The Cavaliers have landed one of the Lakers’ front-line free agents. No, not that guy.
Cleveland has agreed to terms on a two-year contract with forward Earl Clark, who played alongside Dwight Howard last season in Los Angeles.
Clark, who spent two days visiting with the Cavs earlier this week, is getting a deal worth $9 million. NBA teams can’t officially sign players until the free agent period ends July 10.
The 6-foot-10 Clark set career-highs in scoring (7.3), rebounds (5.5) and minutes (23.1) in 36 starts last season. Before joining the Lakers, Clark played for Orlando and Phoenix. He made $1.2 million last season.
In Cleveland, Clark will be reunited with coach Mike Brown. The two were together in Los Angeles last season before Brown was fired after just five games.
