Goodwin largely struggled to field interest last season, though he spent short stints with both the Nets and Pelicans. Between the two organizations, he played in just 15 games, while averaging 7.3 points, 1.9 rebounds and 1.6 assists across 14.3 minutes. After being waived by Brooklyn in July, Goodwin struggled to find a suitor this offseason once again and will have to settle for a training camp deal in Portland. He'll need to have a strong showing throughout camp and the preseason to have any chance at making the regular-season roster, but at this point he's just a long-shot.
Goodwin was waived by the Nets on Friday.
Goodwin, who signed the first of two 10-day deals with the team on March 15, was let go by the Nets on Friday after appearing in 12 games last season. In those games, he posted 7.9 points, 2.3 boards and 1.9 assists across 15.4 minutes per game. His release may be a result of Brooklyn trading for wing Allen Crabbe, who projects to see near-starter's minutes, just several days prior.
Goodwin totaled 20 points (7-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 6-10 FT), seven rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block across 29 minutes during a 112-73 loss to the Bulls on Wednesday.
Goodwin's 20 points off the bench marked a season high and a team high as the team held out several players. He was able to have his best game of the season in the finale, as the seven boards, four dimes, 29 minutes received and 11 field goal attempts were all season highs well.
With Goodwin's second 10-day deal with the Nets set to expire Monday, the team decided that they had seen enough from the 22-year-old to make a longer-term commitment. He's averaged 6.6 points and 1.9 assists while shooting 57.1 percent from the field in his seven appearances for the Nets, and will give the team another intriguing asset to develop with the team forfeiting its lottery pick this summer. Goodwin's contract will include guarantee dates for next season, so it's not necessarily a lock that he'll remain with the Nets for all of 2017-18.
Goodwin's initial pact is due to expire after Friday's game against the Wizards, but the 22-year-old has shown the Nets enough over his week and a half with the team to warrant another deal. Despite seeing only 13.3 minutes per game over three appearances, Goodwin is filling the stat sheet with marks of 8.7 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.7 assists, while shooting 58.8 percent from the field. The 22-year-old's talent has never been in question, and if he can display more consistent shooting over the second 10-day deal, he could be signed through the remainder of the season.
