2018 Fantasy Outlook
Fresh off inking a three-year, $21 million contract with the Pistons, Galloway appeared likely to jump into a somewhat significant rotation role with his new team. However, even with starting point guard Reggie Jackson missing 37 games due to injury, Galloway still couldn't secure anything more than a minor reserve role most nights and ended the season with career lows across the board of 6.2 points, 1.6 rebounds and 1.0 assist across 14.9 minutes. The 26-year-old did knock down 1.3 three-pointers per game, but his lack of time on the court kept Galloway well off the Fantasy radar. That shouldn't change much going into the 2018-19 season. Jackson should be back to full strength and Ish Smith is slated to operate as his backup. In addition, veteran Jose Calderon was brought into the fold as added insurance in the backcourt. While Galloway has the ability to play both guard positions, the additional backcourt bodies severely hurt his chances of becoming a viable Fantasy option. Read Past Outlooks

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Galloway spent the first 55 games of the 2016-17 season with the Pelicans, but was eventually sent to the Kings along with DeMarcus Cousins and Omri Casspi, in exchange for Buddy Hield, Tyreke Evans and a pair of draft picks. In 74 games combined between the Pelicans and Kings, Galloway averaged 7.9 points, 2.1 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.6 three-pointers across 20.2 minutes. His improvement from beyond the arc was particularly impressive, as he shot a career-high 39 percent from deep. His solid play overall earned Galloway a three-year, $21 million contract from the Pistons during free agency. However, with Reggie Jackson still leading the way at point guard, Galloway will be battling Ish Smith for minutes as Jackson's backup. Smith played surprisingly well last year in a reserve capacity, so the two could end up splitting time running the second unit. That should keep Galloway off the Fantasy radar in the majority of formats, so don't expect much of a jump in production during his fourth NBA season.
After impressing with the Knicks as an undrafted rookie in 2014-15, Galloway got off to a hot start last season, hitting double figures in the scoring column in six of his first eight games while knocking down an otherworldly 18-of-29 (62.1%) of three-point attempts. Galloway would fall into a funk shortly thereafter, and elevated playing time during the second half couldn't prevent his overall numbers from crashing across the board. He would finish the campaign with averages of 7.6 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 0.9 treys and 0.9 steals in 24.8 minutes per game, all of which were worse marks than his rookie season. The Knicks didn't make a real effort to re-sign Galloway in restricted free agency this summer, prompting the 24-year-old to head back to his native Louisiana and settle for a two-year deal with the Pelicans. Playing time is up for grabs in the Pelicans backcourt with the team's top two guards, Jrue Holiday (personal) and Tyreke Evans (knee), both expected to miss at least the first several weeks of the season, but it's unclear if Galloway can emerge from the scrum to land a high-minute role off the bench, much less a starting job. He'll have to compete with Tim Frazier, E'Twaun Moore, Buddy Hield and Lance Stephenson for playing time, with one of those five potentially being left out of the rotation to start the year. Galloway's role would only decline further once Holiday or Evans returns to active duty.
One of the few bright spots in the Knicks' 2014-15 season, Galloway was signed as an undrafted rookie in January and proceeded to average 11.8 points, 4.2 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.4 three-pointers, and 1.2 steals in 32 minutes per game across 45 appearances, including 41 starts. While that production was relative to the Knicks' patchwork roster, which offered Galloway starter's minutes he probably wouldn't receive elsewhere, the 23-year-old combo guard's skill set made him a good match for coach Derek Fisher's system. Such versatility figures to allow Galloway to remain in the Knicks' rotation this season, even if their acquisition of first-round draftee Jerian Grant, as well as the expected return to health of Jose Calderon and signing of Arron Afflalo crowds New York's backcourt minutes distribution. In all likelihood, Galloway's experience from last season should set him up nicely to make an impact off the Knicks' bench this time around, when he should be more comfortable playing at the NBA level. So while it would be shocking if he approached the 32 minutes he averaged as a rookie, Galloway's fit within the Knicks' offensive scheme could help fantasy owners to varying degrees in numerous categories, particularly in the deepest of leagues.
