Goodwin agreed to a contract Thursday with the G League's Maine Red Claws.
Goodwin previously attended training camp with the Red Claws but was unable to secure a roster spot. After a brief stint in the Chinese Basketball Association, the 2013 first-round pick will return to North America to provide Maine with some extra backcourt depth. Goodwin hasn't appeared at the NBA level since 2016-17, and the fact that he was cut from the G League squad earlier this season doesn't bode well for his chances of resurfacing at basketball's top level.
Goodwin supplied 10 points (4-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and two steals across 22 minutes during the Trail Blazers' 91-73 win over the Lakers in the Las Vegas Summer League championship game Tuesday.
Goodwin consistently made his case as a potential backcourt rotation piece for the coming season during his time in Las Vegas. The 23-year-old -- who already boasts four seasons of NBA experience -- averaged 9.5 points (on 55.0 percent shooting), 2.8 rebounds and 1.0 assist across 14.3 minutes over six summer league games, displaying the same accurate shooting he flashed during the 2016-17 season, his most recent NBA campaign. Goodwin will now await word on whether his efforts convinced the Trail Blazers or another squad to issue him a training camp invite.
Goodwin totaled 21 points (4-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 14-16 FT), two assists, one rebound and one steal in 19 minutes during Monday's 97-92 summer league victory over the Grizzlies.
Goodwin, who was waived by the Trail Blazers last season, provided a scoring punch off the bench in Monday's semi-final victory. He was able to get to the basket with ease and the Grizzlies only option was apparently to foul him every time, sending him to the free-throw line 16 times. He is merely trying to get a look in as a rotation guy at this stage and that still seems like a stretch.
Goodwin has been added to the Blazers' summer league roster, Mike Scotto of Basketball Insiders reports.
The former first-round pick did not play in the NBA last season, but he spent time with the Blazers' in training camp and appeared in five preseason games for the team before being waived prior to the regular season.
Goodwin amassed 20 points (9-14 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT), nine rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block during Friday's 135-116 road win over Texas.
The former Kentucky guard passed the 20-point mark for the fourth straight game while missing a double-double performance by one rebound. Aside from Friday, Goodwin has recently lived at the charity strip, attempting an average of over 12 shots per game during his last five contests. In addition, the 23-year-old is averaging better overall numbers than the last two seasons with 19.0 points and 5.9 rebounds for Northern Arizona this season.
