It was the trick shot heard round the world.

Days after reporter Shaun Gallagher landed a one-handed, half-court, backward trick shot during a live report with the Harlem Globetrotters, the team is offering him a chance to join the big leagues.

The Globetrotters are offering Gallagher a 1-day contract. In addition, Gallagher will perform with the Globetrotters during their 1:00 p.m. New Year's Eve show in Milwaukee.

Gallagher announced the news on Live at Daybreak Friday, complete with a gift from the team with his own "Hot Shot" jersey, shorts, and head and arm bands.

Over the course of the last week and a half, Gallagher's shot went national - appearing on ESPN, the Late Late Show with James Corden, and much more.
