On January 7, 2015, Galloway signed a 10-day contract with the New York Knicks, thus becoming Westchester's first ever call up.[6] He went on to make his NBA debut the same day as he recorded 7 points, 2 rebounds, 3 assists and 1 steal in the 91-101 loss to the Washington Wizards.[7] The following game on January 8 against the Houston Rockets, he scored 19 points on 6-of-10 shooting in the 96-120 loss.[8] On January 17, he signed a second 10-day contract with the Knicks.[9] On January 27, he signed a partially guaranteed, two-year deal with the Knicks.[10][11] On April 13, he had a season-best game with 26 points on 10-of-12 from the field and 6-of-6 from the three-point line in a 112-108 win over the Atlanta Hawks.[12] The strong performance helped lift Galloway to average 11.8 points per game for his rookie season (third among rookies, behind only Jordan Clarkson and Andrew Wiggins), and on May 18, he was named to the NBA All-Rookie second team, becoming the first undrafted player in Knicks history to make an NBA All-Rookie team.[13]
