Free-agent power forward Earl Clark agreed to a two-year deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers worth $9 million, reports the Sporting News.
The second year of the deal is a team option.
Clark, 25, averaged 7.3 points and 5.5 rebounds last season for the Los Angeles Lakers while starting 36 games subbing in for an injured Pau Gasol. He came to the Lakers as part of the Dwight Howard deal.
The former 2009 first-round pick out of Louisville was originally drafted by the Phoenix Suns and also spent time with the Orlando Magic.
