The Grizzlies have signed undrafted rookie Brandon Goodwin to a contract, reports Jon Roser of the Memphis Grizzlies Radio Network (Twitter link). According to Roser, it’s an Exhibit 10 deal for Goodwin, which means he’ll likely end up with the Memphis Hustle, the Grizzlies’ G League affiliate.
Goodwin, who began his college career at UCF before transferring to Florida Gulf Coast, was named the Atlantic Sun Conference’s Player of the Year in 2017/18. For the season, the 6’2″ point guard averaged 18.6 PPG, 5.5 RPG, and 4.8 APG to go along with a .470/.275/.750 shooting line.
Goodwin wasn’t viewed as a top-100 prospect heading into the draft by experts like ESPN’s Jonathan Givony, so it didn’t come as a surprise that he went undrafted. Still, Memphis has had its eye on him for a while — the Grizzlies brought Goodwin in for a workout in early June, then added him to their Summer League roster. The 22-year-old averaged 12.0 PPG, 2.6 RPG, and 2.6 APG in seven games with the club in Las Vegas.
It has been a busy week for the Grizzlies in terms of roster moves. In addition to signing Goodwin, the team has also made three other moves since last Tuesday, adding Doral Moore to its camp roster and waiving Dakari Johnson and Kobi Simmons. Memphis has 19 players under contract after signing Goodwin.
