“The Memphis Grizzlies today announced that guard Jordan Goodwin has signed a two-way deal. The terms of the agreement were not released, as per team policy. In a related action, Memphis waived guard Jacob Gilyard. Goodwin (6-3, 200) has appeared in 42 games (one start) and averaged 5.2 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 2.0 assists in 14.5 minutes for the Grizzlies and Phoenix Suns this season. The 25-year-old has averaged 10.5 points, 5.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists, and 1.5 steals in 26.5 minutes in two Memphis outings (one start) after signing a 10-day deal on Feb. 13.

On Gilyard, the Grizzlies wrote the following:

“Gilyard (5-9, 160) played in 38 games (14 starts) for the Grizzlies over two seasons, averaging 4.6 points, 1.2 rebounds, and 3.6 assists in 18.3 minutes. The 25-year-old Kansas City native, who went undrafted in the 2022 NBA Draft after his undergraduate career at Richmond, signed a two-way contract with the Grizzlies on April 8, 2023. He played 55 showcase and regular season games for the NBA G League’s Memphis Hustle, where he led the G League in assists per game last season and became the Hustle’s all-time assist leader this season.

Memphis has spent much of this season looking for components that could help them next season when Ja Morant and others return, and Goodwin might be one of those players.
