Utah Jazz: Missouri’s Clarkson makes big impression in workout

Clarkson may be the only player the Jazz have brought in for a workout that stands a chance at being drafted with the second of their first-round picks, No. 23 overall. Certainly, if Utah fills another position with its lottery selection, Clarkson has made enough of an impression to find himself in the mix. But where Burke is 6-0, Clarkson has much more size. Perrin said Clarkson handled the altitude well and that he offers intrigue to the Jazz because his measurements are different from starting point guard Trey Burke. The Jazz saw him last week in a private workout in New York which also included top-five candidate Noah Vonleh. "He’s very intriguing," said Jazz vice president of player personnel Walt Perrin. He has great size and he shot the ball much better than we thought he would here."
