The Warriors are probably planning for Damian Jones to compete for and earn one of the center-rotation spots and I would say that Looney is behind Jones, maybe by a lot. Yes, this minimum situation includes Ian Clark, who is extremely popular in the locker room and gave the Warriors some very good minutes this season, but he’s not getting $6M per, $8M per or I saw someone even sketched out $9M per for him somewhere. Clark is not getting anything like that. Well, not from the Warriors, at least. If Clark gets an offer from somebody else that’s anything like $6-7M a year, then the Warriors will congratulate him, make sure he gets his 2017 championship ring, and wish him good luck.
“Just having Kevin, all 30 teams would’ve loved to be in our position,” Clark told The Vertical. “At the end of the day, winning a ring is the same everywhere. We have such a special group here. We have to credit our front office for putting a team like this together.” Clark is one of several pending free agents for the Warriors who is relishing the season after signing a veteran-minimum deal. He’ll have a decision again in the offseason, and executives believe he could command a deal over the mid-level exception. For the Warriors, however, the template has been set: Sign a bargain deal, compete for a championship during the season and increase your value for the summer.
Storyline: Ian Clark Free Agency
A 6-foot-3, 175-pound shooting guard with average athleticism, Clark recognizes that his NBA longevity depends on his three-point accuracy. Miss beyond the arc enough times, and he could be playing overseas next season. Clark takes comfort knowing that, while a lengthy NBA career is far from secured, he is in the most stable position of his professional life. Three months after signing a guaranteed one-year deal for roughly $1 million, the former undrafted free agent is in line for a rotation spot.
