AUGUST 10TH, 4:02pm: The move has indeed taken place, the team announced via press release.

AUGUST 3RD, 8:07pm: The Nets will waive forward Earl Clark this week so that he can pursue a deal elsewhere, league sources told RealGM’s Shams Charania (Twitter link). Mike Mazzeo of confirms the impending transaction and notes that the Nets will be down to 16 players under contract for the upcoming season (Twitter links).

Clark epitomizes the journeyman label, having played for six teams since entering the league in 2009/10. The 6’10” Clark appeared in 10 games with the Nets last season, averaging 2.7 points and 2.3 rebounds in 9.3 minutes. 

Back in June, Alex Kennedy of Basketball Insiders reported that the 27-year-old wanted to stay with Brooklyn but his non-guaranteed salary made him expendable (Twitter links). Clark was scheduled to earn $1,185,784.

    Always thought Clark could be a good 3-and-D type player. I wonder if a team like Pacers give him a look. He could be revive his career in a small-ball lineup.

      Too bad for Clark that Mike. D’Antoni didn’t get the Nuggets job. Clark had his best days playing for D’Antoni with the Lakers. You’re right, though. A fast-paced attack suits him well.
