Manchester Giants are bringing Dan Clark home.

The Great Britain captain, 32, is to play in the British Basketball League for the first time this season in a major coup for the perennial strugglers.


After making his senior professional debut as a 17-year-old, he was a regular in the formidable Spanish top flight by the age of 20 and spent much of his career in what is widely considered the best domestic league in the world outside of the NBA. His personal peak was in 2017-18 when he averaged 12 points and 5 rebounds for Gipuzkoa, in a campaign during which he had three double-figure scoring games against Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid. In total, he has appeared in 14 ACB campaigns and nearly 300 games and is a career 34.6% three-point shooter on more than 1,200 attempts.

In addition, Clark has played in European competition in recent years, both in the Basketball Champions League with Fuenlabrada in 2018-19, and in the EuroCup with Andorra in 2019-20. He has also featured in the NBA Summer League for the Orlando Magic in 2014-15, as well as an overseas stint in North Macedonia.

“The opportunity to be able to play in the UK for the first time in my career in a great sporting city that is Manchester is extremely exciting,” said Clark

“If you add on to that the ambition that the Giants have shown me and the ability this opportunity provides me in terms of being able to develop and grow alongside a club that has big ambitions in the basketball world. It’s a new challenge but definitely an exciting one.”
