NBA Free Agency: Earl Clark agrees to sign with Cavaliers

USA TODAY Sports

The Cavaliers have agreed to terms with Earl Clark on a contract.

The Cavaliers have agreed to contract terms with forward Earl Clark, according to Sean Deveney of Sporting News.

Two years and $9 million is slightly more than I expected or anticipated, but being such a short term it's not going to be a disaster even if he ends up never fully forming into the athletic combo forward that he can be. Clark is 6'10", shot 34% from three-point range last season and is capable of defending both on the perimeter and in the post. He played for Mike Brown in the five games that Brown coached the Lakers last season, so the coach must have seen something he liked. I think he's a pretty excellent fit next to Anthony Bennett, creating matchup problems on the floor both ways.

There is no word on any other contract details, and we'll have a breakdown of the specifics that Clark can bring to the Cavs at some point this weekend. But on this holiday we'll just keep it brief and wish everyone a happy Fourth of July. The Cavs finally did something in free agency!

UPDATE (1:39 P.M. MT): The second season in Clark's deal is a team option, per David Aldridge:
