As Todd noted, the moves give Clarkson an opportunity for an extension.
Clarkson, 31, has just completed his third full year in Utah, averaging a career-high 20.8 points, as well as 4.4 assists and 4.0 rebounds in 61 games last season. He shot 44 percent from the field and 34 percent on 3-pointers.
Along with the Jazz, he has spent time with the Cavaliers and Lakers since entering the NBA as a second-round pick in 2014.
I'm told Jordan Clarkson will exercise his player option to stay with the Utah Jazz for the 2023-24 season, according to league sources.
This leaves the door open for the Jazz to extend his contract.
