Cleveland Cavaliers are reported to have agreed a deal to sign Earl Clark for the new NBA season, after the young forward became a free agent after leaving LA Lakers.

Sean Deveney of Sporting News reports on Twitter than the 25-year-old and the Cavaliers have agreed terms on a two-year contract, that will earn Clark $9 million over the course of the deal.

Further reports claim the second year of the deal will be an option for Cleveland, rather than for the player himself, who is set to join his fourth NBA franchise since his draft in 2009.

Clark reached career high totals with LA Lakers last season of 7.3 points and 5.5 rebounds per game, having made 36 starts owing to the the injuries sustained by Pau Gasol and Dwight Howard.

Their return, however, seemingly made Clark surplus to requirements with the Lakers, and he appears set to leave Los Angeles to forge a new career with the Cavaliers.

Clark is not the only power forward to have joined the Cleveland roster in the offseason, with Anthony Bennett of UNLV the first selection of the NBA draft, while further competition for the two comes from Tristan Thompson, a former No.4 pick.
