Now a free agent again, Clark is headed back to the champion Warriors.
Free agent guard Ian Clark has agreed to sign with the Golden State Warriors, league sources told RealGM
Clark will give the Warriors 16 players – one more than the regular-season limit – though James Michael McAdoo’s contract is just $100,00 guaranteed and Chris Babb’s is unguaranteed.
Clark’s guarantee will say a lot about how much the Warriors value him. Given their impending luxury-tax bill, they’ll be especially reluctant to waive players with guaranteed salaries. Any guarantee would give Clark a leg up on Babb in a potential training-camp battle, and if the guarantee is big enough, it could put put Clark ahead of McAdoo, too.
Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson are obviously excellent 3-pointer shooters, but Golden State could use another outside threat off the bench. Clark, who made 43% of his 3-pointers in four years at Belmont and 38% professionally between the NBA and D-League, would fit the bill.
