Utah Jazz, Jordan Clarkson Agree On Four-year, $52 Million Deal, Agent Says (www.espn.com)

has agreed to a four-year, $52 million deal to stay with the Utah Jazz, his agent, Rich Paul of Klutch Sports, told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Clarkson, 28, stepped up for the Jazz in the seeding games and playoffs after Bojan Bogdanovic was ruled out ahead of the NBA’s resumption of play last season.

The shooting guard averaged 16.7 points per game off the bench and shot 46.4% from the field in the Jazz’s first-round loss to the Denver Nuggets.

A dynamic bench scorer, Clarkson makes a healthy amount of 3-pointers, can attack closeouts and has flashed the ability to make plays for others. However, he has proved to be a liability on defense, which limits his ceiling to that of a role player.

Clarkson, a second-round pick in the 2014 NBA draft, has also spent time with the Lakers and Cavaliers. He holds career averages of 14.8 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game.
