CLEVELAND -- A person with knowledge of the negotiations says the Cleveland Cavaliers have reached agreement on a two-year contract with free agent forward Earl Clark.
Clark, who played for the Los Angeles Lakers last season, met for two days with the Cavs earlier this week. The deal is worth $9 million, said the person who spoke to the Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because NBA teams can't announce free-agent signings until July 10.
The Sporting News first reported Clark's deal.
The 6-foot-10 Clark set career-highs in scoring (7.3), rebounds (5.5) and minutes (23.1) in 36 starts last season. Before joining the Lakers, Clark played for Orlando and Phoenix.
He was drafted in the first round (No. 14 overall) by the Suns in 2009 after playing at Louisville.
