When the Lakers drafted Julius Randle, it was reasonable to expect that the Lakers were done with the draft. They weren’t. They spent the rest of the evening trying to acquire a second-round pick from another team. The Lakers chose to spend $1.8 million to buy that second round pick. That pick was used on Jordan Clarkson.
Who is Jordan Clarkson?
Jordan Clarkson is a 6’5″ combo guard from the University of Missouri. The junior year player is 22-years old. While that seems old for a junior player, he red-shirted his third year of college to transfer from Tulsa to the University of Missouri. There, he was able to work on his point guard skills.
