Lakers’ Jordan Clarkson preparing for any role given to him

EL SEGUNDO — The deal sent a clear signal the Lakers viewed Jordan Clarkson as part of their long-term future. The Lakers signed Clarkson last summer to a four-year, $50 million deal, an offer that signified Clarkson’s growth through two …

Lakers players explain why they love Luke Walton

The team had a lot of affection for their head coach. When the Los Angeles Lakers hired Luke Walton as head coach last summer, the former Golden State Warriors assistant came with promises of relationship building with his players and beautiful ball movement, among other things. The Lakes made slow progress this season on the latter front, but Walton has certainly fulfilled the former pledge. Just ask his players, as the media did during their exit interviews Thursday. "I feel like he is the definition of a player's coach,” said Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson, and it’s not just team’s...

Jordan Clarkson isn’t worried about whether or not the Lakers will trade him

The third-year guard plans to ignore rumors about himself. The Los Angeles Lakers won nine more games than last season, but the team was still holding exit interviews in April. That lack of a postseason appearance left Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson unwilling to give the team too much praise following his exit interview with head coach Luke Walton and the team’s front office. “I wouldn’t say it was a successful year for us, but we grew for sure,” Clarkson said, adding that the team has loftier goals to aim for during their next campaign. “I’m not saying we’ll make the playoffs...

Jordan Clarkson says he’s learned to play a ton of different roles for the Lakers

The former second-round pick has had to learn to be flexible. From the moment he was drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers, the only consistent thing for Jordan Clarkson has been inconsistency. After a promising showing in Las Vegas Summer League, Clarkson started the year as a benchwarmer for Byron Scott’s Lakers. About halfway through the year, the rookie second-round pick began to get some burn for the injury-plagued purple and gold. By the end of the season, Clarkson was the team’s starting point guard and earned his way onto the All-Rookie First Team. The next season saw Clarkson...

Luke Walton shares his favorite memories from the Lakers’ season

Los Angeles’ head coach keeps things positive. When a team finishes with a 26-56 record, obviously a lot went wrong. The Los Angeles Lakers are no exception, finishing up a season filled with often unwatchable basketball with a 109-94 loss to the Golden State Warriors Wednesday. Still, the season wasn’t all bad for Los Angeles. The Lakers improved upon their previous campaign by nine wins, and saw tons of growth from rookie forward Brandon Ingram down the stretch as well as flashes from their young core of D’Angelo Russell, Julius Randle, Larry Nance, Jr., Jordan Clarkson and Ivica...

Jordan Clarkson says he’s ‘going to make playing for the Filipino National Team happen’

The guard sounds motivated to participate in international play. Jordan Clarkson is currently in the midst of finishing up his third season with the Los Angeles Lakers, but he’s not done thinking about basketball just yet. The combo guard, currently averaging 14.7 points and 2.6 assists on 44.3 percent shooting, has attempted to play for the Filipino National Team over the last two summers but ultimately been unable to make it work. Clarkson says he’s committed to changing that. “We’re going to make playing for the Filipino National Team happen,” Clarkson told Rahul Lal of CBS....

Lakers News: Jordan Clarkson compared Metta World Peace to a stripper, for some reason

Magic Metta? Post game quotes from athletes and coaches are a funny thing. A lot of the time they’re fairly inconsequential coach speak. “We always want to win” or “we have to execute better,” boring stuff like that. Sometimes they’re a little more fascinating than that, maybe an anecdote about what specifically motivated a player’s performance, or a coach revealing their thoughts on how a player has progressed. Every once in a while, though, we get a true treasure. Sunday night was one of those nights, as Los Angeles Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson was asked if he had...

Brandon Ingram’s finishing at the rim has shown the Lakers they have something special

The rookie has gotten to (and finished) at the rim with ease over the last several weeks, a promising sign for his growth moving forward. LOS ANGELES — Before the Los Angeles Lakers took on the Milwaukee Bucks in March, Jordan Clarkson needed a pair of headphones. Surveying the Lakers locker room with his sweatshirt hood up and the collar pulled over his mouth, Clarkson eventually settled on Brandon Ingram, telling the "rook" to hand over the red, over-ear headphones the 19-year old listens to prior to every game. "14 more games," Ingram muttered to Clarkson and fellow rookie Ivica Zubac,...

Lakers vs. Spurs Final Score: Lakers stun the world in 102-95 victory

We don’t know either. The Los Angeles Lakers may have sealed their lottery odds fate in a stunning 102-95 victory over the San Antonio Spurs. The effort was led by Tyler Ennis, who scored a game-high and career-high with 19 points. D’Angelo Russell was a late scratch, sitting with a sore left knee. Brandon Ingram was held out after halftime, a precautionary measure as he was dealing with his own knee issues not long ago. Jordan Clarkson left during the second half after tweaking his knee. Metta World Peace was in for extended minutes. The Lakers kept on winning no matter what they...

Jordan Clarkson says he steals Nick Young’s clothes sometimes

Just call him Swaggy-P[etty theft]. If you’ve ever been impressed with the stylish outfits Jordan Clarkson wears before and after Los Angeles Lakers games, you should probably give his teammate Nick Young some credit. Why? Well, when speaking with Mark Medina at Delta’s “Beyond the Court” event Monday, during which Clarkson and fashion designer Chris Stamp spoke with 100 fans about their fashion philosophies while helping them design streetwear, the Lakers guard said he sometimes swipes his fellow backcourt member’s clothing. “I steal some of his clothes from time to time when...

Can the Lakers make it back-to-back wins over Minny? The Los Angeles Lakers get another shot at the Minnesota Timberwolves, taking another crack at a team they beat in overtime less than a week ago. The Timberwolves had no answer for Jordan Clarkson, who splashed a career-high eight three-pointers in their faces, and Minnesota was simply out of gas by the end of regulation Things are different this time around, though, with the Lakers playing in one of their final road games of the season. An earlier tip-off and being away from STAPLES Center could swing the pendulum in the T-Wolves favor...
