The San Antonio Spurs are reportedly set to workout free agent Earl Clark.

Clark is a 6’10″ forward and played with the Cavaliers and Knicks last season.
Drafted by the Suns in the 2009 NBA Draft, Earl has played for the Magic, Lakers, Cavs and Knicks.
He has career averages of 4.4 points, 3 rebounds, shooting 40 percent in 14.1 minutes. Clark’s best season came in the 2012-13 season with the Lakers as he averaged 7.3 points, and 5.5 rebounds in 23.1 minutes. Though his career shooting percentages of 40.4 percent from the floor and 33.1 percent from 3-point line are suspect and may ultimately doom his chances at wearing the silver and black considering the Spurs like to use shooting big men to stretch the floor.
Earl would address the Spurs lack of an athletic, mobile big man in the paint. However, with Aron Baynes still a free agent, could this be a signal the Spurs might be passing on re-upping the big man from Australia?
