Sam Acho Jersey

Most NFL players who are under contract but haven’t reported to training camp
by the end of business on Tuesday lose an accrued season toward free
agency Sam Acho
Jersey
, but Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon isn’t in that
group.

There was some question about Gordon’s status this week as he is on the did
not report list after he decided to work on his “overall health and treatment
plan.” Losing out on an accrued season would leave Gordon as an exclusive rights
free agent, i.e. not a free agent unless a team opts against tendering a
contract, for the second straight year. Getting the season would make Gordon a
restricted free agent.

Word earlier this week was that the Browns had taken measures to make sure he
got credit for the year despite not being ready to report to the team. There was
also a report that he’d be moved off the did not report list to make that
happen, but Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that there’s an exception for
players who don’t report due to “illness or hardship” that makes such a move
unnecessary.

That’s good news for Gordon’s contractual future, although it remains to be
seen when the Browns will get good news about Gordon’s availability for the
coming season.

Archie Goodwin is about to set a record.

It won’t be cause for celebration.

Goodwin is a veteran of 165 NBA games, has scored 20 points on 10 occasions,
and had a monthlong stretch with Phoenix two years ago when he started and
averaged 16 points per game while playing against a slew of All-Stars in that
span.

He thinks he’s proven.

The rest of the league doesn’t see it the same way. So he’s back in the NBA
Summer League – where, after scoring six points for Portland on Saturday in the
Trail Blazers’ 93-78 win over the Utah Jazz, he moved within 13 points of
matching Coby Karl’s record for the Las Vegas event. Karl scored 337 points.
Goodwin is up to 324, according to data compiled by RealGM.

”It comes with the job,” Goodwin said. ”My world is just different. I’m just
trying to stay positive and continue to fight, looking for a chance to show how
I can help a team.”

Saturday was Day 2 of the Summer League in Las Vegas, with a matchup between
No. 1 pick Deandre Ayton and No. 2 Marvin Bagley III headlining a 10-game
schedule. More 10-game slates await on Sunday and Monday, and the tournament
runs through July 17.

Most guys in Vegas are playing for the first or second time. Goodwin is
playing in the event for the fifth time.

Drafted No. 29 overall by Oklahoma City in 2013, Goodwin has gotten NBA time
with Phoenix, Brooklyn and New Orleans. He appeared in five preseason games with
Portland last season as well Nolan
Cromwell Jersey
, but doesn’t even have as much as a training camp
deal for this fall.

”I’m a resilient person,” Goodwin said. ”That speaks to how I was raised that
way, to never give up on my dreams. Hopefully the right situation pops up.”

Goodwin was one of the best guards in the G League last season, averaging 19
points on 53 percent shooting.

”I feel like I’m not getting a fair shake,” Goodwin said. ”But that’s how it
is. That’s my motivation. I’m going to keep knocking at the door and hopefully
someone realizes that this kid – I’m only 23 years old – can help a team and
bring a lot of value to a team.”

Charlotte’s Malik Monk (fractured thumb) and Philadelphia rookie Landry
Shamet (sprained right ankle) were both hurt Friday and will miss the remainder
of Summer League, their teams announced. The Hornets said Monk, a second-year
guard, would be re-evaluated in six to eight weeks.
