Gary Clark 

Post#1 » by NuggetsWY » Fri Mar 26, 2021 12:39 am

He's been called a power forward - at 6'6" & 230 lbs, that seems unlikely. But he reportedly works hard and does his best. So no doubt if told to play PF, he would have.

He's mostly called a small forward and that seems to fit IMO. This is his 3rd year and the worst shooting percentages of his career. No doubt the team he's playing on can affect that - and Orlando has been struggling (especially due to injuries and such).

We'll probably have to wait a while to see how he fits in Denver.

He has decent size/mass but the most interesting thing for me...his non-guaranteed contract. ORL fans do say he has some defensive prowess, so there is something to look for.

Torrey Craig clone, maybe?

Looks like PJ Tucker is going to get bought out, would you swap him out for Clark ?

I think P.J. Tucker is part of the plan in Milwaukee. Where did you hear he may be bought out?

Read on Twitter


Maybe a bit presumptuous, but makes sense

The Rockets traded him a few days ago, he is in Milwaukee now.

I think Clark is just going to be a deep bench guy to see what we can get out of him by the end of the season.

Absolutely I'd take Tucker over Clark. I don't expect Clark to get many appearances, much less minutes. Tucker may not get many minutes either, but he'd get more appearances and he brings a whole lot more experience plus he's a vocal leader - IMO we could use his defense

Clark doesn't score much but he did average over 18 minutes a game for the Magic. He's a vet that might have some spot usage and our bench is still trying to work out the issue
