HoopsHype Ian Clark rumors

July 22, 2014 Updates

Utah brass have some roster decisions to make by Aug. 1. The contracts of guard Ian Clark (fully) and forward Erik Murphy (partially) will become guaranteed after the end of this month. The Jazz’s plans are not set in stone for either player yet, and likely won’t be until the day of the decision. Utah has 11 players under contract for 2014-15, including latest signee Trevor Booker, but sources indicate that management still wants to bring in another guard and/or wing via free agency.

Tuesday was the deadline to cut players on nonguaranteed contracts before those deals become fully guaranteed for the season, so the Jazz opted to whittle their maxed-out roster to 14 players. That left Harris looking for a new gig, while point guard Diante Garrett and shooting guard Ian Clark survived the cut. “To his credit, he did everything we asked him to do,” Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin said. “Great locker room guy, great teammate for the guys. It’s just unfortunate it’s part of the business that we had to make a decision.” Deseret News

Bill Oram: I'm curious to see what happens with Ian Clark. Jazz guard was brought in to make team, but hasn't been overwhelming in first week. Sounds like he may just be pressing a little bit. Which is understandable for an undrafted rookie trying to make an impression. However, I don't think there is much risk the Vegas SL MVP gets cut. He would have to be lousy to get waived. He hasn't been that. Twitter @tribjazz
