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.

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.

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.
