Do we have to sweat Hill too or do we have him for this coming season?

If it was a small difference between what the Lakers offered and what other teams offered, I could have seen Clark staying. But the difference is too big to be overcome for a player who isn't worth that contract. Sorry to see him go, but would be a lot more sorry had the FO replayed the Luke Walton and Devean George cards and overpaid him as they did those two.

I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Anyone the Lakers sign in FA - take their number and multiply roughly by 5 to get their cost with luxury tax. Clark at $4 mil = $20 mil

Definitely not worth it.

Please tell me again how Clark is worth it. Just too much money for him. No way.

Sad to see Clark go after he 'made his name' as a Laker last season. But no way Lakers should have paid that money for him especially with Luxury Tax implications. Good for him. He got a good deal and took it.

Mind you, D12 needs to bleep make this bleep decision already.....I mean seriously?!

well
the contract itself is worth it, 2 years 9 mil

the luxury tax penalties is totally not worth it.

I wish he could have.stayed. It be nice to find a diamond in the rough and watch him shine with the Lakers. Like with Kobe, Fisher, and sort of Bynum. I guess I'll just follow Hill.

It's too bad he didn't resign but you can't blame him. He was really headed no where until this past season, so I'm glad that he was able to land a nice contract even if it wasn't with us.

With that said I felt his best play came at the 4 spot, but with Pau and Hill already getting minutes there it didn't seem he would see much PT unless Hill didn't get any.

Sad to see him go, he played well. But when it comes down to it, he made the right move. Good for him, get paid while you can.

yea I liked Clark but he wasn't worth 20 mil to the team
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

Exactly. With Howard gone, Clark seemed a little expendable. I'd rather give those minutes to Hill where he can crash the boards with the best of them.

Endless respect to Clark for having a hard working mentality and effort that deserved to be in the league. So many superstars these days seem to barely give a crap half the time and it's always good to see solid, skilled players doing work in the old fashioned way. Sucks to see him go, but this makes a lot of sense for him and the Cavaliers will probably appreciate his presence.

On a different note... Cavs are going to be a really interesting...

They get the #1 draft pick, they get Jarret Jack, Earl Clark & are going after Bynum...

Could be a fun team.
