Los Angeles Lakers' free agent forward Earl Clark will meet with the Cleveland Cavaliers for a second time on Wednesday, according to Sean Deveny of Sporting News. The Cavaliers have not offered Clark a contract yet, but the sides are said to have great "mutual interest".

The Lakers contacted Clark's agent shortly after free agency officially began to establish interest, as expected. Clark was a surprise for Los Angeles during the 2012-2013 season after initially being considered a "throw-in" for Dwight Howard last Summer.

Los Angeles is not expected to be interested in signing Clark to a multi-year deal, according to Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News. Their approach to free agency is to minimize guaranteed salary beyond the 2013-2014 season, making the ability to retain a player like Clark a difficult task.

Clark repeatedly stated that he wants to stay with the Lakers, especially after having an opportunity to become a rotation player, and starter, under Mike D'Antoni.
