The Golden State Warriors continue filling out the roster by inking free agent guard Ian Clark to a deal. Shams Charania of RealGM was first to break the news:

Clark, 6'3" guard out of Belmont went undrafted, but appeared on the Warriors Summer League squad in 2013. He led Golden State to a Summer League title in Las Vegas by scoring 33 points in the final game and subsequently won MVP of the tournament.

Later, Clark secured a two-year deal with the Utah Jazz and since then has bounced between Salt Lake City and the NBA D-League before finishing off the 2014-15 season with the Denver Nuggets.

This summer, Clark played for the Nuggets Summer League team and averaged 13.4 points while shooting 50% from behind the arc. Via Clint Dempsey of the Denver Post, Nuggets head coach Mike Malone was impressed with Clark's defense.

"Ian loves this stage," Malone said. "He's more than just a shooter, which is why I like him. He's a guy that knows how to play, he can put the ball on the floor, and defensively I trust him.

"He's a guy that is in the right place at the right time, understands his responsibilities and has good game plan discipline. So, he's been excelling on both ends of the floor."

Ian Clark gives Golden State another shooter off the bench and guard depth. He will look to impress the Warriors once again in his second stint with the team.
