Goodwin signs with Suns

(AP) - The Phoenix Suns have officially signed the second of their first round draft picks, Archie Goodwin, according to a team press release Friday.

The terms of the deal have not yet been released.

The Suns acquired the rights to Goodwin -- the 29th overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft -- along with Malcolm Lee from the Golden State Warriors in exchange for the 30th overall pick.

Goodwin, 18, played one season at the University of Kentucky, averaging 14.1 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.7 assists while earning Freshman All-SEC honors. He was also adept at driving the lane and drawing fouls: His 212 free throw attempts last season led the SEC.

A shooting guard in college, the 6-foot-5 Goodwin also may play the point for the Suns. He will compete for playing time among a backcourt that includes leading-scorer Goran Dragic, Kendall Marshall, Shannon Brown, Diante Garrett, newly acquired Eric Bledsoe and possibly Wesley Johnson, if re-signed.
