Welcome back, Archie Goodwin.

The Phoenix Suns recalled Goodwin from the Bakersfield Jam of the NBA Developmental League on Sunday after assigning him to the team just three days prior, on January 23.

The rookie appeared in two games for the Jam, averaging 29.5 points and 6 rebounds in 44 minutes. Goodwin scored 32 points and grabbed down 8 boards against the Sioux Falls Skyforce on Friday before tallying 27 points and recording 4 rebounds against the Reno Bighorns on Saturday.

Goodwin, just 19 and the league’s second youngest player recently lost his spot in the rotation due to the arrival of 10-year veteran Leandro Barbosa as the Suns look toward the playoffs.

In 36 games with the Suns this season, the shooting guard has averaged 3 points, on 38.3 percent shooting and 1.7 rebounds in just over 10 minutes per contest.

On November 19 against the Sacramento Kings, Goodwin dropped a career-high 16 points. Below are his highlights from the game:
