While most fans focused on the selection of Julius Randle with the seventh overall pick in the NBA Draft and rightfully so, picking Jordan Clarkson in the second round could turn out to be just as important.
Clarkson was arguably the best player on the Lakers Summer League team and his impressive play has continued as he dominated at the OVO Bounce Tourney yesterday, including this impressive dunk courtesy of Forever Yonge:
The Missouri product finished with 35 points in the game and according to onlookers, outplayed first round picks such as Noah Vonleh of the Charlotte Hornets and Tyler Ennis of the Phoenix Suns.
He also provided another highlight during warm-ups, making dunks look easy courtesy of Lakerholicz:
While Clarkson has yet to officially sign with the Lakers, it is only a matter of time before the Lakers lock him down. By the looks of things so far, the Lakers may have found themselves a gem.
