earl clark should be our backup SF once we get our full squad back(idk what position he'll play without our bigs)

i will always say, our 2nd unit's biggest need is a player who can create offense off the dribble; Clark certainly doesnt provide that, but, our 2nd unit sure could use some more offensive rebounds, so our pathetic offensive players in that unit can have more opportunities to put the ball in the hoop.
imagine a unit with Clark and Hill, i bet alot potential offenseive rebounds would be tapped around, if not gotten. Clark can provide intangibles that a weak offensive unit needs - offensive rebounds , and cutting to open areas.

now onto the other side of the ball. Clark provides the length and athleticism that this team needs, especially in the 2nd unit.
with the way the 2nd unit scores the ball(or actually,doesnt), they could use all of the defense/stops they can get.
Clark has proven to be a decent shot blocker/rim protecter. having Clark/Hill actively looking for weakside blocks, i think it would be a good/effective thing.

hey matt barnes lovers - i think we've found our matt barnes, in earl clark. earl may not be the 3point shooter that matt is(which wasnt much of a 3pt shooter for us), but Clark makes up for that on the other end with the way he protects the rim. clark and matt are two very similar players - hustle players who bring the intangibles

I'm not saying Earl is the savior, but things should be experimented with. Jordan Hill was behind McRoberts and Murphy for a while last year, and he turned out to be a great backup big. Earl has done well in limited minutes, and he can play defense. He's young, athletic, etc. This useless player we have, what's his name, Antawn? He doesn't deserve playing time.

Came on here to say the same thing. Now he just needs to keep it up for more than just 2 games.

22 points
13 rebounds

His mid range is well, defense is solid, he can penetrate to the rim, really impressive.

He should back up the 3.

Mitch really finds these washed up 1st rd picks and turns them into quality players!

Hill picked 8th in 09

Clark picked 14th in 10

Clark is legit. Like his game. Simple shooter that gets rebounds. We really need a guy like him.

How has he been riding the bench all year?!?

No one gave him a chance to shine. That's why. I'm excited for Earl Clark. He took the opportunity and seized it. Love it.

Give him the back up three position.
 

Trade for Austin Rivers, say, Hill & Johnson.

look,whos talking man. sacre? please,please!

clark is a hustle player, i dont expect his J to be anywhere near consistent, but, his rebounding,D at multiple postitions,blocked shots,cutting. our 2nd unit could use those. play him at the 3. (this was the game of his life)
