As the Utah Jazz are inching towards a much-anticipated fire-sale, Jordan Clarkson isn’t minding the whispers surrounding his name.
The veteran is approaching every single news with professionalism and contentment in his current standing. If there could be a breaking update that will happen, he’ll embrace it with open arms.
“I’m chillin’,” he said about his current situation amid swirling rumors (h/t Deseret News’ Sarah Todd). “My mood is — I’m always good. My vibe is always good. It doesn’t change. This is my ninth year going into the league. I know how the business of basketball works.”
After the breakaway of Quin Snyder in the team’s top coaching helm and the offloading of Rudy Gobert in exchange of Minnesota Timberwolves’ bountiful future assets, the Jazz are in position to reset their league classification and start from scratch.
With all the talks now centered around All-star guard Donovan Mitchell, Clarkson and other Utah’s key players are placed in the NBA’s rumor web.
Given that he is a microwave scorer off the bench who won the Sixth Man of the Year award in the 2020-2021 season, the Fil-Am pride is truly a compelling trade chip to consider.
