2013 NBA Draft: Oklahoma City Thunder Select Archie Goodwin With No. 29 Pick
Name: Archie Goodwin
Position: Shooting Guard
Latest Stats: 14. ppg, 4.6 rpg, 2.7 apg, 1.1 spg
About the Prospect:
Another one-and-done player at Kentucky, the 6-foot-5 Goodwin averaged 14 points per game last year to go along with 2.7 assists per game. For a shooting guard, Goodwin has good size and is excellent at driving to the basket and drawing contact. He may be young, but the potential is certainly there for Goodwin in a couple of years once he develops some of his skills.
About His Impact on Team:
Obviously, the Thunder will be one of the top teams in the Western Conference once again as long as Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook can stay healthy. As a rookie, Goodwin shouldn’t expect much playing time as he’ll be teammates with some of the most talented players in the league.
Still, if there’s any benefit to playing on one of the most talented teams in the league, it’s you get to learn from some of the best players–which is great news for Goodwin. The argument can be made that Goodwin should have stuck around for at least another season at Kentucky, but from a developing standpoint–the move could work out just perfect for the guard.
