The Nets have agreed to a contract with guard Langston Galloway, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
Galloway will be signed to a 10-day contract via the NBA’s hardship exception. The Nets are eligible to sign multiple players, given that they currently have seven players in the health and safety protocols. Also, guard/forward Joe Harris is expected to be shelved for a few more weeks following ankle surgery.
Galloway had just recently agreed to a deal with the G League’s College Park Skyhawks as he sought a return to the NBA. (The Skyhawks are the Hawks’ minor league affiliate.)
Galloway, 30, is 6-foot-1 and plays both guard spots. He spent last season with the reigning Western Conference champion Suns, appearing in 40 games and averaging 4.8 points.
He has also spent time with the Pistons, Kings, Pelicans and Knicks since going undrafted in 2014. He signed with the Warriors in September but was waived before the season.
Overall, Galloway has played 445 NBA games and carries career averages of 8.2 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.6 assists.
Per Bobby Marks of ESPN, Galloway will be paid $128,709 over the course of the 10-day contract. The Nets will assume a salary cap hit of $95,930 and be forced to take on $504,000 in additional tax penalties because of the deal, Marks added.
