Knicks coach Derek Fisher had some nice things to say about his D-League pickup.
Galloway's play marked a rare bright spot in what was a historically bad season for the club. In 45 games with the Knicks, Galloway averaged 11.8 points, 3.3 assists, 4.2 rebounds and 1.2 steals.
Fisher compared the unheralded rookie's season to a movie, according to WFUV Radio's Kenny Ducey.
Galloway went undrafted out of St. Joseph's and spent summer league with the Knicks before he was signed and then waived by the team. He eventually joined the Knicks' D-League affiliate in Westchester County, N.Y.
The guard signed a 10-day contract in January after leading Westchester in scoring and the D-League in steals. He earned a second 10-day contract with New York and by the end of the month he had signed a partially guaranteed two-year deal.
The Knicks finished 17-65 and hold the second-best odds to win the draft lottery.
