JULY 8th, 8:25pm: The signing is official, the team announced in a press release.
JULY 7th, 8:01pm: The Warriors and free agent Ian Clark have agreed to a deal that will see the player remain with the team, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports (via Twitter). It will be a one-year contract that is fully guaranteed, Charania notes. The scribe didn’t relay the amount of the pact, but it is more than likely a minimum salary affair.
The team had passed on tendering the shooting guard a qualifying offer worth $1,215,696, which made Clark an unrestricted free agent. There has been virtually no chatter connecting Clark to other teams, so it appears that Golden State declining to make him a restricted free agent didn’t hurt its chances to retain the player.
Clark averaged 3.6 points, 1.0 rebound and 1.0 assist in 8.8 minutes per game last season for the Warriors. He shot .441/.357/.824 from the field.
