After earning All-Rookie First Team honors, Jordan Clarkson averaged 16.8 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.0 assists at the Las Vegas Summer League. With Clarkson expected to start alongside D’Angelo Russell in the backcourt, he will have the opportunity to take the next step in his development.

As Clarkson prepares for training camp, he recently appeared on SiriusXM NBA Radio to discuss numerous topics including his team goal for the 2015-16 NBA season:

The Lakers have a nice blend of veterans and prospects this upcoming season, but they have very little margin for error in the difficult Western Conference. While the Portland Trail Blazers and Dallas Mavericks are two playoff teams that lost key pieces this off-season, the Oklahoma City Thunder will likely earn one of those playoffs spots should Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook remain relatively healthy.

For the Lakers, the playoffs would be a nice accomplishment at this stage of the rebuilding process. However, the focus should be on the development of Russell, Clarkson and Julius Randle as the Lakers prepare for the post-Kobe Bryant era.

In his rookie season, Clarkson averaged 11.9 points, 3.2 rebounds and 3.5 assists.
