Jordan Clarkson will make just $845,059 for the 15-16 season, which won't become fully guaranteed with the Los Angeles Lakers until he is on their opening night roster.
“We know he’s going to be on our team next year,” Byron Scott said. “But we have to add pieces. There’s no doubt about that. I don’t think we necessarily are saying we’re building around him. But we’re adding pieces with him.”
The Lakers have believed to be on the market for a point guard this summer with options like Rajon Rondo and Goran Dragic available in free agency, but Clarkson could change that.
Clarkson was Rookie of the Month in the Western Conference in March.
