The Brooklyn Nets are signing guard Archie Goodwin to a 10-day contract, reports Shams Charania from The Vertical.

Long after the Nets cut loose Luis Scola, they’ve finally found his replacement in the sharpshooter from the Greensboro Swarm. Goodwin has a difficult start to his NBA career after being drafted by the Phoenix Suns back in 2013, but he’ll get another chance with the Nets who are still without Joe Harris.

In 2015, Goodwin averaged 8.9 points, 2.5 rebounds, and 2.1 assists in 19.5 minutes per game — but he was waived by the Suns just before this season started. Soon after, he was picked up by the New Orleans Pelicans, but he only featured in three games before getting released back into the D-League pool again.

Goodwin has struggled as of late, so a move like this might insinuate that general manager Sean Marks has had his eye on the former Kentucky Wildcat for quite some time. Additionally, this will quell any fans’ hopes of signing R.J. Hunter out of the Nets’ D-League affiliate, the Long Island Nets, for now,
