“I’m excited for the girls that are on the team,” Clark said on Sunday, her first comments since the roster was revealed. “I know it’s the most competitive team in the world and I know it could’ve gone either way, me being on the team or me not being on the team. I’m excited for them, gonna be rooting them on to win gold. I was a kid that grew up watching the Olympics, it’ll be fun to watch them.”

While Clark didn’t complain, Indiana Fever head coach Christie Sides said that Clark told her “they woke a monster” with the decision.

“Honestly, no disappointment,” Clark said. “I think it just gives you something to work for. It’s a dream, hopefully one day I can be there. I think it’s just a little bit more motivation. You remember that and hopefully when four years comes back around, I can be there.”
