Terrence Clarke, the promising basketball guard that was preparing for the NBA draft, but who's life was cut short when he died in a single-car crash in Los Angeles at age 19, was welcomed into the NBA when Commissioner Adam Silver ceremonially drafted Clarke into the league.
In a tear-filled presentation attended by Clarke's mother, Osmine Clarke, and his two siblings at the Barclays Center Silver drafted Clarke on behalf of the NBA.
"His extraordinary talent, dedication and commitment to the game deserve to be recognized," Silver said. "He will forever be part of the NBA family."
Clarke only played eight games with the Kentucky Wildcats because of an ankle injury, after leaving the University of Kentucky, Clarke signed with Klutch Sports, the agency associated with LeBron James and his agent, Rich Paul.
