    Jordan Clarkson! Sorry LOF (Lin Only Fans) but I can't see Daryl bringing Lin back after he just gave up a #1 pick to get rid of him just two yrs. ago. Clarkson averaged more Pts. per game than Lin, rebounds, has a higher 3-pt%, he's younger and plays better defense....AAAAND he doesn't need the ball in his hands to be effective!

    Since Clarkson is a RFA and the Lakers have an enormous amount of cash to spend this year, I think if the Rockets offered 4yrs/$40M to $48M, I think the Lakers will think twice. Not only that but the Lakers just drafted their Point Guard of the future last yr. in Russell.

    It's only a curse if they breakup. If Clarkson puts a ring on it, lock him up for 8 years.

    Clarkson is an awful awful awful defender, but that might just be because he's only played for Byron Scott. He's really more of a combo guard, I wouldn't start him next to Harden but he could be good off the bench.

    Clarkson is a bouncy attacking mid range shooting PG. he can create which is what we need. He's 24 but idk if I trust hi, to be a leader on my team.

    James Harden is essentially your point guard next season. The Rockets will upgrade the position in trade or free agency if it makes sense, but the offense and decision making responsibilities will primarily fall on Harden's shoulders.

    If average more points to if I'd have started instead of coming of the bench. Might have something to do with total mins played.
