Free-agent guard Ian Clark has agreed to a one-year, $1.6 million deal with the New Orleans Pelicans, league sources told The Vertical.
Clark was one of the top free agents remaining and should be a significant shooting addition for the Pelicans. New Orleans signed guard Rajon Rondo this offseason and had focused on adding a versatile shooter, with Clark emerging as a priority.
Clark received strong interest from several teams on the market, but he should have an ideal role alongside a pass-first guard in Rondo and two of the league’s best big men in Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins.
Clark was a backup guard for the NBA champion Golden State Warriors last season. He averaged 6.8 points and 1.2 assists last season while shooting a career high 37.4 percent from 3-point range.
