Dan Clark

In a cruel twist of fate, Dan Clark has injured his right knee and been released from Laboral Kutxa after coming to an agreement with the ACB side.

The 6’11” GB forward signed with Kutxa on a short-term contract just over a month ago, having originally signed with Zaragoza in the offseason but the deal falling through after after a disagreement about treatment for an ankle injury highlighted in the club medical.

His departure from Baskonia is on much better terms, with both the coach and club wishing him all the best for the future.

“Good bye and good luck to Daniel Clark,” tweeted head coach Sergio Scariolo. “Good player and great kid…when 100% healthy,he will prove to be euroleague player!!”

The Londoner represented GB at Eurobasket, proving his fitness to Zaragoza as he averaged a team high 12.6 points and 6.4 rebounds.

“I want to thank Baskonia and all the fans for making me feel at home during this short time,” Clark tweeted on Tuesday. “Good luck to the team!”

Clark, who joined up with GB teammate Devon van Oostrum with Laboral Kutxa, appeared in just one regular season game for the Spanish side, scoring 3 points and pulling down 5 rebounds in 17 minutes against Gran Canaria.
