The Vertical’s Shams Charania reports that the Nets are signing Archie Goodwin, called up from the Greensboro Swarm last month, to a two-year deal.
Goodwin’s deal will cover the remainder of this year and include guarantee dates for next season, league sources told Charania. His second 10-day contract with the Nets expires Monday. In seven games, Goodwin averaged 6.6 points and 1.9 assists, while shooting 57.1 percent from the field.
“[Goodwin] has an enthusiasm for the game, and we need his speed and athleticism,” Nets coach Kenny Atkinson told reporters last week. When he was signed, the Nets coach said the team needed “a jump” in athleticism.
Goodwin is the third D-League player called up and signed by the Nets this season, following Spencer Dinwiddie and Quincy Acy. He is, at 22, the second youngest player on the Nets roster. Only Isaiah Whitehead, also 22, is younger.
