Wizards Re-Sign Drew Gooden

July 13, 2015

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Washington Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld announced today that the team has re-signed forward Drew Gooden. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
"Drew has been an important part of our success the last two years and we are pleased to welcome him back," said Grunfeld. "His skills, leadership and outside shooting will continue to add value to our front court rotation."
Gooden appeared in 51 games (seven starts) for Washington last season. The 6-10 forward averaged 5.4 points and 4.4 rebounds while shooting .390 from three-point range in 16.6 minutes per game. The 13-year veteran tallied 13 games of 10+ points, scored a season-high 18 points at Miami on 10/29 and recorded two double-doubles. He had five games with at least 10 rebounds and pulled down a season-high 17 caroms vs. Charlotte on 3/27. The former Kansas Jayhawk averaged 9.7 points and 7.1 rebounds in his seven starts for the Wizards this season.
In 10 playoff appearances last season, Gooden averaged 6.8 points, 5.5 rebounds and in 17.8 minutes per game.  He originally signed a 10-day contract with the Wizards on February 26, 2014 and then signed a second 10-day on March 8 before signing for the remainder of the season on March 18.
