    Any idea why we have not brought him up to our team. He is 6'10 Dorsey and Black are what 6'8? We need to bring in some height. What do you guys think

    At some point i think that's a move you have to make. Probably not until you can move Dorsey.

    Earl Clark is a 4 who plays like a lesser Jones, so Bringing him up wont help the paint problems

    Clark can't play backup center, he's a PF/SF, and he's not better than what we have now.

    A lesser Jones is better than Soft-MO.

    If we're counting on Earl Clark to make a difference for this team, we may as well tank. Brings back bad memories of the Yao era :eek::eek:

    We're riddled with injuries and really Earl Clark is really an answer to the backup 4 position.

    This isn't crazy unorthodox. Most contending teams aren't that deep and while they may be good 1-6 there might be holes in that 7, 8, or even 9 spot that have to get patched.

    Unless you are the Spurs of course in which Pop just turns every role player into a serviceable cog.

    He hurt his ankle in the last game.

    Clark has 4 years of experience in the NBA. Adrien also had that NBA experience. Ultimately that counts for something vis-a-vis what Black and Dorsey bring or do not bring to the team.

    Earl Clark sucks, he really really sucks. The Lakers can have him, they belong together.

    Year in and year out his Xrapm is near the very bottom of the league. It's not a perfect stat, but when it is consistently that terrible you can believe it.

    Here are the yearly leaders. Earl Clark is very easy to find, go all the way to the bottom and go up. His number is comically bad.

    I guess Morey will wait till December 15th to get deal through but I hope he does get a true back C. No more PF trying to play C.
