Earl Clark: Signs with Turkish club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clark signed a one-year contract Thursday with Besiktas Basketbol of the Turkish Basketball Super League, Sportando reports.

Clark, a 2009 first-round pick, has spent parts of six seasons in the NBA with the Suns, Magic, Lakers, Cavaliers and Knicks and Nets, but didn't appear in a single game last season with any team. He split the 2015-16 campaign between the D-League and Chinese Basketball Association, and will now head over to Turkey as he looks to eventually make his way back to the NBA. At 28 years old, Clark is far from over the hill, but the odds are still probably against him reemerging on the NBA radar.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clark signed a contract Tuesday with Henan of the Chinese National Basketball League, Sportando reports.

The 14th overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft, Clark hasn't appeared in the league since 2014-15, when he logged 10 games with the Nets. He failed to win a spot with the club in training camp last fall, and ended up finishing the season as a member of the D-League's Delaware 87ers. Clark will look to reestablish some value in China before perhaps getting another look from NBA teams.
