becoming a key cog for the Knicks during the 2015-16 season.

Galloway would end up playing eight seasons in the NBA before falling out of the league. But you have to credit the Knicks for Galloway. He was a great undrafted find that ended up being a quality player for the team early on in his career.
