GARY CLARK JR. (HOU)
#6•G. CLARK JR.
F • 6’8, 225 lbs; 2nd year, Cincinnati
NBA ROLE: (RAW) TWO-WAY FORWARD
The 2018 AAC Player of the Year, Gary Clark Jr. looks the part as an NBA-level forward; powerful frame: uses quickness and anticipation to a major advantage defensively - shot-blocker, doesn’t give up ground; true post game at the 3-4? - likes to bang in the post, score after backing down; kinda plays like a big: seals/catches/flushes if there’s room - produces dirty work paint points; good set shooter (primarily scores via the long ball at this stage), needs work on in-between attack, non-dunk finishing & playmaking; heavily slept on - scrapper: HOU needs depth at forward* - is Clark Jr. a factor in Mike D’Antoni’s lineup?
*could also see time as a small ball 5?
