Brooklyn guard Archie Goodwin is finalizing a two-year contract to remain with the Nets, league sources told The Vertical.
Goodwin’s deal will cover the remainder of this year and include guarantee dates for next season, league sources said. His second 10-day contract with the Nets expires Monday. In seven games for the Nets, Goodwin has 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.
Brooklyn has found some production in free agency this season, signing Quincy Acy on Jan. 30 to a two-year deal worth $1.8 million for this season, and guard Spencer Dinwiddie to a three-year deal on Dec. 8.
Goodwin has played four NBA seasons with Phoenix, New Orleans and Brooklyn. He was the 29th overall pick in the 2013 NBA draft out of Kentucky.
