Morning links: Rudy Gobert shares excitement in former Jazz player Ian Clark's big night; Utes' Joe Williams grabbing NFL attention

Former Utah Jazz guard Ian Clark had a career night for the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday night. Clark came off the bench and scored a career-best 22 points in the Warriors' 127-104 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers.

Clark spent two years with the Jazz before he was released toward the end of the 2014-15 season. He spent a few weeks with Denver and was ultimately signed by the Warriors.

Rudy Gobert, who entered the league the same year as Clark did with the Utah Jazz, also reacted to the night his friend had. Both Gobert and Clark spent time in the D-League together while with the Jazz.

Utah running back Joe Williams is drawing the attention of NFL scouts

After having a rough start to the season, Utah running back Joe Williams retired but injuries plagued the Utes’ running back position. Williams got a call asking if he’d come back and the call has been answered.

NFL.com draft analyst Chad Reuter said his resurgence is raising his NFL stock, as he wrote, "If scouts believe he's all-in on a career in the NFL and are looking for a guy to pound the ball in a power-running scheme, they'll be very interested in Williams."
