Gary Clark Waived By Nuggets, Expected To Sign With East Playoff Team 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Thu Apr 8, 2021 2:48 pm

The Denver Nuggets have waived Gary Clark.


Denver acquired Clark as part of the Aaron Gordon trade with the Orlando Magic.


Clark is expected to draw interest from Eastern Conference playoff teams.

Which eastern playoff team would even put Clark in their rotation?

The Celtics have Grant Williams and Luke Kornet in their rotation. How is Gary Clark any worse.

Actually if you ask me which Center I want for my perfect championship caliber team, I will chose Asik hands down

Well Kornet is only playing because thompson is still out. Plus he plays a different position so it’s irrelevant.

And while I don’t think Grant Williams is particularly good, he’s still better than Clark imo.

Gary Clark and Grant Williams are essentially the same player, except one was Undrafted and the other was foolishly picked in the 1st round.

Look at Gary Clark’s shooting numbers. Look at the same for Grant Williams. They’re not even remotely close and that’s supposed to be Clark’s strength. Plus Williams is better at everything else.

I get the feeling this is agent spin and Clark will be unemployed for the rest of the season. He’s awful
