HoopsHype Ian Clark rumors
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
NBA summer league star and undrafted rookie guard Ian Clark reached a two-year deal with the Utah Jazz, his agent Bill Duffy told USA TODAY Sports Wednesday. USA Today Sports
"This is what makes this business fun is when you see someone work hard, take advantage of their opportunity, follow the script and position himself to create an opportunity in the league," Duffy said. "This is a great situation. All the credit goes to Ian." USA Today Sports
Clark, a combo guard at 6-3, is also generating interest from European teams, who may be able to provide him with more guaranteed money than NBA teams. "I'll sit down with my agent and family and talk about," Clark said. "I don't know too many details. But I want to make the right decision. "I'm trying not to pay attention to what I can't control. I just wanted to come out, play basketball and play well." USA Today Sports
