Sixers waive Earl Clark

Now that was fast.

Sixers waive Earl Clark

Now that was fast.

The 76ers waived Earl Clark hours after acquiring the forward along with center Henry Sims and a 2014 second-round pick in a trade for Spencer Hawes on Thursday morning. The move trimmed the Sixers’ roster to 15 players, the maximum number allowed on NBA rosters.

Clark was the 14th overall pick by the Phoenix Suns in 2009. The 26-year-old has also played for the Orlando Magic and Los Angeles Lakers. He was in the final year of his contract.

The 6-foot-10, fifth-year veteran out of Louisville  averaged 5.2 points and 2.8 rebounds this season for the Cavs, with 17 starts. However, he has only played in four of the Cavs' last 10 games. Against the Sixers on Tuesday, Clark didn't attempt a shot or score a point and had one rebound in 6 minutes, 53 seconds.
