Jazz rookies Clark and Gobert sent back to D-League

Los Angeles • Rudy Gobert and Ian Clark took care of some rookie obligations after Friday night's loss to the Lakers by helping carry veterans' bags out of Staples Center.

The first-year Jazz players must now deal with another part of being a young player in search of NBA minutes: another D-League assignment.

Clark, the undrafted combo guard out of Belmont, and Gobert, a promising but raw young center, both stayed in L.A. as the rest of the team returned home to Utah. They are expected to be in uniform when the Bakersfield Jam takes on the L.A. D-Fenders tonight at 7:30 MT.

This is the second D-League stint for both Clark and Gobert. In three games with the team last month, all starts, Clark averaged 12.3 points, 3 rebounds and 4.3 assists. Gobert averaged 14 points, 13 rebounds and 4.3 blocks.

• In other D-League news, former Jazz forward Othyus Jeffers, who played for Utah for part of the 2010 season, earned NBA Development League Player of the Month honors for November and December. The 28-year-old averaged 24.2 points, 12.4 rebounds and 2.4 steals a game for the Iowa Energy.

Meanwhile, Minnesota rookie Shabazz Muhammad, whom the Jazz drafted and then packaged in a trade for Burke, was assigned to the D-League on Friday.
