    But he was done mentally with the Rockets after the 2 injuries.

    I don't think he can be traded since he is on a Exhibit 10 contract, but I might be wrong.

    He was done mentally after the Tillman refused to pay him.

    Maybe Jeff B watched Clark play and thought, "Hey, I can work with this guy. Not bad. Not bad at all. The big stiff's not so bad, either. How much were you offering, Daryl? OK. I'm coming back!"

    He came in and stopped D Rose when he was going off on the Rockets during the playoffs. He shut down Donavan Mitchell as well. There was no player I saw that was to fast for him and his size kept him very competitive against bigger position players. Only player I saw that was too much for him was the Greek Freak but that's most players...

    except shooting.

    But your other points are on point. We are missing Luc more than we are missing Ariza.

    It's essentially Clark the individual but the media intended to make a Heroes for Hire thing.

    There is no Clark and Hartenstein duo.

    He's real good, hopefully we develop him in our system. His defense and shooting makes him very valuable to our system.

    Part of that is because through 6 games EG is shooting 22% on three so that’s dribing his avg way down but it’s also a super small sample. If you disregard the 6 games EG and jimmy are about the same. Which is saying something for jimmy imo.

    But eg also shoot 8-9 threes a game we’re jimmy shoots maybe 2-3 on avg a game.

    Mbah is an elite multi-positional defender, he stays super low to the ground and has good lateral quickness, which is why he's also a good straight line driver and good at attacking closeouts. He also knows how to guard bigs properly, many times fans don't appreciate players like that.

    It was very unfortunate that he got injured, and he would be very useful now for the Rockets if healthy which he looks to be as he's done fairly well with the Clippers in the minutes he's gotten.

    Clark can rebound. He's great at stopping drives as a help defender in the lane. He rotates quickly and goes up vertically. Shoots the 3 decently well and can improve his shot even more. He seems to have the mental make-up to be a really good role player. A quiet worker.

    Really impressed with him so far.
