    Suns assign Archie Goodwin to the D-League

    I'm not sure if this is a good move if he's playing for an extended period in the D-League. Only time will tell.

    The Suns assigned the rookie combo guard to their D-League affiliate, the Bakersfield Jam, for what is expected to be a two-game stay.

    "We feel like it's crucial for Archie to get experience, to stay sharp. There's only so much you can do in practice, especially this time of year when we're not practicing as frequently," GM Ryan McDonough said. "Where we are as a team is a little different than where most people expected us to be halfway through the season, so we feel like it's critical for our future and for Archie's future to have him keep playing in game action."

    Well that makes a bit more sense. McDonough just wants to keep him active and getting plenty of minutes.

    Goodwin will join the Bakersfield Jam for Friday night and Saturday night games and then rejoin the Suns on Sunday in Cleveland for the first game of a four-city trip. He only misses one Suns game — at home Friday vs. Washington

    A tireless worker, Goodwin is in the gym every day, sometimes twice a day, including on non-game and practice days with player development coach Irving Roland and basketball operations intern Chris Darnell.
    I really like his work ethic and attitude. It may take a while, but Archie should develop into a really good player.

    Hope he dominates, or at least have two solid games

    He really should dominate with his speed and driving ability. Depends on how many jumpers he takes, and whether he predominantly plays PG or SG (preferably the latter).

    Good shooting practice. Hopefully he keeps it up and develops some consistency. Great job at getting to the line. I wish he gets a Paul George-like growth spurt over the summer lol.

    He needs to work on his FG percentage. But impressive that he got to the line so much
