The 24-year-old was a regular part of the Knicks’ rotation this season, his second in the NBA. Galloway appeared in all 82 games, averaging 7.6 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 24.8 minutes while shooting 39.3% from the field and 34.4% from 3-point range.

    I kind of saw the Pelicans coming on that. Its a relatively good fit for them, and I’ve liked their moves this offseason after a more than questionable one last year

    Pelicans are one of the most improved teams this offseason, they lose Gordon and Anderson but not sure if those are loses since the 2 couldn’t stay healthy, this team was the 8 seed 2 seasons ago and they’re better than that team they could be the 6 seed not that it matters with the Warriors

    this signing doesn’t make up for the Solomon Hill and Moore disasters.
    I don’t care how much the salary cap has gone up they’ll live to regret those deals sooner than later. If AD can’t get a competitive team around him before his contract is up he’ll be bolt.

    • Steve in Chicago

      Moore is a solid player, although not starting caliber. He put in some very solid games defensively and had a few good offensive runs to keep the Bulls in some games, not that it mattered in the end.

    • Just because you’ve never heard of those guys doesn’t mean they’re disasters. Those are quality rotation players that a lot of teams wouldn’t mind having. One of the biggest issues for the Pelicans has been depth, and those two address that while also having the added benefit of not being injury prone.
