After landing J.J. Redick and Jared Dudley, the Los Angeles Clippers hope to continue building around the current core of the team and to add depth to the team’s frontcourt. According to Chris Broussard of ESPN, the Clippers have their eyes on the Los Angeles Lakers free agent Earl Clark.

Clark had a bit of a breakout year with the Lakers last season, as he got a fair chance to contribute when the Lakers roster went through an abundance of injury woes. He averaged 7.3 points and 5.5 rebounds in 2012-13.
Clark was glued to the bench in the early parts of the season, but had huge months in January and February. In January he averaged 10.3 points and 8.4 rebounds, which eventually earned him a spot in the starting lineup and he averaged 33.5 minutes per game in the following month.
The Clippers have also been in talks with Carl Landry, but he would probably be more expensive than Clark, which would limit the Clippers as they continue pursuing role players in free agency.
