Kings Sign NBA Champion Ian Clark

The Sydney Kings have signed NBA championship-winning guard Ian Clark for the remainder of Hungry Jacks NBL22 season. 

The 191cm versatile guard will come into the line-up for tomorrow’s clash against the Brisbane Bullets at Qudos Bank Arena and takes his place in the roster as an injury replacement for Jordan Hunter. 

Clark played 330 games in his NBA career, which was highlighted by playing a vital role off the bench for arguably one of the greatest teams of all-time, the 2017 NBA champions the Golden State Warriors, playing alongside Kings part-owner Andrew Bogut and backing up one of the greatest shooters in the game, Steph Curry. 

Hoops Capital and Kings CEO Chris Pongrass said Clark’s signing came after an extensive and considered search. 

“We are thrilled to have Ian joining our organisation.” 

“Recruiting in an unprecedented and quite uncertain free agent market, we made sure we took a very measured approach to find the right player that will help this team win. Ian fits exactly what we were after” Pongrass said. 

“We were intent on bringing in another shooter and playmaker who can create for himself and others. The benefit of adding an experienced NBA veteran and championship mindset to our locker room cannot be overlooked.” 

Clark last played for the Xinjiang Flying Tigers in the Chinese Basketball Association. 

Clark, a Memphis native, had a decorated college career leading Belmont University to three straight NCAA Tournament appearances (2011, 2012, 2013) and was last year honoured as a member of the school’s Hall of Fame. 

He went on to play with four clubs during his NBA career, the Utah Jazz, the Denver Nuggets, the Gtolden State Warriors and the New Orleans Pelicans. 

Clark arrived in Australia this morning and will suit up for tomorrow’s game at Qudos Bank Arena.
