After being knocked out of the playoffs on Sunday night, the Los Angeles Lakers wrap up the season with their annual exit interviews. Players first meet with Mitch Kupchak and Mike D’Antoni, before then taking questions from the media. Click here to see a list of all the interviews added so far.
Earl Clark was the steal of the Dwight Howard trade, at least for the Lakers it was. When everyone else went down with injury, Clark got his chance and stepped up. In February, Clark averaged 10.3 points, 8.4 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game, while shooting 54% from three.
However, Clark got bit by the injury bug himself – and maybe hit a little bit of a wall seeing as it was the first time he consistently got major minutes – and so he saw his production dip over the last few months.
Clark will be a free agent this summer, and in his exit interview, he talked about wanting to return to Los Angeles next season.
