As a rookie, the youngster started 41 games and earned NBA All-Rookie Second Team honors. The Knicks obviously improved considerably this offseason. Arron Afflalo is a logical candidate for starting shooting guard, and New York appears open to giving Jose Calderon another shot at running the triangle offense as starting point guard.
Last season, Galloway was undoubtedly a rare bright spot in a poor excuse for a Knicks' season. Plucked from the D-League after showing some potential in Westchester, he became somewhat of a revelation after being called up and performing well soon after. He gave the team and their fans something (or someone) to be excited about amidst the struggles.
The 23 year old may have started out of pure necessity as the season went on and the depleted Knicks were met with injuries and player cold streaks, but he quickly went on to earn his keep. Nevertheless, his skill set is probably even more catered towards a very notable bench role. Galloway is the kind of player who can score in bunches, clearly boasting plenty of confidence and an assertive nature offensively. He could certainly provide relief to both guard positions, all the while ensuring the Knicks don't miss a beat in the starters' absence(s).
At 6'2" and 200 pounds with a scorer's mentality, Galloway is essentially a shooting guard in a point guard's body. He's not the type of distributor the Knicks need starting off contests on a good note. The St. Joseph's product isn't likely to help create the type of balance Calderon or even Jerian Grant very well could.
What you see is what you get with Galloway, which probably isn't a bad things by any means. He may have been a starter last year, but the opportunity he was provided merely gave him a chance to strut his stuff and show off what he can do. It seemingly prepared him for a much bigger (and arguably more important) role --- sixth man on a potentially winning squad, instead of starter on a suffering one.
