Three landing spots for the Utah Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson
The addition of Keyonte George with the 16th overall pick this past draft created somewhat of a log jam in the backcourt, him being added to the starting lineup this past week makes that log jam even more clear. The Utah Jazz are in a position where they have too many guards deserving of playing time, which seems to be part of the plan. Get assets and flip them for more draft capital.
Jordan Clarkson is the last man standing from the Mitchell-Gobert regime. He is seen around the league as a very valuable piece to add to contending teams. His recent contract extension makes him even more movable with a salary that is easily matched. Danny Ainge can even expect front offices of rebuilding teams to be calling his phone for Clarkson, looking to add the veteran to help lead their team into the next chapter.
While Clarkson may not be the most marquee guy on the market, he will still be valuable to front offices in all different stages of building their teams should he be made available. Danny Ainge has proven time and time again that he knows what his guys are worth and he will squeeze everything he can out of other General Managers around the league.
Let’s dive into a few of my favorite Jordan Clarkson trades.
