The New York Knicks have called up Langston Galloway from their Westchester affiliate, league source tells RealGM. He'll debut tomorrow.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) January 6, 2015
The Knicks are formally signing Langston Galloway, a 6-foot-2 guard, on Wednesday to start clock on the 10-day deal, sources tell RealGM.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) January 6, 2015
The Knicks technically employ 15 men after Monday's trade, but they're expected to cut Alex Kirk and Lou Amundson at some point in the near future. And then it's Langston time! I remember one other time a gentleman of that name moved to New York, and that turned out pretty well.
Y'all might remember Galloway, the long-armed rookie from St. Joseph's, from his solid Summer League run and meager minutes in preseason. You can read a bunch more about what he's been up to in Westchester in Joe's post from last week.
This is good. This is what this season is for. The Knicks may do the same with Thanasis Antetokounmpo in the near future, though his situation is different because the Knicks own his draft rights and cannot lose him.
Update: Meanwhile, Toure' might return to the system.
