Alvin Gentry said that he's planning on giving Archie Goodwin minutes right away.

"We sign a guy, we play him," said Gentry. "Ask James Ennis." Ennis logged 24 minutes in his New Orleans' debut last season, so Goodwin could be looking at a similar workload with the Pelicans so banged up. Last year through 10 games in February Goodwin averaged 15.0 points, 3.8 assists and 2.8 turnovers per game on 41.1 percent shooting while earning 32.4 minutes a night, so he could be worth a speculative add in deep points leagues. However, fantasy GMs in most leagues can use a wait-and-see approach here.

Archie Goodwin has signed his deal with the Pelicans.

It's a two-year deal, but the second year is a team option. Goodwin should get minutes right away with the Pelicans so banged up, but it's not clear if he will play on Monday vs. the Warriors.

Free agent G Archie Goodwin is finalizing a two-year deal with the Pelicans, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.

The Pelicans could waive injured Lance Stephenson to clear a roster spot, but ESPN's Marc Stein reports that they're still exploring their options. Stephenson recently suffered a groin injury that requires surgery and his loss detracts from the Pelicans' already shaky playmaking, so the addition of Goodwin makes plenty of sense. Fantasy GMs in deep leagues should grab him, but everyone else can take a wait-and-see approach.

The Suns will waive G Archie Goodwin, according to The Vertical's Shams Charania.

It is arguably the most surprising move of the day. Goodwin was a first-round pick back in the 2013 draft and is still just 22 years old. He averaged 8.9 points in 19.5 minutes for the Suns last season. He even started 13 games for Phoenix, and averaged 15.9 points and 4.4 assists in those 13 contests. He had one year left of guaranteed money on his contract worth $2.1 million. There are some obvious flaws in his game, especially his career 3-point percentage currently sits at just 22.7 percent. On the other hand, he has shown flashes of incredible athleticism and talent. It is safe to assume he'll draw plenty of interest from around the league and likely won't clear waivers.

Archie Goodwin is trying to stay positive despite limited opportunities in the backcourt this season.

"I can only control what I can control," Goodwin said. "I’m just staying positive. Whenever my name is called, I’ll try my best to be prepared and play the best I can because you never know what will happen." The Suns will start Eric Bledsoe and Devin Booker with Brandon Knight logging heavy minutes off the bench, meaning Goodwin will have to fight for limited minutes with Tyler Ulis and Leandro Barbosa. Booker (ankle) is questionable for Friday's game vs. Dallas, so Goodwin could get a long look.

Suns general manager Ryan McDonough said the team will talk about an extension with Archie Goodwin's agent later in October.

Goodwin is set to become a restricted free agent after the 2016-17 season if an agreement is not agreed upon by the October 31 deadline, but McDonough said talks will happen. "We want to see how it goes in training camp and preseason and then we’ll revisit it as a staff probably the last week or last 10 days of October," McDonough said. Goodwin will be stuck in a backcourt logjam to start the season, but is still worth a look in deeper fantasy leagues.

Archie Goodwin (ankle) logged 30 minutes vs. the Clippers on Wednesday, scoring 10 points with five assists, three rebounds and two steals.

Goodwin shot just 5-of-16 from the field without any 3-pointers tonight. He's a work in progress as a point guard, and Earl Watson has specifically pointed to defensive lapses as a hurdle to playing time. Eric Bledsoe and Brandon Knight are locked in as the Suns' backcourt of the future so it might take a trade for Goodwin to be a reliable fantasy asset next season.

Archie Goodwin (ankle) will play against the Clippers on Wednesday.

He wants to start next season, so this might be a big chance for him to boost his trade value. In 2014-15, Goodwin scored his season-high in the finale, so maybe he can do it again tonight. He'll be an interesting option in DFS against the Clippers B team.

Archie Goodwin (ankle) is expected to play against the Clippers on Wednesday.

There's a good chance he will be busy after missing Monday. Goodwin was terrific on Saturday with 24 points before spraining his ankle in the fourth quarter. He will likely get close to 30 minutes tonight, assuming he's close to 100 percent. Ronnie Price loses a lot of fantasy appeal here.

Archie Goodwin (ankle) will not play against the Kings on Monday night.

It's too bad because he was very good on Saturday. Goodwin was visibly upset after the injury in the fourth quarter and his season might be over. Ronnie Price will get a lot of minutes at the point tonight, so he's worth a look in a fantastic matchup.

Archie Goodwin (left ankle) is doubtful for Monday night against the Kings.

He rolled his left ankle in the fourth quarter on Saturday and did not return. Goodwin was playing terrific ball in that win, which took away from Ronnie Price. With Goodwin likely out, Price should be able to get more minutes again.

Archie Goodwin rolled his left ankle in the fourth quarter on Saturday.

The Suns were up 25 points when he left, so he's likely not coming back. Goodwin didn't have too bad of a limp as he went to the locker room and he might have been able to return had the game been close. He played very well in this game with 24 points, three rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers. Keep an eye on him in the final two games.

Earl Watson said that he wants Archie Goodwin to improve as a defender.

"It’s a challenge for Archie, but I think Archie wants playing time," Watson said of returning him to point-guard duties. "So this is a chance for Archie not to just focus on being a point guard and running the team but a chance for Archie to show how he can defend the ball." Goodwin is only seeing his minutes in the lower-teens, which isn't enough time for him to produce in most settings. Leave him on the wire.

Archie Goodwin was a DNP-CD during Friday's win over the Lakers.

With Brandon Knight healthy and Ronnie Price serving as his primary backup, Goodwin has fallen out of the rotation in Phoenix. At this juncture in the fantasy season, Goodwin belongs on the waiver wire in most leagues.
