After the Lakers have filled their backup point guard spot by re-signing 22-year old Tyler Ennis, they might be closing the door on another option.
The Lakers have brought back their backup point guard from last year on a two-year, minimum contract with a team option for the second year. There had been reports that the Lakers were interested in bringing Ennis back but they had also been linked to other veteran guards as well. One of those was former Golden State Warrior, Ian Clark.
According to Tania Ganguli of the LA Times, the team is no longer in the running for the 27-year old guard.
Unless something changes, Ian Clark is not in the mix for the Lakers anymore, a source said. It's unlikely that changes.

Clark is coming off his best season with the Warriors posting 6.8 points per game in just under 15 minutes of action. Clark would have provided some spacing that the team desperately needs as he shot 37.4 percent from deep last season.
The current roster stands at 13 (could be 14, depending on Thomas Bryant) and is essentially what the team will roll out come opening night barring any massive shake-ups.
