Ian Clark was an impact player during the Warriors' perfect run at the NBA's Summer League title and earned a two-year contract with the Utah Jazz.

Several teams were in the running for Clark's services, including the Golden State Warriors, but Utah offered him the chance to compete for playing time right away.

"It is a great feeling," Clark said, according to USA Today. "You just want to come into the Summer League and show what you can do, and when you can do it the right way things work out. I was blessed to be on two teams (Miami and Golden State) that let me show my skills and had the utmost confidence in me, and I'd just like to thank them from the bottom of my heart."

An undrafted guard from Memphis, Tennessee, Clark spent three NCAA seasons with the Belmont Bruins. He averaged 18.2 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game as a senior last season.

Clark registered an impressive 33 points in the Warriors' 91-77 victory over the Phoenix Suns in the championship game of the Summer League Tournament.

The six-foot-three guard has a wealth of big-game experience, with three NCAA tournament appearances under his belt. Now, he'll look to establish himself as a difference-maker at the NBA level.
