The Brooklyn Nets announced on Friday that they have signed forward Earl Clark to a 10-day contract.

Clark played in China this season after appearing in 54 games with the Cleveland Cavaliers and New York Knicks last season.

Clark has also had stints with the Orlando Magic and Phoenix Suns, who selected him in the first round of the 2009 draft out of Louisville.

Over 252 total games, Clark has averaged 4.4 points and 3.0 rebounds.

On Friday night, Clark scored seven points in 11 minutes to help the Nets beat the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Brooklyn's signing of Clark comes after forward Thaddeus Young suffered a left knee strain Wednesday against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Nets currently sit a half game back of the Boston Celtics for the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference.

Brooklyn hosts the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday.
