Goodwin will be the fifth played signed to a hardship exception by Cleveland.
Caught up in the kerfuffle of the Rajon Rondo news, according to HoopsHype’s Michael Scotto, the Cleveland Cavaliers plan to sign guard Brandon Goodwin to a 10-day hardship exception contract. Goodwin is the fifth player signed by Cleveland to a 10-day hardship deal.
Goodwin signed with the Toronto Raptors ten days ago to a similar contract. He did not play for the Raptors during that stretch. Goodwin will now join a Cavaliers team that is depleted at the point guard position with Darius Garland and Rajon Rondo both in league health and safety protocols and with Ricky Rubio done for the season with a torn ACL.
The former FGCU Eagle has spent the majority of this year with the New York Knicks G League affiliate, the Westchester Knicks. In 7 games Goodwin has averaged 15.3 points on 41.9% shooting as well as 5.1 rebounds and 7.0 assists.
