Los Angeles Lakers forward Earl Clark certainly isn’t a household name but the former Louisville Cardinal impressed during his time starting for the injury riddled Lakers this year and may cash in because of it.
The 6’10 Clark, who made just over $1 million dollars this year is looking to increase the dollar amount in his bank account and one such team potentially willing to help him do so are the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Per Sam Amico:
Reports that the Cavs are considering Los Angeles Lakers forward Earl Clark in free agency are accurate, sources said. Current Cavs and former Lakers coach Mike Brown is supposedly a fan.
Clark, who was originally drafted by the Phoenix Suns also spent time in Orlando before joining the Lakers in the Dwight Howard deal.
While many had written off the former Cardinals star as a bust, Clark seemingly proved them wrong with his solid 2012-13 season.
How much he’ll command on the open market is unknown but he still should come at a relatively fair price if the Cavs do make a run at the big man.
