The name Clinkscales is becoming synonymous with professional basketball in Halifax after a combined four years of consistent scoring and leadership both on the Rainmen and Hurricanes. 

The six-foot guard knows his role stating, “I bring leadership and experience and as one of the oldest players on the team so my job is to be an extension of my coaches and make the game easier for not only my coaches but also my team.” 

Clinkscales played college basketball at DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois from 2004-2008 where he graduated with a Bachelor in Communications. 

Before coming to Halifax, he played in the NBA D-League with the Erie BayHawks and then with a professional league in Panama City, Florida.
