VIDEO: Jordan Clarkson Gets To Work After Signing Contract

After acquiring the 46th pick in the 2014 NBA draft, the Los Angeles Lakers told the Washington Wizards to draft Jordan Clarkson out of Missouri. Another rookie considered a steal for the storied franchise.

Unfortunately, Clarkson had to sit and wait to sign his rookie deal with the team. Although he was the last player on the roster to sign his contract, the team and Clarkson agreed to terms earlier this week and the rookie immediately got to work at the practice facility in El Segundo, according to the Lakers’ Twitter account:

Heading into the 2014 NBA draft, the Lakers had an opportunity to bring a talented young player after the team secured the seventh overall pick following a 27-win season. That pick turned out to be Kentucky’s Julius Randle.

The Lakers were fortunate enough to land Randle at seven, but they weren’t done making moves on draft day. After drafting Randle, Mitch Kupchak and company got to work on trying to acquire another pick and were able to do so by buying the Wizards’ pick at 46 overall.

Clarkson could play a big role in his first year in the league as a combo guard under new head coach Byron Scott. Clarkson showed his ability to play both positions in the backcourt during the NBA Summer League and has likely improved his chances of getting minutes next season as a result.

      “We in here talking about practice. I mean, listen, we’re talking about practice, not a game, not a game, not a game, we talking about practice. Not a game. Not, not … Not the game that I go out there and die for and play every game like it’s my last. Not the game, but we’re talking about practice, man. I mean, how silly is that? … And we talking about practice. I know I supposed to be there. I know I’m supposed to lead by example… I know that… And i’m not.. I’m not shoving it aside, you know, like it don’t mean anything. I know it’s important, I do. I honestly do… But we’re talking about practice man. What are we talking about? Practice? We’re talking about practice, man. We’re talking about practice. We’re talking about practice. We ain’t talking about the game. We’re talking about practice, man.”

          Do you have ant idea what you’re taking about? I don’t.What does my occupation have to do with practice and fun Allen Iverson jab? What is dumb dumb dumb about it?

          • Al Haldie

            I did not know ANT IS NOT AND IDEA -WELL LIVE AND LEARN- THERE IS ALWAYS SOME ONE A LITTLE SMARTER .

          • http://www.foxhilldesign.com Josh

            Chill out. I typed that on my phone, and the “T” and “Y” are right next to each other. A simple typo is a lot different than your inability to spell or write a coherent sentence.

            I still do not have ANY idea what you were talking about.

          • Al Haldie

            Well , that’s for sure – that’s the only thing you said that makes sense…

          • http://www.foxhilldesign.com Josh

            I’m still waiting for anything you said to make sense. Can someone please help? I just have no idea what this guy is trying to say…

        • Derek Clark

          Lol talk to Josh when you can spell “you’re” the right way. Go back to English class.

          Did I mention you drop the “e” when you add “ing” in driveing as well or nah

          • Al Haldie

            I think that was meant for Jose he seems to know it all..

          • Al Haldie

            IM SORRY , IT WAS 1957 WHEN I LEFT HIGH SCHOOL – I MAY HAVE FORGOT A FEW THINGS – but I do remember we had some smart ass in school that thought – they knew everything, but of course you were not even a thought then, and now..

        • Lap Dance King

          STFU!It was 1986 that Ron Harper entered the NBA you puke learn you’re shit maggot because you sure are one stupid fuck.Learn english and stop saying Ron Harper is from Miami Of Ohio because he is from Ohio and played at Miami University other than that Jordan Clarkson is the next Kerry Kittles.Stop comparing him to Ron Harper douche bag.

          • Al Haldie

            Where did Ron Harper come into this and who said it SO lap dance king sit on it….

        • Judo Mma

          Bro, you go back to grade school to learn spelling.

          Learn to spell “driving”

          • Al Haldie

            I’m not your Bro -and you should go back from where you came from – and you should learn ENGLISH..

      • fatZach

        one of my favorite Iverson moments off the court lol.

      • gmoney

        It’s ok josh, I laughed at the AI reference lol

        • http://www.foxhilldesign.com Josh

          Gotta say I love that guy. He didn’t deserve that MVP and he wasn’t as good as people thought he was when he was in his prime, but he revolutionized the league with his style (and ink). Besides, I’m a little biased because I grew up across town from him, we went to rival high schools, and I got to play him in a 5-on-5 pickup game once.

    • http://www.foxhilldesign.com Josh

      Sorry, just couldn’t help myself…

      • Al Haldie

        That was dumb -dumb -dumb and dumb – Sorry, just couldn’t help your self…

      • Al Haldie

  • Lander Diaz

    Work, work, work that’s the way to go. I know this kid Clarkson is going to surprise everyone in his rookie season. He and Randle will put the Lakers in the right direction after Kobe’s contract ends.

    • JohnnyHomeless

      I think he is the WILD CARD in the Lakers roster. Everyone knows Randle will be good, if not now, eventually..and we have all seen Lin, Boozer, even other Lakers play. This kid could shock the league if given a chance…

  • LakersLifer

    Clarkson looks hungry and everyone on the Lakers team have something to prove and we will!

  • Henry Martinez

    Wishing you Jordan all the best! Am sure in due time you will shine in NBA.

  • Eroc

    We know he can make it to the rack. He needs to keep working on those jumpers – off the bounce, spot ups, step backs, etc. Oh yeah, and hope he’s working on his Defense. Can’t wait to see him in the regular season.

  • jay

    I wouldn’t mind the Lakers taking a look at Goran’s brother, Zoran Dragic.

    • Al Haldie

      He looks good !!

  • Brad

    Reminds me of Ron Harper when he was fresh out of Miami Of Ohio in 88.

  • Countin’AllDay

    Haters sleepin’ on our rookies

  • L4K3R5F4N

    Clarkson>>>Smart

  • Mick

    Jordan Clarkson is very consistent and has the focus needed to be a success in the NBA.He scored in double figures 34 out of 35 games last season at Missouri.He played Zach Lavine and scored 21 points and had 6 assists against UCLA.He had 28 points and 3 Assists against Andrew Harrison the Kentucky Harrison Twins.He is very skilled and he has a amazing first step that allows him to blow by defenders for easy baskets using his quickness he has great speed and he is hitting his jump shot.Plays hard and wants to win and he is athletic and long can’t complain considering he was projected as a first round pick but slipped to the second round a great selection by the Lakers.This draft will prove if Mitch and the FO have finally started drafting great players.

  • One Mic

    If Clarkson and Randle come out ready their first season then it’s possible we can make the playoffs. At times people need to progress to that level but with a coach like Byron Scott I expect them to at least be good enough to get an eight seed. The west normally has shocking developments like the trailblazers playoff run from last year so it’s not impossible for the Lakers to make noise.

  • LeRoy

    Keep working hard in the gym never take a day off.The NBA is tough to make.

  • MRBIGGK70

    Clarkson > Wiggins

  • Ric V. Avelino

    Practice makes perfect.
