Clarkson was drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers with the 46th pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. In 2016, he signed a 4-year $50M deal, which is entering its last year. Clarkson arrived to the Cavaliers after being traded from the Lakers in 2018 shortly before the trade deadline.
This past season with the Cavs, Clarkson came off the bench as the backup point guard of the team, featuring in 81 games and averaging 16.8 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 2.4 assists in 27.3 minutes per game while shooting 32.4% from the three-point line.
