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.

People around the league consider New York more of a destination today than it was in the past. Team performance has gone a long way in repairing the organization’s image. But the people running the show have changed too, with a new front office led by former CAA agent Leon Rose and William Wesley (a.k.a. World Wide Wes).
Thibodeau’s comments align with intel from around the league that says Barrett is a basketball junkie who works hard and seeks out feedback. Guys like that tend to fulfill their upside. It’s just a matter of what that upside is: All-Star? Superstar? He already looks like a really good rotation guy and his head coach believes in him. We’ll see.
“This is frustrating,” said Haliburton, whose Kings had fallen to lowly Detroit at home the night before. “I’ve never lost like this in my life, so it’s obviously different. But I think that’s the great part about being a lottery pick is (that) now I’m expected to come into a franchise and help change the culture and help change things for the better. It’s just a part of the journey that’s not fun but is just a part of it. “I have film up right now (in his room) that I’m watching from last night. It’s been hard, but it’s kind of the beauty in the struggle, right? It’s a lot of different emotions, and it’s learning how to deal with it and hopefully make sure it doesn’t become something that’s consistent.”
So Buddy asked you what you felt and thought you were bullshitting him? Yeah, yeah, exactly. Obviously I have aspirations to start and be a star and be a superstar, (and) I know that that can come. I’ve just got to go about my days the right way.
Well with that in mind — and I’m not trying to be dramatic, click-baity guy — but does it piss you off that so many teams passed? Are you going to be one of those players where when you play each of these teams there’s a little extra fuel because of the way that went down? Hell yeah, for sure. I think the great players internally have that, you know what I’m saying? And I think it’s just a part of them forever, right? That’s just who they are. They’re not going to be super vocal about it, by any means, but just internally that extra motivation, I think the great ones always find that. So I think it definitely is in my head all the time, and there has definitely been some dumb shit said throughout the process where I’m like, ‘Ok, let’s not forget that you said that.’ …There have been people who said crazy things, like they don’t really see it in me or they don’t see the fit. I’m a basketball player, so I feel like if you put me anywhere I’m going to go out there and play to my abilities. Of course I have that confidence in myself. But at the end of the day, I understand. Everybody’s got to make their own decisions, and live with that. And then my goal is just to make people in 20 years be like, ‘Man, I fucked that up,’ you know?
