3. Langston Galloway, G
The only positive about the 2014-15 NBA season for the New York Knicks was the surprising play of Langston Galloway.
Lucky for them, the 23-year old is about ready to bust out.
Not only has Gallo carried over his solid play from a season ago – in which he was named NBA Rookie second-team – he’s stepped it up into stellar mode.
Having the ability and wherewithal to play both guard spots, Galloway has played the perfect sixth-man for the Knicks this season. In 25.4 minutes a night, Gallo’s averaged 9.5 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 2.0 assists. His line also includes a ridiculous .481 3PT%.
If he can take some of the backup point guard duties, it could pave the way for less Calderon and more Grant over time.
