Goudelock had been hoping to secure a contract with an NBA team, especially after a solid week in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas earlier this month, but the LA Daily News reports that the offer from Russia was worth “Considerably more” than any offer he got in the states.

Goudelock was named Development League MVP last year with averages of 21.1 points, 5.2 assists and 3.9 rebounds in 52 games for the Rio Grande Valley Vipers and the Sioux Falls Skyforce. He played in only one regular season game this past season and started in game three of the playoffs scoring 20 points.

The Lakers decided not to take up Goudelock’s $1.1 million qualifying offer and make him a restricted free agent. He was extended an invitation to play for the Lakers’ summer league team however he believed playing elsewhere, the Chicago Bulls ultimately, would display his skill set and earn him a contract.

While Goudelock was one of the top performers within the Summer League he was not given a serious contract offer.

Here is to Mini Mamba and his time for the Lakers. Hopefully he will return to the NBA and find a stable home within another franchise next year.

Another day, another myriad of injuries for the Los Angeles Lakers.

After yet another grueling loss to the San Antonio Spurs in Game 2, the Lakers returned to Los Angeles today in danger of losing three more key players to injury.

According to the Lakers’ official Twitter account, Steve Blake is ‘out indefinitely’ with a moderate strain of his right hamstring:

After re-aggravating previous hip and back injuries in the second half of Wednesday’s game, Steve Nash is now ‘doubtful’ for Game 3:

Guard Jodie Meeks, who did not play in Game 2, will have an MRI this afternoon on his sprained left ankle. His status for Game 3 is also ‘doubtful’:

With Kobe Bryant out until next season, and this recent wave of injuries, the Lakers’ guard rotation may now be down to just Chris DuhonDarius Morris and Andrew Goudelock.

Stay tuned for any more injury updates as they roll in.

In wake of Kobe Bryant’s season ending Achilles injury the Lakers have contacted former guard Andrew Goudelock in hopes to agree to a contract.

Goudelock was drafted by the Lakers in the second round of the 2011 NBA draft. During his original Laker tenure he averaged 4.4 points for 40 games and shot 39 percent from the floor and 37 percent from three. After not receiving much playing time, he was given the nickname “Mini Mamba” by Bryant due to his competitive nature and willingness to win.

Goudelock was released before the 12-13 season but has since proven himself in the Developmental League. This season he has averaged 21.4 points, 4.1 rebound, and 5.8 assists per game while receiving praise as candidate for the D-League MVP.

With Bryant being out and the Lakers looking for more scoring Goudelock’s, eventual, signing could not have come at a better time. His style of play fits perfectly with what D’Antoni is trying to accomplish. He will also be able to relieve pressure of both Gasol and Howard in the post as he has a reliable three point shot and can heat up quickly.
