Grizzlies To Sign Jordan Goodwin To 10-Day Deal

The Memphis Grizzlies are planning to sign guard Jordan Goodwin to a 10-day contract, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.Jordan Goodwin

Goodwin, 25, is 6-foot-3 and was traded by the Phoenix Suns to the Brooklyn Nets as part of the deal centered on forward Royce O’Neale last week. He was then waived by the Nets.

Interestingly, that trade also involved the Grizzlies.

He appeared in 40 games with the Suns this season, averaging 5.0 points, 2.9 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 0.6 steals, shooting 39 percent from the field and 29 percent on 3-pointers. 

Goodwin spent the first two years of his career with the Washington Wizards — and looked good last season in playing 62 games and averaging 6.6 points and 3.3 rebounds. He was traded to the Suns as part of the Bradley Beal deal over the summer.

The Grizzlies (18-35) are in the midst of a lost season following the suspension of and then season-ending injury to star point guard Ja Morant. That being the case, Goodwin is likely to get a real opportunity in Memphis.
