When the Nets signed Archie Goodwin to a 10-day contract last week, coach Kenny Atkinson stressed the 6-foot-5 combo guard filled a lot of boxes. He is athletic, young. He has talent and upside. There was something else. “Played football in high school. I like that,” Atkinson said. “Maybe that’s old school. I keep telling [general manager] Sean [Marks], we need more football players.”
That’s why Goodwin does not look back on his Phoenix days, when his coaches included Jeff Hornacek. Still, does he see Thursday as a “told ya so” moment? “Honestly, no,” said Goodwin, who after being signed out of the D-League is more intent on sticking with Brooklyn — hopefully as a point guard. “I’m better at point guard,” Goodwin said, “because I’m way more effective with the ball in my hands. I’m not the best shooter in the world. I feel I am a pretty decent shooter, but that’s not my strength. Me with the ball in pick-and-roll situations, getting it on fast breaks, getting it to the rim, kicking it out to teammates, that’s what it’s about for me.”
