Former Louisville forward Earl Clark has certainly improved his game this season with the Lakers, and has drawn enough interest to be sought-after in free agency. Well, one team took notice and signed him.
The Cleveland Cavaliers, a team in desperate need a of a good SF signed Clark to a two-year, $9 million deal. That was confirmed first by this tweet from Sean Deveny:
Here’s the Earl Clark to Cavs (2 ys, $9mil) link. Don’t be surprised if he is a starter: http://t.co/6rBAOnIKUQ

This is fantastic news for Clark, as he’s making MUCH more money than he was with the Lakers, and he’s going to finally get to show his full capability as a probable Cavaliers starter. In fact, the Cavs lineup is Irving, Waiters, Clark, Thompson, and Varejao, with Zeller, Bennett, and Gee on their bench. As a Cavs fan, this really excites me.
