Draft Profile

 

Ian Clark, PG/SG, Belmont

Listed as combo guard, the senior from Belmont will likely be a shooting guard at the NBA level. He shoots well (45 percent from 3-point range his senior year), can defend (1.6 steals) and can handle the ball. While he’s not the ideal size for an NBA 2-guard, the 22-year-old should be capable of getting his shot off thanks to his athleticism and quick first step. During one stretch in January he scored 20 points or more in six straight games. In four years at Belmont, he was a member of three NCAA tournament teams, including helping score a dramatic overtime win over Isaiah Canaan and Murray State in the Ohio Valley Conference title game this season. Clark is listed as late second-round draft pick by some mock drafts while others have him going undrafted.

According to ESPN’s Chad Ford, “Clark is one of the most underrated players in the country. If he were a few inches taller, he'd be getting a lot more praise. As it stands, he's been a lights-out shooter (46 percent from 3-point range this season) and a lockdown defender.”
