Report: Philadelphia 76ers waive Earl Clark


Hours after acquiring Earl Clark from the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Philadelphia 76ers have reportedly waived the 26-year-old forward, per the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Clark was originally traded to the Sixers as a part of the Spencer Hawes trade to the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavaliers sent back Clark, Henry Sims and two second-round picks.

The move now moves the Sixers back to a 15-man roster, which is the league-mandated amount. Clark was in the final, and lone, year of his contract and averaged 5.2 points and 2.8 rebounds this season for the Cavs. He started 17 games this season.

Before that, Clark averaged career-highs in both points and rebounds for the Los Angeles Lakers (last season) — 7.3 points and 5.5 rebounds.

Clark was the 14th overall pick by the Phoenix Suns back in 2009. He has had stints with the Orlando Magic, in addition to the Lakers, Cavaliers and Suns.
