I've seen Clarke make some good inside-out passes too so there's potential there for more improvement as a playmaker but I don't know if that's ever gonna be a strength of his.
thing about Clarke is he's probably coming into the NBA at probably THE best time for a player of his archetype...multi-position defender who can guard out to the perimeter and protect the rim are pretty damn valuable players today, anything he adds offensively on top of put-backs, rim running and lob catching is a cherry on top.
he's essentially a sooped up version of Jordan Bell with a better head on his shoulders hopefully.
I don't Jordan Bell at all. I think he is a 3 and small ball 4. Bell had a better body. Clarke is 215 at his best. He is like Demarre Carroll in a lot of ways for me.
Lol you guys are hilarious, he doesn’t have a handle at all. He has good footwork and can get to the basket from the free throw line because he’s so athletic, but he doesn’t have a handle at all. He can barely dribble when he brings the ball up court. Plus developing a handle is the hardest skill to learn as a professional, otherwise it wouldn’t be so rare a skill because it’s the difference between someone being a good player or a great player.
