NBA Free Agency: Earl Clark headed to Cleveland


Los Angeles Lakers free agent forward Earl Clark is taking his talents to the Cleveland Cavaliers, per Sean Deveney Sporting News.

The reported deal is for 2 years, worth around $9 million.

Clark and the Cavaliers met on Tuesday, then again on Wednesday. On Thursday, it appears, that a contract was finally offered to Clark, which he accepted.

The 6-foot-10 “small” forward out of Louisville started 36 games for the often-injured Lakers last year. He shot 44 percent from the field overall, 34 percent from three. He turned over the ball more often than not, and showed signs of inconsistency — then again, he still has a ways to go.

He’s athletic and has potential. If he can find any kind of minutes in Cleveland, he can help. This is a nice low risk/high reward move that the Cavaliers should be making right now.

Clark averaged 7.3 points and 5.5 rebounds last season. He will be entering his sixth season (25-years-old) when October comes around.
