Pelicans agree to one-year deal with guard Ian Clark
The New Orleans Pelicans have to a one-year, $1.6 million contract with Ian Clark. Shams Charania of The Vertical first reported the news as the Pels added a much-needed sharpshooter to the roster.
Clark, an undrafted guard out of Belmont in 2013, played the past two seasons with the Warriors. He averaged 6.8 points, 1.6 rebounds and 1.2 assists while shooting 37 percent on 3-pointers for the World Champions last season.
Unlike point guard Rajon Rondo, added earlier this offseason by the Pelicans, the 6-foot-3 Clark is known for his ability to space the floor with the ability to hit long-range jumpers. A team built around big men Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins will benefit from Clark’s spot-up skills as a shooter.
