|Clarke will go back to the D-League.|
From Adam Himmelsbach of the Boston Globe:
The Celtics were pleased with the play of Clarke, who played six minutes and made both of his 3-point attempts during his three weeks with the team. But they wanted to keep the roster spot available in case a specific need arises because of injury before the playoffs.
Clarke said he will return to the D-League’s Maine Red Claws and work for another opportunity, either in Boston or elsewhere.
'I'm gonna just do what I do and just get better, and hopefully someone will take notice,' Clarke said. 'It's all about opportunity and getting a fit and getting a chance. I'm not gonna stop just because I got two 10-days. I'm gonna keep going and hopefully stick on an NBA roster.'
Clarke's final stat line in two appearances with the Celtics:
Six points in six minutes, 2-for-4 from the field, 2-of-2 on three-pointers, one rebound and one turnover.
Parting ways with Clarke is a logical move for the C's--they have no real use for a 15-man roster at the moment and might as well keep their options open on the off chance a need should arise. Boston could still sign Clarke at a later date, take somebody else from the D-League or possibly pursue a free agent returning from Europe.
