Phoenix Suns General Manager Ryan McDonough told that Archie Goodwin had asked to be traded, and when the team was unable to move him before Monday’s roster deadline they waived him instead. “Not that these decisions are ever easy,” McDonough said, according to the report. “We felt like we got down to 16 really good, quality NBA players. Archie and his agents for the last few months asked us to accommodate a trade request. With that in mind, we told Archie and his agent we’d try to help him move to a team where he’d have an opportunity and play. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to work out a deal. This time of a year, it’s hard.”
Storyline: Training Camp Cuts
Suns guard Archie Goodwin was at the forefront Wednesday when he scored the Suns’ final six points, including a game-winning dunk that ranked No. 3 on SportsCenter’s Top 10 behind former ASU golfer Mathias Schjoelberg’s trick shot and a four-goal NHL debut by Scottsdale’s Auston Matthews. That still does not move Goodwin to the forefront of the Suns’ backcourt picture, where the depth also limited his chances in each of his previous three seasons. “I can only control what I can control,” Goodwin said. “I’m just staying positive. Whenever my name is called, I’ll try my best to be prepared and play the best I can because you never know what will happen. I’ll stay positive and be the best teammate I can. When I tend to focus on all the outside, it affects me as a person.”
He said he has kept in contact with P.J. Tucker, Eric Bledsoe, Devin Booker, Archie Goodwin and Alex Len. He called Friday’s return “different but not weird.” “I definitely had a great four years here with my teammates and the organization,” Morris said. “The last year ended kind of bitter but you live and you learn. I have nothing but good things to say about the organization. “It’s just like another game. We’re trying to get into the playoffs. It’s not about playing the Suns. It’s about us making a playoff push.”
