Shams Charania: The Nets are signing hardship guard Langston Galloway to a second 10-day contract, sources tell me and @Alex__Schiffer . Galloway’s first 10-day expired today.
The Brooklyn Nets have signed free agent guard Langston Galloway to a 10-day contract. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not released. Galloway (6’1”, 200) has appeared in 445 career games (62 starts) across seven seasons with Phoenix (2020-21), Detroit (2017-20), Sacramento (2017), New Orleans (2016-17) and New York (2014-16), recording averages of 8.2 points on 39.8 percent shooting from the field, 37.0 percent shooting from 3-point range and 81.6 percent shooting from the free-throw line, 2.4 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 21.9 minutes per contest.
Adrian Wojnarowski: Nets are signing guard Langston Galloway to a hardship exception, sources tell ESPN.
Keith Smith: Langston Galloway didn’t have to wait long to get another shot in the NBA. He was expected to play in the G League Showcase with the College Park Skyhawks, but now he’s joining the Brooklyn Nets.
Chris Kirschner: The College Park Skyhawks and NBA veteran Langston Galloway have agreed to a G League deal, source tells the @The Athletic.
Michael Scotto: Langston Galloway will sign with the NBA G League and play in the G League Showcase (Dec. 19-22) in Las Vegas, league sources told @HoopsHype. Galloway shot a career-high 44.9% from the field and 42.4% from 3-point range last year with the Western Conference champion Phoenix Suns
Marc Stein: The Warriors say they have waived Langston Galloway.
Shams Charania: The Golden State Warriors are signing free agent guard Langston Galloway to a training camp deal, sources tell me and @Anthony Slater.
In other words, Galloway has already exceeded all objective expectations with seven NBA seasons complete and over $30 million in contracts. But he’s also eager for the next step — an expanded role after serving as an end-of-rotation reserve on the Suns, with the possibility of adding NBA champion to his free agency resume.
“I’m optimistic. I played this year. Not many minutes as I want to. But I’m very optimistic because I know how efficient I was when I was out there,” Galloway told the Daily News before Game 1 against the Bucks. “I did what I needed to do and I helped out when the team needed, when somebody was out or got an injury. They just needed another body to go out there and make plays.”
Galloway’s shooting has improved such that he’s shifted to two-guard in his last two stops, largely playing off the ball. But he now desires to climb out of that pigeonhole. “I’m looking at my career and am like, ‘Alright, maybe I need to showcase and show teams I can play point guard, too,” he said. “So that’s my biggest focus, just showing teams and proving to teams I can be effective with that.”
Duane Rankin: OFFICIAL: #Suns signed free agents guards E’Twaun Moore, Langston Galloway and center Damian Jones as well as free agent forward Johnathan Motley, the team announced today. Motley averaged 24 points last season in G League. Has played 46 games with Dallas and L.A. Clippers. pic.twitter.com/zwgITkS3CP
John Hollinger: Nice FA run this week by Phoenix. The Suns also waived Elie Okobo today, presumably so signing Langston Galloway with BAE would keep them under the tax.
Langston Galloway: Thankful For The Opportunity
Michael Scotto: Langston Galloway and the Phoenix Suns have agreed to a deal, league sources told @HoopsHype
Not all of the players from the Pistons’ 2019-20 roster will be in attendance: Some have chosen to skip the voluntary workouts (primarily the veterans) and others are soon-to-be free agents. A source told The Athletic that Langston Galloway, who will be an unrestricted free agent when the market opens, won’t be in Detroit for the workouts.
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
Michael Scotto: Source: Langston Galloway and the New Orleans Pelicans have agreed to a deal.
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.

Any team looking to acquire Micic would have to give Oklahoma City some draft compensation—preferably a first-rounder, though it’s possible the price could have been brought down. “I think that was where it was a little too much for teams,” one Western Conference executive said. “No one wanted to give up a pick plus everything else it would take. The guy can play, I think he’d be good in the NBA. But no one wanted to give up picks and money for him.”
First, there was Micic himself. To ditch Efes and head to the NBA, Micic wanted a few things—a salary in the $6-7 million per year range, a starting spot (or, at least, starter-type minutes), and a role with a contending team. That eliminated a chunk of NBA interest off the bat.
“I knew what the move was,” Hyland told The Denver Post last week via Zoom. “They were already contacting me before and letting me know what was happening. After the moves even happened, the coaches called me, players called me, like, ‘Time to just go out there and be Bizzy. It’s a big opportunity for you.’ And they tell me every day, like, ‘You’re going to have a big role, big opportunity, a lot more minutes, just to just go out there and be yourself.’”
If he’s going to become a staple of Denver’s crunch-time rotation, simultaneously earning trust from coach Michael Malone, Hyland knows he needs to become a more consistent two-way player. “I think it’s moreso the defensive part, but I know I can guard,” he said. “I wasn’t the player this year who got picked on. When I put my mind to it, I know I can guard. … That’s just something I gotta do and be willing to do every possession.”
