Langston Galloway
PG/SG, 6’2, 200lbs, 25 years old, 3 years of experience

In his time with the Pelicans, Galloway was highly aggressive in looking for his shot offensively, much more so than he perhaps should have been. Nevertheless, he shot 37.7% from three-point range on a high vol-ume of attempts. Coming to the Kings, the volume went down, but the efficiency went up, all the way up to 47.5% from three. That’s very good. What wasn’t very good was the inability to make any shots consistently at the basket, and the effort on defence, which hadn’t been bad in years prior but which completely disappeared this season. It’s fine if Galloway wants to reinvent him as a gunner, even at that height, but pressure defence must come with it if he is not going to be a pick-and-roll playmaker. Galloway opted out of his $5,434,000 contract for next season, but it’s optimistic to think he will get that again.

Player Plan: Has opted out of a decently sized contract presumably with the aspirations of getting more, or at least the same sort of thing for longer. Can’t see it happening, although three years and $10 mllion with an unguaranteed portion in the back end could be feasible, perhaps slightly higher on the assumption of some point guard duties being possible.
