Coach Dan Majerle Issues Not-So-Veiled Warning To Earl Clark

After yesterday's poor showing in Game 1 of the Vegas Summer League, Earl Clark promised to come out today and do better. He didn't.

According to his coach, Dan Majerle, Clark needs to work harder and do a better job helping his teammates.

"I don't really care about him making shots right now. I just want him to play hard and make other people better," Majerle told SB Nation Arizona after the game before issuing this warning, "He's not doing that right now, but he's got to figure it out or he'll find himself riding the pine again."

Clark admitted to his lack of conditioning, "I'm not in as much as good of shape as I thought I was when I came out here. I was tired a little bit."

The Suns were defeated 103-69 by the Toronto Raptors.

The only bright spot for the Suns was the play of unsigned rookie, Gani Lawal.

From Bright Side of the Sun:

Lawal ran the floor well again, but today showed some impressive post moves, at one point spinning around Joey Dorsey and finishing with a two-hand slam.

Dan Majerle commented on the rookie's play, "He plays really hard. He loves posting up and he's got some good explosive moves. Once he gets in condition and learns the NBA game, I think he's got a chance to be pretty good."
