HoopsHype Andrew Goudelock rumors

January 17, 2012 Updates

Unfortunately Steve got hurt that very game and Morris has quickly become the team’s second point guard. Fellow rookie Andrew Goudelock has made eight appearances for the Lakers but Coach Mike Brown has been clear that he only feels Goudelock is suitable in the role of off-guard. That means it’s Fisher and Morris for about 48 combined a night, a far cry from the inactives and DNP-CDs that Darius was racking up to start the season. “Patience, Patience is something I kept telling myself, especially being a rookie on a veteran-led team like this on the Lakers,” said Morris. “Their track record of relying on rookies to come in and play a lot of minutes is not really deep so you can’t get frustrated, you just have to control what you can control.” HoopsWorld

Talks haven't formally taken place yet since the NBA ended its lockout. But Goudelock's agent, Austin Walton, remains optimistic that his client will land a roster spot. "If everything stays intact with their roster," Walton said," I feel pretty good where he is in making the team based on the conversations we have had when he was drafted." Los Angeles Times

Finding a professional gig overseas. Should the NBA fail to reach a new collective bargaining agreement by then, Goudelock's agent, Austin Walton, said he will aggressively pursue those options. He has good reason to think that might happen considering the players union disbanded and the NBA formally announced it has canceled its games through Dec. 15. "There might not be an option if 30 guys sign from now and then. I don't know how people will react to the news [Monday]," said Walton, who represents Goudelock through Walton Sports Management Group. "We'll see. Maybe we'll have the options that we had earlier and we'll revisit those." Los Angeles Times

Despite fielding eight official offers to play for various teams overseas for a six-figure salary, Lakers rookie guard Andrew Goudelock won't accept any offer that doesn't have an opt-out clause, his agent, Austin Walton, said Sunday evening in a phone interview. "Those are the only ones we’d consider," said Walton, who represents Goudelock through Walton Sports Management Group. An opt-out clause would allow Goudelock to return to the NBA should the current lockout stop in time for a full or shortened 2011-12 season. Walton said three of those offers had opt-out clauses, including from CB Lucentum Alicante of the Spanish professional basketball league Liga ACB [link in Spanish] and from the Skyliners Frankfurt of Germany's Basketball Bundesliga [link in German], which recently signed Milwaukee Bucks second-round pick Jon Leur.

But even that provision won't guarantee Goudelock will play overseas, considering Walton's revelation that Goudelock remains more consumed with finishing his sociology degree at the College of Charleston first. "Drew’s focus is training," Walton said, "becoming the best player he can be and finishing his degree." Los Angeles Times

"At this point, we haven’t made a decision," Walton said. "We haven't ruled out [playing overseas]." Los Angeles Times

We are working the final stages of negotiation with both clubs.” HoopsHype

Andrew Goudelock, the Southern Conference player of the year from Charleston, has hopes of going from mid-major school to the NBA. He was the nation's fifth-leading scorer as a senior, showing the offensive firepower it took to possibly make it at the next level. The Harlem Globetrotters can say they got to him first, announcing the 6-foot-2 guard as one of their "draft picks" on Tuesday. It's fun and games, of course, but it doesn't just mean Goudelock can always don the flag-colored uniform if he ever chose to do so. It's also recognition that he's one of the more entertaining players you can find anywhere. "I'm going to score wherever I am, whatever level I'm on, because that's my game," Goudelock told MLive.com last week while working out for the Detroit Pistons. "I'm going to be able to shoot until the day I die." ESPN.com

Ryan Feldman: Word is that Andrew Goudelock may have a draft floor at 39 or 41. Could go as early as 27. NJ, Chi, Mia, Sac, Cha, LAL all in the mix. Twitter

Kansas forward Marcus Morris will be the headliner as the Bucks open workouts for draft prospects at the Cousins Center on Wednesday. The 6-foot-9, 230-pound Morris is considered a potential lottery pick and the Bucks own the No. 10 pick in the June draft. Morris worked out for the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday, along with Brigham Young's Jimmer Fredette and four other players. Also involved in the Bucks' six-player workout Wednesday are 6-10 forward Trey Thompkins of Georgia; 6-6 guard Anatoly Bose, a native of Kazakhstan who played two seasons at Nicholls State (La.); 6-3 guard Dwight Buycks of Marquette; 6-3 guard Andrew Goudelock of the College of Charleston; and 6-3 guard Malcolm Delaney of Virginia Tech.

Andrew Goudelock may win the award for most draft workouts this year. By the time the NBA Draft rolls around, he will have 17 workouts (the schedule is obviously subject to change). With all of the hype after his performance at the Portsmouth Invitational and the Nets Combine, almost every team has expressed interest in bringing him in for a workout. While early second round is most likely, it is very possible that a team in the late first round could fall in love with Goudelock and select him there. The Hoops Report
