This spot was originally reserved for Scott Machado, but I decided to pick a player who wasn’t with the team last season: Ian Clark.  Machado has played horribly so far and is not looking like the point guard the Warriors would like him to be anyway.

Clark isn’t a point guard – he’s an undersized shooting guard – but he could earn a spot on the team.  His specialty is his three-point shooting, and while the Warriors already have a few great shooters, there is always room for another one.

During his senior year at Belmont, Clark shot 45.9 percent from three-point range.  He displayed his ability in a win over the Sacramento Kings, making 3-of-6 behind the arc.  The Warriors are only going to sign standout players, and so far, Clark has been the only new face to stand out to me.

If he wants to catch GM Bob Myers’ attention, he needs to keep shooting the ball.  If he can sprinkle some defensive/passing ability in with a shooting display, he may find himself a spot on the roster.
