Andrew Goudelock Named NBA D-League "Top Performer of the Week"

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

Andrew Goudelock earned his second consecutive "Top Performer of the Week" award in the NBADL, further cementing his case for M.V.P. as he aims for another NBA gig.

Earlier this season, despite playing like an NBADL All-Star, Andrew Goudelock struggled a bit to fully come into his own with the Sioux Falls Skyforce.

But just as NBA D-League competition propelled into the year 2013, Goudelock was shipped to the Rio Grande Valley Vipers in a three-team trade that shook the minor league. Fortunately for the guard, as eye-popping as the trade may have been at first, the move seems to now have made all the sense in the world for the former Lakers' rookie.

Goudelock has since emerged as an NBADL M.V.P. candidate. This past week, he only further continued to cement his case. En route to leading the Vipers to a 4-0 record, the guard earned his second consecutive "Top Performer of the Week" award in the minors. RGV is currently riding an eight game winning streak.

Goudelock averaged 29 points, 6 assists, 4 rebounds, and 2 steals per game during his most recent stellar stretch this week.

The change of scenery has clearly done wonders for him. Goudelock confirmed to RidiculousUpside.com earlier in the year that he believed the move was quite the favorable one for him. What's more, after initially joining RGV, the guard had also asserted that he had begun to talk to the Rockets and a couple NBA teams about potentially getting another big league gig.

That was then, and this is now. Things have since changed, but luckily for Goudelock, it's all been for the better. With NBA squads looking to shore up their rosters in time for the postseason, there's no doubt that the former Laker has been putting his best foot forward in hopes of proving he has what it takes to provide an NBA team with a worthwhile enough boost.

If he had only begun to get legitimate looks from teams earlier in the year, there's no doubting he's been doing enough to peak the curiosities of plenty of other squads who may soon be banging his door down looking for a solid contributor.
