Clark spoke to the Los Angeles Times and he talked about his future with the Lakers.

“Obviously, not playing earlier and averaging those [low] numbers, I didn’t know where I would end up,” Clark said. “Playing good now and with other teams wanting you, you can pick your own destiny. It feels good to be in the driver’s seat.”

“This is my first team that gave me an opportunity. I love the guys here,” Clark said. “The organization and the style of play fits me. I really want to stay here.”

Clark will be a free-agent at the end of this season and there is a chance the Lakers decide to bring him back for the long-term. After D’Antoni decided to place Clark in the starting lineup, the 25 year old has averaged 10.8 points and 8.5 rebounds per game.
