Ian Clark Signs With Xinjiang

AUGUST 19: Clark has officially joined the Xinjiang Flying Tigers, according to Carchia.

JULY 30: Veteran NBA guard Ian Clark is set to sign with the Xinjiang Flying Tigers of the Chinese Basketball Association, a source tells Emiliano Carchia of Sportando.

Clark, 28, has spent the last six seasons in the NBA, playing for the Jazz, Nuggets, Warriors, and Pelicans during that time. His best performance may have come in 2016/17, when he averaged 6.8 PPG on .487/.374/.759 shooting in 77 games for Golden State in one of the club’s title years.

In 2018/19, Clark appeared in 60 games for New Orleans, recording 6.7 PPG on .394/.327/.892 shooting in 16.2 minutes per contest.

Assuming Clark finalizes his reported deal with Xinjiang, he’ll be one of a small handful of players who spent time in the NBA last season and are headed to the CBA for 2019/20. Ekpe Udoh is said to be joining the Beijing Ducks, while James Nunnally is considered likely to sign with the Shanghai Sharks.

    Surprised he didn’t get any offers. He was a decent bench player that could give you 20 minutes off the bench. The money must be better overseas.

    Always wiling & able to threaten a defense with faster pace but stays smart, doesn’t blow it. Better than his stats IMO. Seems like he could thrive in China though IDK the CBA.
