HoopsHype Earl Clark rumors

November 19, 2014 Updates

While the added 3-point threat is valuable, Clark has still been very aggressive inside the arc as well. He's averaging 11.3 points in the paint this season and is getting to the line 4.7 times a night as well. Clark's ultimate goal is of course to latch on with an NBA team where he surely has the talent to contribute. He's only 26-years-old and he has 251 games on NBA experience to draw from. The 3-point threat definitely adds value for Clark for an NBA team, because the stretch four is the new trend and Clark can somewhat fit that mold. I say somewhat, because while Clark is 6'10 he's not a power forward as much as he is a lanky small forward. Ridiculous Upside

On Monday, former Lakers forward Earl Clark signed a nonguaranteed contract with the Memphis Grizzlies, but he'll have to outplay two others competing for one roster spot -- assuming the Grizzlies take 15 players to the regular season. After a breakout season with the Lakers in 2012-13, Clark signed a two-year, $9-million deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers but the Cavs soon after dealt him to the Philadelphia 76ers for Spencer Hawes, who in turn cut him loose (before his second season became fully guaranteed). Clark is one of many former Lakers around the league. Los Angeles Times

“I’ve been hearing from a few teams, but it’s not anything that I’m jumping at right now,” said Earl Clark. “It’s been different, man. I’ve been a free agent a few times and this summer seems like it’s going in slow motion. I’m just giving it time and going through the process. I just want the right situation and the opportunity to play. That’s all I want – the opportunity to get out there, play, help the team and prove myself again.” Basketball Insiders

Shannon Brown is proven in this league about what he’s capable of. I’m glad we got two extra bodies that will try to help us get over this hump.’’ New York Post
