Langston Galloway looks ready for a new season

Despite the losing effort, Langston Galloway played very well coming off the bench. He scored 24 points coming off the bench last night for the Pistons.

I was really happy with the way he played throughout the entire game. Offensively, there was no hesitation in his shots from outside. That says a lot about where his confidence is heading into the new season.

Last year, I believe Galloway was one of the players that suffered from Stan Van Gundy’s  mismanagement of the roster that he had.

Galloway averaged less than 15 minutes a night and appeared in just 58 games last season. That’s not exactly what you’re looking for when you sign a three-year, $21 million deal with a team.

There’s reason to believe that Casey will be utilizing him a little more in his rotation. He’s a streaky shooter that can move with the ball and without it.

He showed that last night. In the first quarter, there was a sequence where Galloway came down the baseline, up around the top of the key off a screen, took a hand off and used the space to get all the way to rim.

I think we have yet to see the best of Langston Galloway in a Pistons uniform.
