2017-18

2016-17

While the Kobe Bryant farewell tour dominated headlines in Los Angeles, Clarkson quietly turned in a productive sophomore season. The 2014 second-rounder averaged 15.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.1 steals per game, with much of that production coming while sharing the court with the possession-wasting Bryant. Clarkson, who converted 34.7 percent of his 4.1 three-point attempts per game, should continue to progress, though itís unclear where heíll fit in the young Lakersí offensive hierarchy. Under new coach Luke Walton, second-year point guard DíAngelo Russell should take on a much larger role, while Julius Randle, offseason pickup Luol Deng and No. 2 overall pick Brandon Ingram will need to get their touches. As a result, a significant jump in Clarksonís counting stat production probably isnít realistic, but with Bryant out of the picture, he has a clear path to starterís minutes at the shooting guard spot, making him a reasonable mid-round fantasy option.

2015-16

After being buried behind both Jeremy Lin and Ronnie Price to start his rookie season, Clarkson busted out of the shackles in the second half of the season to earn All-Rookie honors. For the entire season, he averaged 25 minutes a game in his 59 games, with averages of 11.9 points, 3.2 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 0.9 steals, 0.2 blocks, and 0.6 three-pointers, while shooting 45 percent from the field and 83 percent from the free-throw line. But, we need to look at what Clarkson was able to do when he was inserted into the starting lineup to get a real feel for his contribution. As a starter in 38 games, Clarkson played 32 minutes, averaging 15.8 points, 4.2 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 1.1 steals, 0.2 blocks, and 0.9 three-pointers, shooting 46 percent from the field and 84 percent from the stripe. Those are fantastic numbers, but they came along with a usage rate of 24.1, and with Kobe Bryant and Nick Young returning from injury, as well as the offseason additions of D'Angelo Russell and Lou Williams, it appears as though it will be hard for Clarkson to approach that sort of playing time again, barring injury. Still, we've seen what he can do when he's out on the court, and the Lakers would be wise to develop the backcourt combination of he and Russell, as that's where the future of the franchise likely will be headed.

2014-15

Jordan Clarkson was the 46th pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, initially selected by the Washington Wizards. The Lakers acquired his draft rights for cash considerations on draft night. Clarkson, a combo guard, played two seasons at the University of Tulsa before transferring to Missouri and playing his junior campaign there last season. As a junior, he averaged 17.5 points, 3.8 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 1.1 steals, 0.2 blocks, and 0.9 three-pointers in 35 minutes per game through 35 games. The 17.5 points per game he scored ranked seventh in the SEC last season. In summer league, Clarkson showed his potential, averaging 15.8 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.2 blocks, and 1.6 three-pointers in 31 minutes per game through five games. Currently sitting behind Jeremy Lin and Steve Nash on the point guard depth chart, Clarkson has the opportunity to see the floor this season, considering Nash missed 67 games and Lin 11 games last season. He's more of a fantasy prospect in dynasty leagues, given that both Nash and Lin are out of their contracts after this season.
