This was expected and it didn’t take long.
The Philadelphia 76ers picked up Earl Clark from Cleveland as part of the Spencer Hawes trade. With all the players Philly picked up in a flurry of moves at the deadline they had 16 players on the roster, one more than the league maximum. Someone had to go.
Clark has been waived by the Sixers, the team announced. He will be on waivers for 48 hours and be an unrestricted free agent once he clears them (he will, nobody is going to pick up his contract, which was signed this summer — two years, $8.5 million, the second year not guaranteed).
Clark played a fair amount of minutes for the Cavs because Mike Brown didn’t really have other good options before the Luol Deng trade. Clark averaged 5.2 points and 2.8 rebounds a game for Cleveland.
