In three years, Filipino-American Jordan Clarkson has contributed decently in the Lakers roster. Although not considered by most as franchise player he has embraced and accomplished the role that was assigned to him by the Lakers franchise.
From being a point guard to moving to a shooting guard position and even coming of the bench, the 24 year old Jordan Clarkson has shown flexibility over the years and has shown a lot of upside in his game.
But, why is the Lakers considering trading him?
Jordan Clarkson is going to be paid 37 million dollars over three years, and with the Lakers wanting to compete in the free agent market in the coming years, they need to think of salary cap, especially since they are still shouldering salary of former Lakers Deng and Mozgov.
Which teams could take him and why?
Portland Trail Blazers - As a back up point guard to Lillard.
Oklahoma City Thunders - Clarkson played n Oklahoma in college and Westbrook needs a reliable wingman, Oladipo has been a let down.
Orlando Magic -Well just because they need some good man, they have nothing going on in the sunshine state.
