The Atlanta Hawks will reportedly sign second-year point guard Brandon Goodwin to a two-year NBA contract, per Shams Charania of The Athletic:
Goodwin will sign tomorrow in Cleveland per the AJC’s Sarah Spencer, and he will make $522,738 for the rest of this season. He will make $1,701,593 for the 2020-21 season and at the end of his contract the Hawks will hold Early Bird Rights on him. $100,000 of Goodwin’s 2020-21 salary will be guaranteed, with the remainder becoming guaranteed if he is on the roster on Aug. 1, 2020.
Goodwin spent the first several months of the season on a two-way contract with the Hawks, splitting his time between Atlanta and the College Park Skyhawks of the G League. When it was clear the Hawks’ backup point guard situation needed addressing, Goodwin was brought up, taking over the backup role for a lengthy stretch in December and January prior to the trade for Jeff Teague.
Since then, the Hawks acquired Jeff Teague to serve as Trae Young’s primary backup, leaving Goodwin in something of a reduced role, but the former Norcross High School standout was still a frequent member of Atlanta’s rotation. In addition, there was room for the Hawks to promote Goodwin to a full contract after the team created a roster spot with its flurry of activity before and on the trade deadline.
