Los Angeles Lakers swingman Jordan Clarkson officially signed his contract today which will keep him with the purple and gold for the next four seasons. The Lakers were able to retain Clarkson for quite the bargain at just over $12.5 million a year and with doing so, they’ve made it apparent that he is part of their future going forward (if for some reason that was in question).
While Clarkson will undoubtedly enjoy the hard earned salary he’s worked for the past two seasons, it seems that he’ll be generous enough to share some of the wealth with the Lakers LVSL squad.

With fellow “#SplashBrodie” D’Angelo Russell and this year’s second overall pick, Brandon Ingram, on the roster its important to build a bond with those guys heading into the season and JC is already getting a head start on that.
The young guys such as Julius Randle, Larry Nance, Jr, D’Angelo Russell, and Clarkson all started to build special relationships with one another last season and they’ll look to add to that with the new class of Lakers rookies this year.
