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.
