PHOENIX — New city, new fans, new organization, new coach, new teammates and even a new jersey number.

July 10th, 2010 · 14 Comments

LAS VEGAS — If you were expecting Earl Clark to turn into a bonafide NBA player this summer league, you’ve got to be disappointed about the Louisville product’s first two games.
