The Cleveland Cavaliers have not been the most active team in NBA free agency thus far, but it sounds like the team has taken a liking to former Los Angeles Lakers forward Earl Clark.
Better yet, the feelings appear to be mutual.
Sean Deveney of the Sporting News says the two sides met Tuesday and are set to meet Wednesday as well:
Free agent forward Earl Clark met with the Cavaliers in Cleveland on Tuesday, and though no contract offers were made, the two sides are expected to meet again Wednesday, a source told Sporting News. The source labeled the interest between Clark and the Cavaliers “very mutual.”
Clark joined the Lakers as a part of the Dwight Howard deal, and we all know how that turned out. Clark was finally given his moment in the sun last season and played well, especially from behind the three-point line.
It’s not known why the Cavaliers need another player in Clark’s mold, but he has ties to the coaching staff in place. The interest from both sides likely means a deal is on the way soon.
