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.

    Clark won’t leave the purple & gold for the Cav’s BUT we should send Dwight their if he signs for K. Irving…

  • Martin Susman

    The cav’s would love to get Dwight & he would thrive being the Man in a small market getting max bucks he would get in a sign n trade… The Lakers get K. Irving plus their first round pick or Waiters & Irving…Both these guys will not resign with the Cav’s but they can get Dwight for 5 years and hope for LaBron coming back…

  • Martin Susman

    The Lakers NEED to trade enough to people in order to get first round picks… If Houston is going to get Dwight, then a sign n trade with Houston getting the Lakers first round picks by trading their players to teams with low picks to send to the Lakers… Forget players Houston or other teams don’t want, the NUMBER ONE PICK FIR THE LAKERS NRREDS TO BE A POINT GUARD like Irving, Lillard, Curry, CP3 or Wall….. That is the FIRST thing the Lakers NEED….

      Fuck a pick, they need to do the deal with the clippers so they can get blake griffin AND eric bledsoe (good athletic, strong pg, who plays solid D) worry about those 1st round picks later.

    Lakers need to sign free agents like Kyle Korver and Chase Budinger so they can light up the bench with their sweet threes. If we get those players and DH12 stays I’m sure they will be unstoppable. The only reason this season was a disaster bcuz we had the worst bench players in the NBA period.

    I think Clark would be a great investment for the Lakers, or cavaliers. 14 million and 4 yrs.I would do it! Who ever gets him has got the diamond…

    Hopefully the Lakers! Eazy go hard..
