The Wolves selected the 6-foot-5 guard out of UCLA with the 53rd pick in the 2023 NBA Draft.

Clark was named the 2022-23 Naismith Defensive Player of the Year, 2022-23 NABC Defensive Player of the Year and 2022-23 Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year, UCLA’s first defensive player of the year winner since Russell Westbrook in 2007-08.

Clark’s ticket to getting some minutes next season is definitely his ability to defend at a high level, and multiple positions.
