Orlando Magic  NBA  
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Clark began his rookie season with the Rockets on a two-way contract but was ultimately converted to a full-time member of the NBA roster when he signed a three-year deal in December. Clark ended up making a pair of starts and appearing in 52 games overall for Houston last year, averaging 2.9 points and 2.3 rebounds across 12.6 minutes per game. Entering his second NBA season, Clark could be in line for a somewhat larger role depending on how Houston's final roster ends up looking by the start of the regular season. While P.J. Tucker is expected to again dominate the minutes player at power forward, Clark could wind up being his backup to start the regular season. One thing that really hurts Clark's chances to see additional minutes, however, is how ineffective he was from behind the arc last season, shooting just 29.7 percent from deep on 2.7 attempts per game, which is far from ideal in the team's spaced out offensive attack.

Clark had 15 points (4-12 FG, 4-12 3PT, 3-3 FT) and six rebounds in Tuesday's Game 1 win over Milwaukee.
ANALYSIS
Starting in place of Aaron Gordon, Clark made the most of the opportunity, playing 28 minutes and spending much of the afternoon defending Giannis Antetokounmpo. All 12 of Clark's field goal attempts came from beyond the arc, while he tacked on three free throws.
