Warriors sign G Ian Clark.
He was with the Nuggets for Summer League and played well, averaging 13.4 points, 3.4 dimes, 1.6 steals and 2.4 treys. Clark played in just 23 games last season with the Jazz and only logged 7.0 minutes per night. He is likely just a camp body. Jul 27 - 3:00 PM

Ian Clark is hoping to earn a training camp invite from the Nuggets.

"Ian loves this stage," new Nuggets Coach Mike said. "He's more than just a shooter, which is why I like him. He's a guy that knows how to play, he can put the ball on the floor, and defensively I trust him." That's a strong endorsement for a summer league player, and it would be surprising if Denver doesn't invite him to camp if we're reading between the lines.

Denver claimed Ian Clark off waivers on Saturday.

The Jazz waived him on Thursday to clear a spot for Chris Johnson, but he wasn't getting playing time with them. Clark is unlikely to be in the rotation unless the Nuggets rest multiple backcourt players.

Jazz waive G Ian Clark.

He hasn't been getting playing time even with the Jazz becoming very thin on the wing. Clark was the 2013-14 Summer League MVP, but it hasn't translated to NBA production.
Mar 26 - 8:03 PM

The Jazz have recalled G Ian Clark from his D-League stint.

Clark has suited up for a total of 22 games for Utah this season, putting in averages of 1.9 points per game on 35.0 percent shooting. He should not be owned in any league.
Mar 17 - 2:35 PM

The Jazz have sent down G Ian Clark for a D-League stint.

With averages of 1.9 points on 35.0 percent shooting from the field this season, Clark belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Feb 24 - 3:28 PM

Ian Clark logged 21 minutes off the bench on Friday, hitting 2-of-8 shots (including a three) for five points, two rebounds and four assists.

Clark is the only healthy shooting guard on the roster right now and he's a good bet to see 20 mpg at least until Rodney Hood (heel) can get on the floor. Clark can earn a few extra minutes if he gets hot from deep, and for owners in deep leagues that's what they should be watching out for.
Jan 3 - 2:49 AM

Ian Clark (ankle) returned to action on Monday, scoring seven points on 2-of-5 shooting with three assists and one 3-point bucket in 21 minutes off the bench.

Clark has a sweet stroke but he still has a ways to go as a defender and needs a few injuries in front of him to land on anybody's radar.

Ian Clark (ankle/patella tendinitis) is available for Utah's preseason game vs Portland on Thursday.

Clark is battling for minutes in a crowded, young backcourt in Utah. Despite his above average three-point shooting percentage, Clark does not provide much else. He is not worth drafting in standard league formats.

Ian Clark is listed as out for Monday's scrimmage with a sprained left ankle and patella tendinitis.

He is projected to be on the fringe of the backcourt rotation to start the season as he battles for playing time with Dante Exum and Toure Murry. Clark is a 3-point specialist after shooting 35.5 percent from deep last season but won't see enough minutes to warrant a pick in standard formats.

The Jazz will allow guard Ian Clark's salary to become guaranteed this season, by virtue of keeping him on the roster beyond Friday.

This means he'll start the season on the roster and he has a good shot of sticking throughout the year. Clark's 3-point range and improving skills elsewhere were the deciding factor here, and though he'll probably start the year outside of the rotation it wouldn't be surprising if he made some noise as an injury replacement at some point during the year.
Fri, Aug 1, 2014 09:51:00 PM

Ian Clark's contract for 2014-15 becomes guaranteed on Friday if he is not released by the Jazz.

Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey offered a "no comment" when asked about Clark's status, so it sounds like this one may come down to the wire. Clark only averaged 3.0 points, 0.8 rebounds, 0.7 assists, and 7.5 minutes in 23 games with the Jazz during the 2013-14 season, so it goes without saying that his fantasy value heading into 2014-15 is non-existent.

Ian Clark said he wanted to show he can play point guard.

The Jazz used him off the ball more often than not in Las Vegas, but he was still able to average 2.0 assists per game. Clark's game has been primarily making 3-pointers and he hit 1.4 per game in his 21.4 minutes of action. He has a chance to make the team, but it'll likely be as a shooting guard.

Ian Clark made 46 percent of his attempts from 3-point range and was the only NCAA Division 1 player to rank in the top 20 for makes while shooting over 44.5 percent from beyond the arc last season.

The Jazz decided to take a shot on Clark with a two-year deal on July 24 after his 33-point outburst in the Las Vegas Summer League championship game. Clark also shined with Miami in Orlando and was one of the bigger winners of summer league play. Utah is set on the wings with Gordon Hayward and Alec Burks, but the proficient shooting of Clark could help him make a case for minutes off the bench in his rookie season.
Sun, Aug 4, 2013 04:01:00 PM

The Jazz signed rookie shooting guard Ian Clark to a two-year contract, his agent told USA Today.

Clark was undrafted out of Belmont but lit up the summer league, highlighted by a 33-point performance for Golden State in the Las Vegas championship game. Clark averaged 18.2 points on 45.9 percent shooting during his senior season with the Bruins.
