The Jazz were determined to re-sign Clarkson after a great season as he put up 15.6 ppg, and 2.8 rpg. Clarkson is looked at as a spark plug off the bench and runs that unit for Utah.
He solidified himself as a mere second option aiding Mitchell in his efforts to will the Jazz past the Nuggets in their seven-game playoff series. Utah has relied on Clarkson on many occasions as he cemented himself as a piece in the rotation this past season.
We saw stints of him being a reliable scorer in the playoffs as his numbers jumped up to 16.7 ppg, 3.1 rpg, 2.8 apg on 46% shooting from the field. Clarkson rejoins a powerful bench with Joe Ingles, Udoka Azubuike, Georges Niang, and now Derrick Favors who recently just signed a 3yr/$30m contract to return to his former team.
Clarkson poses as a great backup to Conley and Utah had to capitalize on bringing him back on board.
He will be worth every penny
