According to Yahoo! Sports NBA writer Marc Spears, former Louisville Cardinal Earl Clark is expected to be part of a four team trade that will send him to the Los Angeles Lakers along with Dwight Howard and Chris Duhon. Below is a complete breakdown of the trade.
Lakers receive: Dwight Howard, Earl Clark and Chris Duhon.
76ers receive: Andre Byum and Jason Richardson
Magic receive: Aaron Afflalo, Al Harrington, Nikola Vucevic and one protected future first-round pick from each of the three teams.
Clark will be entering his fourth year in the NBA. He spent his first three years with both the Phoenix Suns and the Orlando Magic. In his first three seasons Clark averaged 3.1 points and 2.1 rebounds in 10.1 minutes per game.
E5 hasn’t exactly met his lottery pick expectations just yet, but he showed a lot of upside towards the end of last season with Orlando. The move to L.A. would be a great move for his career in my opinion. Clark will have the opportunity to play for what will be one of the best if not the best teams in the league.He’ll compete with veteran Antawn Jamison and former former Duke forward Josh McRoberts for playing time.
