Utah Jazz guard Jordan Clarkson was voted the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year for 2020-21. The 28-year-old Clarkson moved from the Los Angeles Lakers to the Cleveland Cavaliers and, most recently, to Utah. He beat out teammate Joe Ingles and New York Knicks guard Derrick Rose to win this year’s accolade.
In 68 games, Clarkson has averaged 18.4 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.5 assists as the Jazz finished with a record of 52-20 and captured the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference playoffs. This is the sixth straight season the award has gone to a player from the Western Conference.
