REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – It’s official — Filipino American Jordan Clarkson has signed his contract with the Los Angeles Lakers.
The Lakers drafted Clarkson earlier this year and after a strong showing during the summer league he has been signed to the Lakers roster.
Clarkson, who played point guard in college, is expected to back up an oft-injured Steve Nash and fellow Asian American Jeremy Lin.
Some insiders also see the 6 foot 5 inch Clarkson as a shooting guard, possibly backing up Kobe Bryant.
