Earl Clark will head to unrestricted free agency after opting out of the final year of his contract with the Orlando Magic. The former lottery pick has struggled in his three years in the NBA, but at just 24-years-old, he'll be hoping that there's an NBA team out there that still believes in his potential.

Clark has averaged 3.1 points and 2.1 rebounds over 10.2 minutes per game during his NBA career so far. He averaged more minutes and played more total minutes in the 2011-12 season than any previous season in his career, but his rebounding numbers did not pick up considerably, while his shooting percentage and points per game dipped considerably from the 2010-11 season. He could struggle to find suitors in the free agent market, but still has time to turn his career around.
