This is what I was talking about in regards to Dwight yesterday. The Lakers cant make any moves at all until Dwight decides and now we lost Earl Clark. asdpofiuaspdfuasdof

Another awesome clueless move by our organization ... He isn't all that but still can improve ... AND you know he fits today's style of play ...

It's Dwight's fault we didn't give Clark 4.5 mil per season? :man3: Get real people, the guy had a great stretch here and then fell off hard, he's not worth 9 mil 2 years, Cleveland overpaid and good luck to them and good for Earl, glad for him. We could not give him more than 2-3 mil, and he was not worth more than that, if proves me wrong next season, great, but most likely he turns into Ariza after he leaves here, forgotten and bricking shots left and right. You guys that are mad have got to be joking, had we given him 4.5 mil per season people would be screaming we overpaid and what a dumb move my Mitch in the middle of next season when he would have inevitably hit a slump.

^I would agree with that assessment. He had one good stretch in his entire NBA career in which has been a model of inconsistency since is time in Phoenix & Orlando. WTS, I would have liked to keep him; nevertheless, with this new CBA, you have to use be cautious with with who and how you spend your money...

What in the flying hell are people complaining about now? This has nothing to do with Dwight or our front office, there's now way we could/should pay Clark $4.5 million per year.

I'm sad he's gone and would've hoped he'd come back to us for cheap, but happy for him that he found such a good contract offer and I hope he lives up to it in Cleveland.

4.5 M is a little more than expected but it's not like every player on this roster minus Hill isn't overpaid ... and Clark , unlike the others , is young and athletic

Good for him, he's not worth that much on this team. Not sure why he wants to go play for Brown though. I figured he was gone when he met with them in consecutive days.

With all the SFs we were targeting, it doesn't surprise me he's out. Kenyon Martin...come on down.

$4.5mil/yr is not that bad for Earl and besides we could've afforded him since we have his bird rights. We have no athletes on the wing now.

Overpaid. No way we pay him 4.5M. Good guy, works hard, but he is not worth that money. I wish him all the best.

This absolutely. Weezy too.

Good for Clark. He got himself a big offer for no reason from a team that is stacked at the position he plays. Good for him. I wish him well. He's not worth 4.5 million for two years. He's worth 3 million or so tops.

We are ridiculously over the cap. You don't pay a bench guy that has been average at best his whole career that had maybe 2 months of impressive play 4.5 million dollars to take a chance. You take a risk at 2-3 mil, not almost the full MLE. When you take a risk like that based on a little flash of good play in a contract year you can end up with Deaven George and Luke Walton.

Man you're freaking out over Earl Clark. a guy who only got a shot this year by accident. He had a good stretch, but dude is not worth 4.5 mil here. Take a step back, take a breath, and think about what you're this pissed about, what the Lakers didn't do. They didn't overpay for a player you can kinda replace easier than a lot of others, and Earl Clark is not going to be the difference in a championship for us. Go back and watch his last month of the season and playoffs, where he couldn't hit the ocean if he fell off a boat, then tell me we made a huge mistake not gambling with big money for him.

i am just disappointed earl left for $, when he said he really didn't care that much about the $. he isn't worth what he got in CLE, but now we have another void to fill. and if earl clark doesn't even want to stay, what about dwight?

^ Earl took money to leave. Am I disappointed? Sure. But he left because he got a better financial offer.

There's NO better financial offer for Dwight out there than the Lakers. If he leaves it's because he foolishly believes there's a better spot for him to win a ring or he's just not up for it.

I liked Clark. Anyone know what the Lakers offered? I wonder if he would have stayed If lakers offered less $$ per year but 3 years instead of 2, like 3 yr 12million

lakersyunowin, you can't be disappointed in a guy for doing what's best for him. This was a guy destined to make at best 1 mil per season his whole career in the NBA. But because he got an opportunity here, he got a shot at getting PAID by his standards, and good for him, I'd take it too. You're being unrealistic if you think Earl should have been loyal and taken 4 mil here over 9 mil there, this is a business, it's easy for us to say he should take less money, but it's not our money or family to support. When he said he'd take less money here he was probably thinking he'd get offered 5 elsewhere and take 4 here, but you get 9, you freakin take it.

And Rock, what about Dwight, if he doesn't want to stay he doesn't want to stay, oh well. He can get the most money here, that's not the issue.

yea i guess i worded that poorly. it's hard to turn down a pay-raise that large. i think maybe more accurately it's just disappointing that we lose him...not so much the person disappointing me. i just have this impending sense of disappointment regarding players leaving this team (wink wink), so it's all a bit of a downer.
