Professional career[edit]

New York Knicks (2015–2016)[edit]

2014–15 season[edit]

After going undrafted in the 2014 NBA draft, Galloway joined the New York Knicks for the 2014 NBA Summer League. On September 9, he signed with the Knicks,[3] but was later waived by the team on October 25 prior to the start of the 2014–15 regular season.[4] On November 3, he was acquired by the Westchester Knicks of the NBA Development League as an affiliate player of New York.[5]

On January 7, 2015, Galloway signed a 10-day contract with the New York Knicks, thus becoming Westchester's first ever call-up.[6] He went on to make his NBA debut the same day, recording 7 points, 2 rebounds, 3 assists and 1 steal in a 101–91 loss to the Washington Wizards.[7] He made his second appearance for the Knicks the following night, scoring 19 points on 6-of-10 shooting in a loss to the Houston Rockets.[8] He signed a second 10-day contract with the Knicks on January 17,[9] and then a partially guaranteed, two-year deal with the team on January 27.[10][11] On April 13, he had a season-best game with 26 points on 10-of-12 from the field and 6-of-6 from three-point range in a 112–108 win over the Atlanta Hawks.[12] The strong performance helped lift Galloway to average 11.8 points per game for his rookie season (third among rookies, behind only Jordan Clarkson and Andrew Wiggins), and on May 18, he was named to the NBA All-Rookie second team, becoming the first undrafted player in Knicks history to make an NBA All-Rookie team.[13]

2015–16 season[edit]

In July 2015, Galloway re-joined the Knicks for the 2015 NBA Summer League, where he averaged 9.8 points and 5.5 rebounds in four games. His impressive preseason form and good defense shown during the 2014–15 season earned him a spot on the Knicks' opening night roster for the 2015–16 season. Early on in his second season, Galloway led the team and ranked fourth in the NBA in fourth-quarter minutes played, earning important playing time from coach Derek Fisher.[14] He was also among the NBA's leaders in three-point field goal percentage over the first three weeks of the season.[15] Having started in 41 of his 45 games played in 2014–15, Galloway had a stern bench role in 2015–16, starting in just one game over the first half of the season. On January 26, 2016, he scored a season-high 21 points off the bench in a 128–122 overtime loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder.[16] Three days later, he made just his third start of the season, recording 11 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists, 3 steals and 1 block in a 102–84 win over the Phoenix Suns.[17]

New Orleans Pelicans (2016–2017)[edit]

On July 21, 2016, Galloway signed with the New Orleans Pelicans.[18] On November 14, 2016, he scored a season-high 21 points in a 106–105 win over the Boston Celtics, helping the Pelicans improve their record to 2–9.[19] He topped that mark five days later, scoring 23 points and hitting a career-high six three-pointers in a 121–116 overtime win over the Sacramento Kings.[20] On December 5, he hit six three-pointers and scored a season-high 26 points in a 110–108 double overtime loss to the Memphis Grizzlies.[21]

Sacramento Kings (2017)[edit]

On February 20, 2017, Galloway was traded alongside Tyreke Evans, Buddy Hield and 2017 first round and second round draft picks to the Sacramento Kings in exchange for DeMarcus Cousins and Omri Casspi.[22]

Detroit Pistons (2017–present)[edit]

On July 6, 2017, Galloway signed with the Detroit Pistons.[23][24]
