The Greensboro Swarm, the G League affiliate of the Hornets, announced on Thursday that the team acquired Archie Goodwin as a returning rights player.
Goodwin was waived by the Blazers in training camp back in October. The former 2013 first-round pick appeared in 34 games last season with Greensboro and averaged 17.3 points, 5.2 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.2 steals. Fri, Dec 15, 2017 10:14:00 AM

The Blazers have waived training camp invitee Archie Goodwin.

"We wanted to have an open roster spot," coach Terry Stotts said. "Being a luxury tax team -- this is probably more of a question for [GM Neil Olshey] than for me -- it's an added expense." Portland gives themselves added flexibility by keeping their 15th spot open, rather than retaining Goodwin, Isaiah Briscoe or Anthony Morrow.

Archie Goodwin has agreed to a training camp deal with the Blazers.

The Nets had to let Goodwin go because of the Allen Crabbe trade, so now he'll compete for the open spot left by Crabbe. Goodwin still is a major offensive project, but at least he is trending up as a shooter and his defense is more than serviceable. The 2013 first-round pick just turned 23 years old last month, so maybe it'll click for him in the next couple years. He's not a lock to make the roster.

The Knicks see Archie Goodwin as a potential free agent target.

After a mildly underwhelming summer league and the Allen Crabbe trade, the Nets waived Goodwin last month. He probably isn't going to be able to develop a jumper, but he could get on the floor for his defense and his dribble penetration. Goodwin figures to at least get a camp invite.

Nets waive G Archie Goodwin.

He had a solid summer league, but the addition of Allen Crabbe likely sealed Goodwin's fate. He has an NBA body and can get to the rim, but his lack of a jumper has been a thorn in his side for his career. He'll likely get a camp invite in October.

Archie Goodwin scored 18 points in a 96-66 win over the Pelicans on Monday, improving the Nets to 2-1 in the Vegas Summer League.

Caris LeVert was also terrific with 17 points, eight boards, two assists, one steal and two treys, but Goodwin finished a ridiculous +30 in his 20 minutes. He shot 6-of-9 from the field with eight assists, four rebounds, one steal, two blocks and two treys, outplaying both Spencer Dinwiddie and Isaiah Whitehead in this one. Goodwin is owed a non-guaranteed salary of $1.6 million next season, but he's making a strong case to make the 15-man roster.

Archie Goodwin scored a season-high 20 points in Wednesday's blowout loss to the Bulls.

The Nets were missing six players in the season finale and the Bulls won by 39 points, so this was a garbage time special. Goodwin hit 7-of-11 from the field and 6-of-10 from the line with seven rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal, and while the 22-year-old guard has shown a nice ability to finish around the rim, he still has a long way to go as a shooter. In his previous 14 games, he averaged 6.4 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.4 assists. He will need a strong offseason to carve out a role on the Nets in 2017-18.

Archie Goodwin scored a season-high 14 points in Tuesday's blowout win over the 76ers.

Not a bad way to celebrate his new two-year deal. Not a single starter played more than 23 minutes for the Nets due to the lopsided score, so there's really nothing to see here. Goodwin shot 5-of-6 from the field and 4-of-4 from the line with two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 22 minutes, but most fantasy owners can ignore him while Jeremy Lin is still rolling. Prior to Tuesday, Goodwin was averaging 6.6 points, 1.9 assists and 1.6 rebounds on 57.1 percent shooting in 12.4 minutes per game.

The Nets are finalizing a two-year deal for Archie Goodwin.

His 10-day contract expires on Monday, but his new deal will cover the remainder of the season and will have guarantee dates for the 2017-18 season. Through seven appearances with the Nets, Goodwin has averaged 6.6 points, 1.9 assists and 1.6 rebounds on 57.1 percent shooting in 12.4 minutes per game.

Archie Goodwin scored eight points with two assists, one steal and one block in 16 minutes against the Magic on Saturday.

Coach Kenny Atkinson went with Goodwin over K.J. McDaniels on the front end of a back-to-back set. There's a decent chance this is flipped on Sunday, but fantasy owners can ignore this development.

The Nets will sign Archie Goodwin to a second 10-day deal.

He's played in each of the last three games, averaging 8.7 points in 13.3 minutes. Goodwin may seem some added run if the Nets rest more players, but he's still not a fantasy option.
Fri, Mar 24, 2017 03:30:00 PM

Nets coach Kenny Atkinson hinted that Archie Goodwin will likely get a second 10-day contract.

"We’ve got to discuss it as an organization but I would say it’s trending very positive," Atkinson said. "And that’s not just from a basketball standpoint but from a culture standpoint. From the first day I met him, how he presents himself every day." He scored 10 points with five rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 18 minutes vs. the Pistons on Tuesday, but with Jeremy Lin (ankle) expected back, Goodwin will likely take a hit -- Atkinson said he's looking at Goodwin as a point guard.

Kenny Atkinson praised Archie Goodwin and KJ McDaniels on Tuesday and said they would "get some opportunities" in Tuesday's contest vs. the Pistons.

With Jeremy Lin (ankle) ruled out, Spencer Dinwiddie will draw the start but Goodwin will likely see extra minutes off the Nets bench. Archie made his Nets debut on Sunday and played 14 minutes after Lin had to leave the game due to the ankle issue. Goodwin could see 15-plus minutes on Tuesday. However, with Dinwiddie starting and playing the lion's share of minutes, Goodwin still belongs on waivers. McDaniels is averaging 17.5 mpg and that could continue to rise.

Archie Goodwin played 14 minutes with four points, two rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer against the Mavs on Sunday.

Jeremy Lin (ankle) got hurt and Spencer Dinwiddie got some early fouls, so we saw Goodwin for the first time as a Net. The Nets may get another look at him, but he's still not close to seeing consistent minutes.
Sun, Mar 19, 2017 02:45:00 PM

Archie Goodwin won't make his debut vs. the Knicks on Thursday.

Goodwin signed his 10-day deal with the Nets on Wednesday and did go through a full practice, but coach Kenny Atkinson said he won't play until Friday or Sunday. "He’s got to get his feet under him and hopefully in this 10-day period," Atkinson said. "Probably right, not the first game. Get a few practices under his belt we can throw him in against the Celtics or the Mavs and see where he is." If he impresses and earns a long-term deal, Goodwin could be interesting later in the season if the Nets start shutting veterans down.
