The Hawks have reached agreement with Brandon Goodwin to fill their remaining two-way contract, according to a person familiar with the situation. The Hawks have not announced the deal. The agreement was first reported by The Athletic.
Goodwin, from Norcross High, will spend much of the season with the Hawks’ G League affiliate, the College Park Sykhawks.
The 6-foot-1 point guard played on a two-way contract with the Nuggets last season. He appeared in 16 games with the Nuggets and averaged 1.4 points and 0.9 assists in 3.6 minutes. He appeared in 27 G League games with the Memphis Hustle and Iowa Wolves and averaged 21.3 points, 6.8 rebounds and 5.1 assists in 35.4 minutes. He played for the Nuggets entry in the Las Vegas Summer League last month and in four games averaged 18.5 points, 5.5 assists and 1.5 rebounds in 27.5 minutes.
Hawks general manager Travis Schlenk told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution in Las Vegas that his staff was scouring other plays in the tournament for the team’s second two-way contract.
Goodwin played collegiately at UCF and Florida Gulf Coast, where he was the Atlantic Sun Player of the Year in 2017-18. He went undrafted in 2018.
