The Lakers are on the verge of signing F Earl Clark to a one-year contract, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

He'll help make up for the loss of Julius Randle, as well as the current injury to Carlos Boozer, but might also hurt the strong play of Ed Davis. Then again, Clark has never really lived up to the hype, but is averaging close to 30 points in the D-League this season.

Rockets waive F Earl Clark.

He had little chance to make the team and Clark might wind up elsewhere.

The Rockets have been awarded Earl Clark off a waiver claim.

Interesting. Their second unit is pretty weak and losing Chandler Parsons had quite a trickle-down effect. Clark is still nowhere near being on the fantasy map.

Grizzlies waive PF Earl Clark.

Clark didn't make a big impression during training camp and his journeyman path through the NBA will have to continue in another city than Memphis. In five NBA season, he's played for the Suns, Magic, Lakers, Cavaliers and Knicks.

The Grizzlies have invited Earl Clark to training camp on an unguaranteed contract.

Clark has five years of NBA experience, splitting the 2013-14 season between the Cavaliers and Knicks. He shot very poorly last year and is barely above 40 percent from the field during his pro career, and he's a longshot to make the Grizzlies' final roster.

Free agent F Earl Clark will work out for the Spurs this week.

Clark is coming off a disappointing 2013-14 season with the Cavaliers and Knicks, averaging 4.8 points on 37.2 percent shooting in limited action. The Spurs added rookie Kyle Anderson to a group of backup forwards which also includes Boris Diaw, Jeff Ayres and Austin Daye, so Clark won't be a fantasy asset if he signs in San Antonio.

Earl Clark's contract with the Knicks expired on Thursday.

New York declined to sign him for the rest of the season, and they no longer required him with Amare Stoudemire and Tyson Chandler both healthy and playing well. Clark hasn't been a fantasy asset in Cleveland or New York this season, but he may well get picked up on another 10-day deal before the season ends.

Earl Clark played six minutes against the Heat on Thursday with two points.

He should get some minutes for the Knicks as they look to solve their perpetual problems at forward. Clark's jumper fell apart with Cleveland and there's little reason to think he'll get it going with the change of scenery.

Earl Clark could see some playing time against the Heat Thursday night.

The newly-signed Clark most likely won't see the court against the Heat, but coach Mike Woodson said he would be available if other players get into foul trouble. Clark is only averaging 5.2 points and 2.8 rebounds this season, so his fantasy value is essentially non-existent even if he finds his way onto the court against LeBron and company.

The Knicks and free agent F Earl Clark are finalizing a contract agreement, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

This confirms earlier reports about the Knicks' interest in Clark, whom New York wants for his defensive abilities. He'll assume of the roster spots freed up by the departure of Metta World Peace and Beno Udrih. The Knicks may also have interest in signing free agent Dahntay Jones, but neither Clark nor Jones figures to have any fantasy value in standard formats.

The Knicks are "pursuing" free agent F Earl Clark, according to Yahoo! Sports.

Clark recently cleared waivers after being released by the 76ers and his defensive prowess is exactly what the Knicks are looking for as they fill out their 15-man roster. Deep league owners may want to keep an eye on him but he's averaging 5.2 points and 2.8 rebounds this season and wouldn't get enough playing time off the Knicks bench to make a dent in standard leagues.

Sixers waive F/C Earl Clark.

The team had to cut someone after making their moves today and they chose to keep their young guy. Clark was not a good fit the Sixers with his jumper falling apart lately and not being able to integrate himself in the two-man game. He can be cut in all leagues.

Earl Clark is expected to see more minutes with the Sixers following Thursday's deadline.

He basically split his 15.5 minutes per game at both forward spots with the Cavs and should at least get in the 20s with his new team. There is really no bigger wild card than Clark for Philly's system, but not being adept as a roll man and his struggles shooting the rock won't help. He's gone completely cold from downtown in 2014, making just 14.7 percent from that range as part of his overall 32.1 percent from the field in that span. Still, he's an athletic enough power forward to get run in the up-tempo offense and can actually defend small forwards, unlike most of his teammates. He's worth a look in some formats as a decent upside pickup.

Cavs Forward Earl Clark will reportedly be included in the Spencer Hawes deal, according to David Aldridge.

Clark would back up Thaddeus Young, unless Young gets traded. And if that happens, it's even possible Clark could start at power forward in Philly. Clark isn't likely to be a strong fantasy option, even if starting. There's also a possibility the Sixers could still be working on sending some of their second-round picks to Houston for Omer Asik.
