Jordan Clarkson has fans in the New York Knicks organization, particularly assistant general manager Walt Perrin who was instrumental in bringing him to Utah via trade in 2019.
According to Marc Stein , Clarkson is one of the Knicks’ trade candidates to fill Immanuel Quickley’s void in their second unit. Clarkson, a former Sixth Man of the Year, is perfect. But at what cost?
SNY’s Ian Begley hinted that Clarkson’s price might be too high for the Knicks.
“When you think about Jordan Clarkson … I’ve been told that teams that are looking at him say Utah will want a lot back,” Begley reported after the Knicks’ 126-100 loss to the Toronto Raptors on Jan. 20 in Madison Square Garden.
“He IS under contract for next year. The [Jazz] organization really loves Jordan Clarkson and he has helped them win games. So if you’re a Knicks fan and you want Jordan Clarkson, just know that the Knicks would have to invest significant trade resources to get him.”
