There were a few guys who shined during Summer League who ended up getting contracts to play in the NBA next season — Ian Clark and Elias Harris are among the names that immediately come to mind.
Andrew Goudelock, who played off and on with the Lakers the past two seasons and managed to pick up a D-League MVP trophy in between, wasn’t as fortunate.
After failing to field any NBA offers that entailed guaranteed deals, Andrew Goudelock has accepted a one-year deal to play with the Russian basketball team BC UNICS Kazan.
The offer is worth “considerably more” than Goudelock would’ve made with an NBA minimum salary worth around $1 million, according to a source familiar with the details. But exact terms weren’t immediately provided.
Goudelock was the fourth leading scorer in the Vegas Summer League, averaging 19 points on 47.1 percent shooting in 28.6 minutes per game for the Bulls in five appearances.
The issues with Goudelock are on the defensive end of the floor, where he’s historically seemed to give up points just as quickly as he has scored them.
