Clark signed a two-way contract with the 76ers on Tuesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Clark will join his third team of the 2020-21 season after he previously spent 35 games with Orlando and two games with Denver. The 26-year-old likely won't factor in much for Philadelphia this season as the playoffs begin soon, but he could potentially receive garbage time minutes if the team rests players in the final games of the regular season.
The Nuggets will waive Clark on Thursday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. A throw-in to the trade-deadline deal that sent Aaron Gordon to Denver, Clark never gained traction in head coach Michael Malone's rotation during his brief time with the Nuggets. He appeared in only two games following his acquisition March 25, playing four minutes in total. According to Wojnarowski, Clark is expected to draw interest from playoff-contending teams in the Eastern Conference once he clears waiver, but it's difficult to envision him earning a sizable enough role to gain fantasy relevance outside of the deepest of leagues.
Clark is not listed on the injury report ahead of Tuesday's game against the Sixers. Clark came over from Orlando in the Aaron Gordon deal, but he was unavailable for Sunday's win over the Hawks. The fact that he's not on the injury report indicates that he could be active Tuesday, though the Cincinnati product is unlikely to make much of an impact for a Nuggets team that has plenty of depth at the forward spots.
Clark is arriving in Denver on Sunday but won't be available for the team's game against the Hawks, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports. Clark was part of the deal that also sent Aaron Gordon to Denver, but he's not quite ready to join the team on the floor. The 26-year-old power forward isn't likely to take on a significant role with the Nuggets once he does become available.
The Nuggets acquired Clark and Aaron Gordon from the Magic on Thursday in exchange for R.J. Hampton, Gary Harris and a protected 2025 first-round pick, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Clark is a throw-in piece to go along with the headliner in Gordon, who will likely take over as a starting forward for Denver. Meanwhile, Clark will likely find himself outside of the rotation initially, which had been the case during the tail end of his tenure in Orlando. Clark had started eight straight games for Orlando at one point in February, but his opportunities began to dwindle once Al-Farouq Aminu was fully cleared to return from knee surgery. Over his 35 appearances in total with the Magic, Clark averaged 3.5 points and 3.2 rebounds in 18.2 minutes while shooting a grisly 30.5 percent from the field and 28.7 percent from downtown.
