Jordan Clarkson scored 18 points on 6-of-14 shooting with four rebounds, one assist, three steals and 6-of-6 makes from the foul line in Wednesday’s win over the Wizards.
Clarkson is flying under the radar as a top-75 and it’s not as much of a buy-low moment as it is a chance to steal from an owner that doesn’t recognize his value. He hasn’t had a breakout game and all the talk in L.A. is either about Kobe or D’Angelo Russell. His 47.6 percent shooting is probably coming down, but he hit 44.8 percent of his looks last year and it wouldn’t be surprising if he kept it over 44 on the year. If Kobe gets hurt or really tapers his minutes down, Clarkson will have upside beyond his current production.
