NBA veteran Earl Clark, who was cut by the Nets last year, will play in Turkey next season, according to Orazio Cauchi of Sportando. Clark, who played in the D-League and China in 2015/16, will sign a deal with the Besiktas franchise.
Clark last played for Brooklyn at the end of the 2014/15 season, averaging 2.7 points and 2.3 rebounds in 10 games. The Nets signed the 6’10” power forward in late March of 2015, but released him during the offseason. He was part of a D-League trade in January, going from the Suns‘ Bakersfield affiliate to the Sixers‘ Delaware affiliate.
The 28-year-old had a journeyman NBA career after the Suns made him a lottery pick out of Louisville in 2009. He also played for the Magic, Lakers, Cavaliers and Knicks during his six years in the league. Clark’s best season was with L.A. in 2012/13, when he averaged 7.3 points per night in 59 games.
