Grizzlies sign Brandon Goodwin to training camp contract

Brandon Goodwin

The Memphis Grizzlies have signed former Florida Gulf Coast standout Brandon Goodwin to an Exhibit 10 contract, according to Jon Roser of the Memphis Grizzlies Radio Network. The 22-year-old will probably be the floor general of the Grizzlies’ G league affiliate, the Memphis Hustle.

Goodwin averaged 18.6 points, 5.5 rebounds and 4.8 assists per outing in 2017-18 en route to being named the Atlantic Sun Player of the Year. The 6-foot-2 point guard was added to the Summer League squad after impressing team officials in a June workout.

An undrafted free agent, Goodwin earned a training camp invitation after tallying 12.0 points, 2.6 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game in the Vegas Summer League.

The Exhibit 10 deal allows Goodwin to receive a $50,000 signing bonus if he inks a contract with the Hustle once training camp ends. The Grizzlies also have an option to convert the deal into a two-way contract.

Goodwin possesses some playmaking ability and flashed good upside as a scorer in Las Vegas. The Hustle recently released Kobi Simmons, so Goodwin is a potential replacement for his backcourt role.

The Grizzlies also just signed former Wake Forest center Doral Moore and currently have 19 players under contract heading into training camp. Memphis finished fifth in the Southwest Division last season with a dismal 22-60 mark.
