Paul George was named the Most Improved Player earlier today with a landslide victory, and it was a well-deserved one at that. However, a current member of the Los Angeles Lakers received a few votes too.
Earl Clark received 3 third place votes from a panel of 120 media members. Clark, who came to the Lakers as part of the Dwight Howard trade, averaged a career-high 7.3 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game during the regular season, while shooting 33% from three. Interestingly, three guys involved in the Howard trade received MIP votes: Clark, Nikola Vucevic and Arron Afflalo.
Clark will be an unrestricted free agent this summer.
