Another Louisiana-born NBA Player Gets Paid
It's been a big NBA offseason so far for players with ties to Louisiana. First, New Orleans Pelicans star Jrue Holliday signs a crazy deal for over $100 Million, then former Louisiana Tech star Paul Millsap got a fat contract from the Denver Nuggets, now it's Langston Galloway's turn.
Galloway isn't to the level of Holliday or Millsap yet, he's put in just over 200 games over three seasons, playing for three different teams. His career scoring average sits below 10, and 8.7 ppg. His assist numbers aren't extacly where you'd like to see them for a point guard either, averaging 2.2 per game.
But that hasn't stopped the Detroit Pistons from bringing in Galloway to fill multiple needs. Reading the headlines from the Detroit Sports Media, they feel like they're getting a young player ready to breakout. Which we absolutely hope is true.
His Pistons contract is reportedly worth $21 million over three years.
Here's more on Langston Galloway from the Louisiana Radio Network:
"Former Pelican Langston Galloway has signed a free-agent deal with Detroit. The graduate of Christian Life Academy in Baton Rouge is 25 years old and averaged nearly eight points a game last season."
