Lakers free-agent forward Earl Clark, who played for coach Mike Brown last season in Los Angeles, reportedly is visiting Cleveland on Tuesday as the Cavs ease into the free-agent market. Neither the Cavs nor Clark's agent, Kevin Bradbury, would confirm the report to The Plain Dealer, but Bradbury did retweet a post from Sporting News' Sean Deveney announcing the workout.

Here is the Lakers' plan if Dwight leaves: Keep Pau for final year of his deal. Use amnesty provision to cut Metta and save $30 million in luxury-tax payments. Re-sign Earl Clark if reasonable, sign someone else on the cheap and/or plug in Meeks or Blake to the starting lineup that will have two vacancies without Dwight and Metta but still Pau. Jordan Hill is the only other frontcourt player under contract right now. Sulia

The Lakers' plan if Dwight stays? Much different. Pau is all but a goner, most likely via amnesty provision to save more than $60 million in luxury-tax payments. The oft-traveled path of trying to trade Pau remains in play if Dwight stays -- though a scenario that brings back some talent and doesn't cause payroll risks for the future is so far unknown. Metta, not Pau, gets to stay for the final season on his Lakers' contract. Earl Clark remains a candidate to return because Pau's power-forward spot would be open (though Metta playing more PF makes sense to me). Sulia
