Clark re-signed on a one-year deal with the Warriors on Thursday, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports. Clark will remain in the bay for at least one more season after spending last season as a deep reserve off the Warriors bench. Clark averaged 3.6 points over 8.8 minutes per outing in a career-high 66 games this past season. His role isn't likely to change next season, as the Warriors will have a tough time splitting minutes between their vast array of talent, which will likely leave little game-action for the 25-year-old Clark.
Clark failed to receive a qualifying offer from the Warriors, making him an unrestricted free agent, Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. The Warriors extended qualifying offers to both Harrison Barnes and Festus Ezeli, while Clark and James McAdoo were the odd men out and will head to unrestricted free agency. Clark saw action in a career-high 66 games this past season, posting an average of 3.6 points over nine minutes per outing. The 25-year-old guard will try and catch on with a team for training camp in an attempt to make a regular season roster.
Clark (coach's decision) was inactive for Monday's 112-97 Game 5 loss to the Cavaliers. With Draymond Green (suspension) missing the contest but not eligible for the inactive list, Clark was selected to join Kevon Looney (hip) in street clothes. Coach Steve Kerr likely chose Clark to be one of the Warriors' two inactives in an effort to keep some bigger players active with Green out. Since Green will be cleared to play in Thursday's Game 6, Clark should return to active duty, though he'll struggle to see the floor outside of garbage time.
Clark (coach's decision) didn't play in Monday's 108-102 Game 1 loss to the Thunder. Clark has been dropped from the rotation the last two games with Stephen Curry (knee) now back to full health. Unless the Warriors lose another backcourt member during the postseason, it doesn't seem likely that Clark will see much court time.
Clark (coach's decision) was inactive for Tuesday's 124-117 overtime loss to the Timberwolves. With Festus Ezeli (knee) returning in Sunday's win over the Trail Blazers and Andre Iguodala (ankle) drawing back in Monday, the Warriors were forced to make a healthy player inactive for the first time in a while. That dubious honor ended up going to Clark, who had appeared in each of the team's previous six games before Tuesday. Clark looks to be seventh on the depth chart at guard behind starters Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson and fellow reserves Shaun Livingston, Andre Iguodala, Leandro Barbosa, and Brandon Rush.
