After Shannon & Ariza, I won't count out a young athletic player.. On an old team like ours that's so reliant on skill over athleticism, a guy like Clark has a chance to bring something unique to the rotation.

Well, he comes from one of the top college basketball programs in the country. He seems to have good defensive instincts and being 6'10" he can play the 3/4. I mean I wouldn't mind giving him a shot. He could be a surprise and show us something.

When Hill came in during the OKC game in that double OT thriller, he came in and shined. I was pleasantly surprised on what he brought to the table the rest of the regular season and in the playoffs. Not saying it would happen to this kid, but you never know. It could be another option to throw at Durant...

the thing that i originally asked no one confirmed was that he did not accept the qualiying offer when he was in Orl. So i'm not even sure he's under contract but yet some how he was able to be traded.

Found this from Alex Kennedy:

Earl Clark has changed his mind and opted in to the final year of his contact with the Magic, according to sources close to the situation.

He had a player option and exercised it, he's under contract.....

Earl Clark changes his mind and accepts his Magic player option
By Josh Robbins, Orlando Sentinel


3:28 p.m. EST, July 1, 2012
Although Earl Clark originally informed the Orlando Magic that he would decline his player option for the upcoming season, the 6-foot-10 forward changed his mind and exercised the option.

The paperwork necessary for Clark to opt in was filed Friday before his deadline, said Clark's agent, Happy Walters. The move ensured that Clark will remain under contract for the next 12 months and will receive a salary of $1.24 million.

^sounds like a good dude...

but when you are a lottery bigman and it takes you 3 years to record your first double double, damn thats not good. If he was considered a good prospect, Orlando would have probably sticked with him. When a rebuilding team gets rid of an athletic big guy who was drafted and praised in the lottery...thats kind of not good.

When we traded for Adam Morrison... Shannon Brown was the surprise (at least, the player with more minutes of the trade).

Can be Earl Clark a "surprise or hidden player" in this trade?

I know... only dreaming, as I didn't see him too much but... size and athleticism together... always welcome.

Go Lakers !!

Other than the video above, I've never seen this guy play. Looks all right. Not much better than McBobs, but he seems to be less shy about shooting, at least on this particular night. His mid-range looks pretty decent. McBobs had great energy and also a decent mid-range, but just wouldn't shoot. If this guy can come in occasionally and bring energy, block shots, play some good help D, rebound and knock down the occasional shot that would be terrific.

We build through the draft alright. Let other teams draft them. We sit and wait to see if they pan out and grab them.

Why waste time with draft picks when the NBA is our minor league system. :man12: :man9:

Huh, I don't expect much, or anything really, from Clark, but at least he looks like he can hit an open shot and he's pretty tall at least. :mhihi:

^Lanky, moves well, good form on his J, provides very good help D... Hopefully he'll see some time on the floor to showcase those attributes. Clark looks more polished than Eyenga ever was.
