Clark, 34, is 6-foot-9 and was the No. 14 overall pick in 2009. He has spent time with the Suns, Magic, Lakers, Cavaliers, Knicks, Nets and in the G League.

But he last appeared in the NBA in 2015 and has been playing internationally since, most recently in Spain.

He actually signed with the G League’s Sioux Falls Skyforce in December, but was waived almost a month later without having appeared in a game.

Per the Skyforce press release when Clark was acquired a few months back: 

“Clark has spent parts of the last seven seasons playing overseas, with Ulsan Mobis Phoebus of the South Korean Basketball League being the most recent in 2021-22, as he averaged 12.1 points on 48.5 percent shooting, 7.7 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.4 blocks in 23 games (14 starts).

“He spent three seasons at Louisville, before declaring for the draft, and averaged 10.6 points on 46.7 percent shooting, 7.0 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 104 games (63 starts). Clark led the Cardinals to the Elite Eight of the 2009 NCAA Tournament as a junior, as he averaged 15.5 points in the tournament and scored 13-plus points in 10 of his last 13 collegiate games.”
