Jordan Clarkson is the 1.8 Million Dollar Man, and he looks like he’s worth it.

Yes, the Los Angeles Lakers paid $1.8 million for the 46th overall pick in last month’s draft in order to select Clarkson out of Missouri, who is now averaging 18.7 points per game through the team’s first three games.

And, despite Julius Randle putting on a dominant performance of his own on Monday night, Clarkson stole the show by tipping in Randle’s miss at the end of overtime to win the game for the Summer League Lakers, who had lost their first two outings in Las Vegas.

Judging by these past few games, the future is most definitely bright for the purple and gold and it will be fun to watch both Randle and Clarkson develop over the next few years.
