Goodwin agreed Tuesday with the Hawks on a two-year standard NBA contract, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Goodwin had occupied one of the Hawks' two two-way spots, but he'll gain a little more security now that Atlanta has opted to add him to the 15-man roster. The second-year pro typically plays a minor role when both Trae Young and Jeff Teague are healthy, but he's been an excellent producer off the bench on a per-minute basis. Over 25 appearances with Atlanta, Goodwin is averaging 6.9 points, 2.4 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 0.9 three-pointers in 13.6 minutes.
Goodwin scored 21 points (7-15 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 4-4 FT) while adding four assists, two rebounds and a block in 28 minutes off the bench during Friday's 112-107 loss to the Celtics. With Trea Young (ankle) out of action, Jeff Teague got the start at point guard, but it was Goodwin who took advantage of the available opportunities by tying the career high in scoring he set Dec. 30 in Orlando. The second-year guard isn't seeing the kind of minutes or usage that would lead to consistent fantasy value, but he should be on the DFS radar if Young misses any additional time.
Goodwin chipped in with 11 points (4-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds and five assists in 24 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 123-100 loss at Dallas. Goodwin outplayed Jeff Teague despite playing four fewer minutes in this game, and while the veteran might get the starting nod Monday against the Celtics if Trae Young (ankle) is unable to feature, Goodwin could still see decent minutes as the team's backup point guard if the former doesn't happen. The second-year guard is only averaging 9.0 points and 2.4 assists in 16.0 minutes over his last five appearances off the bench.
Goodwin furnished 19 points (6-14 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three rebounds and three assists across 20 minutes in the Hawks' 102-95 win over the Clippers on Wednesday. Jeff Teague got the start at point guard in place of Trae Young (thigh), but Goodwin considerably outperformed his veteran teammate. The 24-year-old hit double digits in the scoring column for the first time since Jan. 10, with the fact he put up a career-high number of shot attempts helping his cause in Atlanta's comeback win. Goodwin could be in for another solid allotment of minutes off the bench Friday against the Thunder if Young remains out for that contest.
Goodwin will come off the bench Tuesday against the Suns, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports. With Trae Young (hamstring) back in the lineup after a one-game absence, Goodwin will resume his usual bench role. In 10 appearances off the pine, he's averaging 6.7 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 12.2 minutes.
