Just two days before they open the regular season, the Phoenix Suns reportedly made an unexpected move.

NBA insider Shams Charania reported Monday that the Suns have released shooting guard Archie Goodwin. The fourth-year pro averaged 8.9 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game for the Suns last season.

The 22-year-old Goodwin played collegiately for Kentucky and was selected by the Suns with the 29th overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft. 

The Suns will open the regular season Wednesday night when they host the Sacramento Kings at Talking Stick Resort Arena.
