The last couple of days have not been kind to the New York Knicks. The team waived Beno Udrih and Metta World Peace, and have now lost Raymond Felton, who was arrested for gun charges and will appear in front of a court. Iman Shumpert is also out with a knee injury, and the Knicks are looking to reload through the free agent market. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo, Earl Clark, who was traded by the Cleveland Cavaliers and then released by the Philadelphia 76ers, is in the team’s crosshairs.

The New York Knicks are pursuing a deal with free-agent forward Earl Clark, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

The Knicks are trying to sign two defensive-minded players before meeting the Miami Heat on Thursday in Miami, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Clark earned himself a contract with the Cavaliers after a successful final stretch with the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2012-13 season, but underperformed and was moved in the deal which sent Spencer Hawes to Cleveland.

It looks like Clark won’t be the only player the Knicks will sign before an important game against the reigning champions on Thursday and it remains to be seen who the other player will be.
