Report: Knicks To Sign Earl Clark, Shannon Brown

Earl Clark

The Knicks needed another big, and some perimeter defense, so why not go out and sign two guys for a week right?

The New York Post is reporting that the Knicks are likely to sign veteran big man Earl Clark, and veteran guard Shannon Brown.

After acquiring him in a trade with the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday, Philadelphia released Clark, 26, and he cleared waivers to become a free agent.

The Knicks want a big man and a perimeter defender and league sources said they are on the verge of adding 6-foot-10 New Jersey product Earl Clark plus 6-foot-4 Shannon Brown, an eight-season veteran, on 10-day contracts.

Clark, a 26-year-old veteran of five NBA seasons and four teams, and Brown, whose second 10-day contract with San Antonio expired last week, are expected to join the team on 10-day contracts for the game in Miami Thursday. Clark and Brown would fill the roster spots created through the buyouts of Metta World Peace and Beno Udrih.
