Steve Clarke, who lives in Norway, first visited the museum by himself while his son was practicing at the FedExForum on Dec. 14. But after going on the tour, he was excited to tell his son about his trip and suggested Brandon attend when he had the time. “I said, ‘This museum is around the people you are around every single day, and it’s part of you as well,’ ” said Steve Clarke. “ ‘Although I am not African American, I am of Jamaican descent, so that is the same thing. They paved for you to get here, otherwise it would not have worked out for me or you.’ ”
The Clarkes spent nearly two hours at the museum. The Grizzlies forward said the exhibit on slavery touched him the most. His father added Clarke was stunned about how poorly African Americans were treated and made a point to talk to his son about the importance of freedom. “He stayed for everything. Watched everything and listened to everything. I was really happy to see that he was interested to see that,” Steve Clarke said. “I felt good about it. I didn’t know if he really wanted to see anything like that. That is not something we really talk about on a regular basis.”
The Grizzlies face an interesting decision on Bruno Caboclo, whose $300,000 guarantee becomes full next week. He has played sparingly and seems stuck on the depth chart behind young aces Jaren Jackson Jr. and Brandon Clarke. The Grizzlies might appreciate an open roster spot heading into the trade deadline, especially since any Andre Iguodala deal would likely involve taking back multiple contracts to achieve a salary match on his $17.1 million.
