Scouting Report

OVERVIEW
Clarke will turn 23 years old in September, which essentially qualifies him as a senior citizen among NBA draft prospects. However, Clarke's age provides a benefit to NBA teams seeking a more experienced shooter to provide roster depth.
Last season at Gonzaga, the 6-foot-8, 210-pound Clarke led the nation with a 69.4 shooting percentage and 117 blocked shots. He averaged 16.9 points and 8.6 rebounds and was named first-team All-West Coast Conference and third-team All-American.
ANALYSIS
Other than consistency, size is the only real knock on Clarke, who has thrived as an undersized big man at the collegiate level and could find success in the NBA if he ends up in the right situation. Players such as Jordan Bell have thrived despite lacking physical marks that vault contemporaries to the top of the first round. But at 6-8, Clarke will have nothing given to him as a post player in the pros.
Despite lacking elite size, Clarke has proven to be a contributor and a winner wherever he has gone. He can guard as many as four defensive positions and works with teammates in practice so they know when to switch screens during live action. Clarke has impressed scouts with his transition play on offense but needs to establish more of a consistent jump shot.
Clarke compares to Shawn Marion in the way he could impact the game with defense and shooting. His showing at the NBA Draft Scouting Combine impressed from all angles with speed, agility, athleticism testing and a lights-out shooting performance.
