Jordan Clarkson is the latest NBA athlete to join the Anta family. Anta Philippines announced that Clarkson will exclusively wear Anta while competing for the Philippines in the upcoming FIBA World Cup, per NBA reporter Naveen Ganglani.
Following the FIBA World Cup, which begins on August 25, Clarkson and Anta are also in talks of a deal that would have Clarkson wear Anta for the upcoming NBA Season. Clarkson has played with the Utah Jazz as a point guard since 2019.
Anta’s growing roster of NBA players includes Golden State Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson, Charlotte Hornets small forward Gordon Hayward, and most recently, Dallas Mavericks point guard and former Nike signature athlete, Kyrie Irving.
Clarkson’s recent performance in a game between the Philippines and Montenegro was promising as he scored 27 points, delivered five assists, and secured two rebounds, achieving 8/15 from the field. On the other hand, Clarkson also had a few shortcoming this game with eight turnovers that may have contributed to the Philippines’ 102-87 loss.
