The Utah Jazz’s decision to clean up the shop and trade its two superstars to Donovan Michell and Rudy Gobert had a ripple effect on the rest of the roster.

While at one point it made sense to have a group of veterans capable of filling the holes that Mitchell and Gobert simply couldn’t, their exit means Utah can clean the house entirely.

Jordan Clarkson is one of the strongest offensive threats in the NBA today. He earned 2021 Sixth Man of the Year honors and is coming off a campaign that saw him average 16 points per game on 41.9% shooting from the field and 31.8% shooting from the field. of three.

Naturally, there is no shortage of potential suitors for his services.

As reported by Sports Illustrated’s Brett Siegelthere are currently four teams with a genuine interest in Clarkson’s skills.

“After the departure of Donovan Mitchell, many in the league anticipate that the Jazz will seek to move Jordan Clarkson, Bojan Bogdanovic and/or Mike Conley before the trade deadline,” he wrote.

“Clarkson has generated the most interest so far with the Memphis Grizzlies, Milwaukee Bucks, Sacramento Kings and Toronto Raptors reportedly being teams with initial interest following Rudy Gobert’s departure earlier this offseason.”

In addition to those teams, the Los Angeles Lakers have also been heavily linked with a potential trade involving Clarkson – who started his career in LA

Needless to say, Clarkson took a step back last season. His points per game have dropped from 2020 despite playing more minutes; his shooting percentages have been declining for two years now.

That being said, he’s still precisely the type of offensive spark plug off the bench that could be hugely beneficial to a championship team. The Bucks and Lakers, in particular, could really use someone like him on the roster.

Clarkson would fit in well with the Kings and Raptors as well, but they’re so far removed from the title hunt that it’s hard to see what his macro impact would be.

And the Grizzlies have so much offensive firepower at this point that it’s hard to see where Clarkson fits into the equation.

Last week, a black horse trade suitor emerged for the services of Russell Westbrook. Obviously, if someone takes him out of the hands of the Lakers, the front office will go down that route. But if that potential pal falls apart, it’s hard to see LA giving up on Clarkson.

Especially if it comes with some of the other tracks that have been mentioned in a potential Lakers-Jazz trade.

Where will Clarkson ultimately play at the start of next season?

Time will tell us.
