Earlier today, Archie Goodwin announced his career decision to the world, declaring for the NBA Draft after just one season of college ball. To some, the decision was surprising as Goodwin previously stated that, “I don’t think I’m ready to go. … If any of us were saying we think we should leave, then we’d all be delusional.” Of course, given the historically weak draft class, his decision isn’t exactly surprising. Such a decision has garnered attention from numerous national sources, one of which is ESPN’s Myron Medcalf. In a phone interview conducted with ESPN’s Cary Chow, Medcalf voiced his opinion on Goodwin’s departure, hesitantly calling it “the right move.”
In the interview, Medcalf further elaborated on why this was the right move, stating “[Archie] probably is not going to make any major changes in one off-season, from this year to next year.” Medcalf also covered a variety of other subjects in the video, including distribution of minutes on next year’s team, expectations for the newest recruits, and multiple other topics.
