Former College of Charleston star Andrew Goudelock was taken with the 2nd overall pick in the 2012 NBA Development League Draft by the Sioux City Skyforce on Friday.
Goudelock was waived by the L.A. Lakers last weekend just before the start of the regular season. Selected by the Lakers in the second round (46th overall) of the 2011 NBA Draft, he appeared in 40 games last season for the Lakers averaging 4.4 points and 0.5 assists in 10.5 minutes. Most recently, Goudelock played in six preseason games for Los Angeles where he averaged 3.8 points and 0.8 assists in 7.7 minutes.
The 6-3, 200-pound guard out of the College of Charleston played all four seasons for the Cougars, averaging 18.4 points, 3.3 rebounds and 3.0 assists in 32.8 minutes. As a senior, Goudelock averaged 23.7 points, ranking him fourth nationally among NCAA Division I scoring leaders.
Goudelock tweeted on Saturday morning "Ready for what's next...new goals, new mentality"
His new coach is excited to have him on board as well. Joel Abelson told the Sioux Falls Argus Leader "Andrew Goudelock is going to be the best player in the D-League to start the season," said Abelson confidently. "He's going to be dynamite. We look forward to him scoring a bunch of points and leading us to a bunch of wins before moving back to the NBA where he belongs."
