Jarell Eddie RumorsAll NBA Players
The Golden State Warriors have signed free agent guards Ian Clark and Juwan Staten along with free agent forwards Tony Mitchell and Jarell Eddie to contracts, the team announced today. Per team policy, terms of the deals were not released. Clark, 24, holds career NBA averages of 2.4 points and 6.9 minutes in 53 games over two seasons with the Utah Jazz and Denver Nuggets. Prior to signing with Utah in 2013-14, Clark spent the 2013 NBA Summer League with the Warriors, earning MVP honors in the championship game to help Golden State complete a perfect 7-0 campaign in Las Vegas. The 6’3” guard is the all-time leader in points (1,920) and three-point field goals (340) at Belmont University, where he was named the Ohio Valley Conference Co-Player of the Year as a senior in 2012-13.
Hammon is not an imposing presence. She stands just 5ft 6in, with hoop earrings and a ponytail, burying herself in a sweatshirt jacket while the other coaches wear shorts and golf shirts. But this isn’t about size or muscles spilling from form-fitting sleeves, but rather a matter of respect. The players Hammon is coaching this July loom like towers above her, yet they gather quietly around when she calls time outs the way they would Gregg Popovich or Doc Rivers. “We don’t look at it as female or anything, she’s the coach and we just listen,” Spurs forward Jarrell Eddie said Sunday afternoon.
“Bring the juice!” she shouted in the half-time locker room. This is her favorite phrase: “Bring the juice.” She says it often – in meetings, in practices and on the court during games. “Bring the juice.” Don’t slow down. Don’t drag. Don’t give up. “She’s intense, but she’s not a screamer,” Eddie said. “Bring the juice!” she shouted in the half-time locker room.
