Langston Galloway. Contract status: Free agent after the season. Odds he returns: 50 percent. Analysis: Galloway’s shooting was a bit inconsistent during the first two years of a three-year, $21 million contract he signed in 2017. However, this season, he was as consistent as anyone on the roster. Galloway was the only Piston to appear in every game, was arguably the team’s second-best on-ball defender and shot 39.9 percent from 3 on a career-high five attempts per game. Furthermore, Galloway improved as a finisher around the rim. This season, 11 percent of his shot attempts came within 0-3 feet from the basket, and while that’s not an eye-popping percentage by any means, it’s the most of Galloway’s career. He converted on a solid 67.8 percent of those attempts.
Casey loves Galloway and his professionalism, and while Detroit is in a rebuilding phase, keeping a veteran like Galloway around would have its benefits. If it were up to Casey, I think Galloway would come back on a new deal. The front office could go another direction, but there’s no question Galloway is welcome inside the organization.
With no money to spend under the salary cap, it was vital the Pistons roll several needs into their one big signing this year, which likely will be accomplished by using a major portion of the mid-level exception of $8.4 million.
Rod Beard: #Pistons officially announce signing of free-agent guard Langston Galloway. Terms undisclosed, but reportedly 3 years, $21 million.
Adrian Wojnarowski: Free agent guard Langston Galloway is finalizing a three-year, $21M deal with the Detroit Pistons, league sources tell ESPN.
Sacramento Kings guard Langston Galloway will decline his $5.4 million player option, league sources told Basketball Insiders. Galloway will have a $6.8 million cap hold and would become a restricted free agent if the Kings extend a $6.5 million qualifying offer, as Albert Nahmad tweeted.
ESPN Cleveland: Windhorst: The player to watch for the Cavs is Langston Galloway. If he is waived by the Kings I think the Cavs would love to have him.
Ian Begley: Langston Galloway has agreed to terms with New Orleans. Contract details are still being worked on, per sources.
Adam Zagoria: Former Knick Langston Galloway to New Orleans, his agent confirms. Terms being worked out. @Ian Begley had it first.
Bobby Marks: On Langston Galloway. New York was not eligible to sign him to a contract he received in New Orleans. Early Bird rights must be for 2 years.
Marc Stein: The Pelicans are nearing a deal with guard Langston Galloway, league sources say. The Knicks recently made him an unrestricted free agent
Brett Dawson: Langston Galloway went to Christian Life in Baton Rouge. Point guard who’s a decent 3-point shooter. Averaged 9.1 ppg in two seasons in NY.
Ian Begley: Update: the Knicks have rescinded the $2.7 million qualifying offer to Langston Galloway, per league sources. This was likely done to fit Brandon Jennings' deal into cap space. This doesn't preclude the Knicks from re-signing Galloway but makes it a bit more difficult. The club has not renounced free agent Lance Thomas, so it can use Early Bird rights to sign him to a deal worth a max of approximately $6.2 million.
Ian Begley: Phil Jackson says that he expects to re-sign both Langston Galloway and Lance Thomas. But the Knicks likely will have competition for both players. The Thunder, Nets and Mavericks are among the teams who are expected to have interest in the 28-year-old Thomas, per league sources say. The market for Thomas is unclear but hell certainly benefit from the salary-cap increase. The cap will increase from $70 million to $94 million this summer.
Frank Isola: The Knicks want to he re-sign free agents Lance Thomas and Langston Galloway, two hard working role players & high character guys.
That number would jump to $35 million if the club renounced all of its free agents, including guard Langston Galloway and forward Lance Thomas. The guess here, though, is that both Galloway and Thomas will be back. But the Knicks likely will have competition for both players. The Thunder, Nets and Mavericks are among the teams who are expected to have interest in the 28-year-old Thomas, sources say.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN during a pregame appearance on NBA Countdown, the Lakers also are looking hard at P.J. Tucker: “The Lakers have been active. I know they’ve made calls about some wing players to see if there is some shooting available out there. Another player they’re interested in: P.J. Tucker, from the Houston Rockets. There’s a lot of interest among contenders in Tucker, who’s in the last year of his deal. The Miami Heat, who the Lakers play tonight, Milwaukee, Brooklyn, several others.
Jay Hernandez: The talks I’ve had with the Hornets staff, coach James Borrego and management have allowed me to continue to be decisive and confident in the messaging that I have been providing the team. Mitch Kupchak and Larry Jordan came and got to see four games. Their presence in the gym was a great sign of support and commitment to the development we have invested in with the Hornets.
Jay Hernandez: On top of having one of the best bigs in Vernon Carey, we were able to add another in Nick Richards who finally got to play his first game last Sunday. He entered the bubble and left after one day to rejoin the Hornets so having him back adds frontcourt depth that has really helped elevate our team.
AllClippers asked Leonard what his favorite cheat meal was, and he gave a pretty detailed response. “I mean it just depends, it doesn’t matter if I win or lose a game,” Leonard said. “Sometimes I won’t eat fried chicken the whole week, or two weeks, it just depends on the day. I try to eat pretty clean. My favorite food is Mexican food. Whenever I have a cheat day or something, I’m trying to get something at a taco shop, majority in San Diego.”
