All-time greatest Utah Jazz players: No. 44 Jordan Clarkson

  • Seasons with the franchise: Two (active)
  • Regular-season games played: 93
  • Averages as a Jazzman: 16.5 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.2 blocks
  • Shooting percentages: 43.9 from the field, 35.5 from three, 87.5 from the foul line
  • Playoff games with Utah: Seven
  • Postseason averages: 16.7 points, 3.4 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 0.9 steals, 0.0 blocks

Flame Thrower.

As already one of the premier high-volume shooters off the bench in franchise history, Jordan Clarkson certainly has a shot to climb high on this ranking in years to come should the 6-foot-4 guard stay put in Salt Lake City. On the other end of the floor, however, his play leaves plenty to be desired.

Also, his green-light shot attempts can become a bit excessive on his chillier nights.

This season, though, in helping the Utah Jazz stay on top of the Western Conference standings, the 28-year-old is seen nationally as the top candidate for the NBA Sixth Man of the Year Award. Add in some bonus points as well for his being on track to set a Jazz season record with his sizzling 95.5 percent shooting from the charity stripe right now.
