Brandon Clarke Rumors
12 Oct 21
Brett Dawson: The Darius Bazley trade is complete. Don’t know yet about his availability here at Summer League.
I’d love to hear a little bit about the feedback you have received during the pre-draft process so far. Brandon Clarke: Yeah! I’ve gotten pretty good feedback. I talked to lots of teams. I’ve just told them that I’ve been working on my shot, working on the things that they’ve wanted to see me improve. They all know that I’m good at, stopping the ball on defense. We all know that I’m pretty good at that. But they want to know if I’m going to be able to stretch the floor out more, which is what I’ve been working on really.
I’d love to hear a little more about your comfort now when it comes to spacing the floor. Brandon Clarke: Yeah there’s still obviously a big jump I can make. But as of right now, I’m pretty comfortable shooting it. Every time that I shoot it, it feels good. All that means to me really is that I’m going to keep on getting better and better and I’m really happy to get better too. I’ve been having lots of pride in getting my shot better recently. So just to feel it feel good when we are playing 3-on-3 or 4-on-4, it just shows that it’s been really comfortable.
Brandon Clarke: Getting invited to the green room at the draft was awesome because it’s confirmation that people see what I’m doing and they respect it and the type of player I am. My advice to any college basketball player with an NBA dream is to never stop working hard. Even if you’re going to a college that isn’t known or winning lots of games, you can still work hard and make it here. Being drafted is still dreamy.
