“Playing the role he had with Golden State, where he came in and stretched the floor and knocked down shots, was something that really intrigued us,” Pelicans Director of Player Personnel David Booth said of Ian Clark. “When you’ve got guys like Jrue Holiday, Anthony, DeMarcus (Cousins) and Rajon, we needed floor-spacers. Ian’s ability to make shots is something that was really needed for roster balance. We thought he’d be a good fit with his shooting, especially when he’s on the floor with AD and DeMarcus. He’s a guy the defense has to respect beyond the arc.”
Much like when he’s on the court and has a wide-open look at the basket, New Orleans guard Jordan Crawford didn’t hesitate. After receiving a message from Anthony Davis regarding a multi-day meeting of Pelicans players last month in Lexington, Ky., Crawford immediately cleared his schedule, making sure he’d be there. “He kind of just said it straightforward,” Crawford related of the four-time All-Star’s plan to host a voluntary team gathering on the University of Kentucky campus. “But it came across like you could tell that we needed to be there, like it was something he wanted to get done. It was good that he did that, because even though he’s younger than a lot of players here, he’s the leader. He’s got to take on that role.”
If Anthony Davis becomes available — and the Celtics’ eyes are very much trained on him — Boston could throw together a package more compelling than just about anyone else’s. Irving would be an indirect part of that package. The NBA’s superstar class respects his ballsy showman’s game. (Ainge has long liked Irving more than most of his peers for some of the same reasons, sources say.)
