Report: Goodwin may start season out of rotation

The Phoenix Suns have a plethora of shooting guards on the roster and once head coach Jeff Hornacek settles on his initial regular season playing rotation, there is a chance Archie Goodwin may not be part of it. From Gerald Bourguet of Valley of the Suns:

    "The 2015-16 season may be frustrating for Goodwin if he’s unable to prove his worth and earn regular minutes in the rotation, especially since he’s already lashed out about a lack of playing time in the past. But even with Bogdanovic potentially joining the Suns next summer, Goodwin still has time to stand out and force Hornacek to feed him minutes. He has to make the most of his opportunities when he gets them, but with Goodwin only being 21 years old and extremely motivated, it’s too early for the coaches, fans and even Archie himself to give up on this situation just yet."

So far in the preseason, Goodwin is averaging 19.3 minutes, while Sonny Weems is getting 21.6 minutes and rookie Devin Booker 22.8 minutes from Hornacek. Should Goodwin not get minutes early in the season, there is a chance the team will look to trade him.
