Gary Clark Jr.
F - ORL
Gary Clark Jr. scored 14 points (4-7 FG, 4-7 3PT, 2-2 FT) with four rebounds and two assists across 33 minutes in a 107-104 loss to the Charlotte Hornets on Sunday.
The second-year forward received the start against Charlotte after Aaron Gordon was ruled out due to a back injury prior to Sunday's contest. Clark Jr. should not be rostered and will likely remain on most league's waiver wires as his starting role is only temporary until Gordon is cleared to return. The Magic will look for a way to secure a much needed win against the Hornets again on Monday, having lost eight of their last nine games after a hot start to the season.
Gary Clark Jr. scored 10 points (3-6 FG, 2-4 3PT, 2-2 FT) with five rebounds and an assist across 24 minutes in a 122-115 loss to the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday.
The second-year forward scored 10 points for the first time this season, collecting five rebounds and dishing an assist in 24 minutes against the Nets on Saturday. Clark Jr. should not be rostered in fantasy leagues at this time due to his limited production off the bench. The Magic will look to end their five-game losing streak against the New York Knicks on Monday.
Gary Clark Jr. was held scoreless (0-3 FG, 0-3 3PT) with four rebounds and a block across 31 minutes in a 132-90 blowout loss to the Houston Rockets on Friday.
The second-year small forward played over 30 minutes for the first time this season yet was unable to provide fantasy value for those rostering him, going 0-of-3 from 3-point range and hauling in four rebounds in a game that was over by halftime. Fantasy managers should not roster Clark Jr. until he consistently strings together better shooting performances amidst the increased minutes he's receiving.
Gary Clark has agreed to a two-year, $4.1 million contract to remain with the Magic on Saturday, per Adrian Wojnarowski.
Clark only averaged 14.8 minutes for the Magic last season, logging 3.6 points and 2.9 rebounds in the 24 games he played. Clark will likely continue to play a limited role behind star PF Aaron Gordon heading into the 2020-2021 season, leaving him without much value for fantasy.
The Magic have given PF Gary Clark a qualifying offer, making him a restricted free agent.
Clark will become a restricted free agent, meaning the Magic can match any offer he receives from other teams. He averaged 3.7 points, 2.6 rebounds, 0.4 assists and 0.9 triples over 42 games for the Rockets/Magic last season. Clark will most likely come off the bench once again if he remains in Orlando.
