The busy ‘offseason’ rolls on.

Your Phoenix Suns continued their busy offseason on Monday, agreeing to a deal with free agent guard Langston Galloway, Michael Scotto of HoopsHype reported.

Galloway joins a rapidly changing Suns squad that has elevated from a Western Conference bottom-feeder, to a Western Conference trouble-maker, to a Western Conference contender in one year.

Galloway is coming off a career year inside and outside of the arc in Detroit. In three seasons with the Pistons the St. Joe’s product averaged 8.4 points in 21 minutes. His career includes stops in New York, New Orleans, and Sacramento. He’ll sign in Phoenix for the veteran minimum.

In a corresponding move, the Suns waived Elie Okobo.

The book closes on Okobo’s tenure in Phoenix after two seasons. The 23-year-old appeared in 108 games in a Suns uniform, posting averages of 4.8 points and 2.2 assists in 15.5 minutes. With the addition of Galloway and the exit of Okobo, the Suns roster now looks like this:

  • Devin Booker
  • Chris Paul
  • Deandre Ayton
  • Mikal Bridges
  • Jae Crowder
  • Cam Johnson
  • Dario Saric
  • Jevon Carter
  • Langston Galloway
  • Cam Payne
  • Jalen Smith
  • E’Twaun Moore
  • Damian Jones
  • Abdel Nader

Looks like a playoff team to me. Season starts in 29 days. Go Suns.
