76ers: Galloway would give the 76ers a shooter, an expiring contract, Full Bird rights and a try-hard on defense. He alone could fetch the Pistons a decent return. Per a source, Galloway has been of interest to Philly.

Langston Galloway: Galloway is a 39.7 percent 3-point shooter who tries on defense and is on an expiring deal. All signs point to him being on the trade block, even though the 28-year-old is valued in Detroit as an ultimate professional. The 76ers have expressed some interest, per a source. I don’t think Galloway would bring the same return in a trade as Reggie Bullock did last year (Detroit got Svi Mykhailiuk and a 2021 second-round draft pick), but I could see the Pistons earning a second-round pick for him.
What about Galloway’s Detroit Pistons teammate Luke Kennard or NBA free agent Jeff Green. Add those names to the list of wing players the Sixers have expressed interest in acquiring in a trade and/or free agent signees, according to multiple league sources. One source confirmed that Green worked for the Sixers in Miami while the team was there to face the Heat a couple of weeks ago.
Aside from Galloway’s production this season, he also has an expiring contract, which is valuable. According to one league source, there is a top team in the Eastern Conference that is potentially interested in Galloway’s services. If the Pistons remain in the playoff hunt and remain adamant on chasing one of the final seeds, Galloway seems unlikely to go anywhere before the deadline — though a late first-round pick might be too enticing. However, if the Pistons pivot, Galloway could still be traded for an asset.
Two league sources tell the Free Press the Pistons are very open to moving Galloway, which isn’t surprising. The Pistons have engaged teams on Galloway for months, but his price tag (one year, $7.3 million) remains a challenging roadblock.

NBA star Giannis Antetokounmpo was in Greece for a meeting with the country’s prime minister Thursday and a special ceremony to bestow Greek citizenship on his mother Veronica and younger brother Alex. Antetokounmpo, who led the Milwaukee Bucks to the NBA championship in July, attended the ceremony at the official residence of Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis. The 26-year-old Antetokounmpo was born in Athens, the son of Nigerian immigrants. He was granted Greek citizenship in 2013, allowing him to travel to the United States and join the Bucks later that year.
“We always felt Greek, but now we have an official stamp and we are happy,” Antetokounmpo told reporters after the ceremony. “Alex and my mom are Greek citizens now.” Antetokounmpo also traveled to Greece in August with his brother Thanassis, carrying the Larry O’Brien NBA championship trophy. He took the trophy to the ancient Acropolis in Athens to celebrate with members of his family.
