According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, former Louisville forward Earl Clark has inked a deal with the Memphis Grizzlies.
Wojnarowski reports that Clark has agreed to a training camp deal with the Grizzlies, which means nothing is guaranteed other than an opportunity to make the final roster after training camp.
Clark also worked out with the San Antonio Spurs before signing with Memphis
The former Cardinal has been a free agent since being waived by the New York Knicks following a ten day contract. Clark didn’t finish the 2014-15 season on an NBA roster.
Following a breakout season with the Los Angeles Lakers in 2012-13, Clark signed a free agent deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Unfortunately he wasn’t able to provide much production for the Cavs and was traded to the Philadelphia 76ers at the NBA trade deadline.
As soon as his rights were traded to Philadelphia, Clark was waived by the team. He later signed a ten day contract with the New York Knicks, but did not finish the season on an NBA roster.
Clark was one of the few bright spots for the Lakers in 2012-13 and was one of the NBA’s most improved players once he was inserted into the rotation. He averaged 7.3 points and 5.5 rebounds per game in 59 appearances for the team.
He is one of two former Louisville players that have been given an opportunity with the Memphis Grizzlies. Luke Hancock signed a similar deal with Memphis earlier this month.
