Earl Clark said that he's "cool" with coming off the bench when Pau Gasol returns from his foot injury.
"It's cool with me," man, Clark said. "I just want to play. I never got caught up in starting." It's a refreshing answer from Clark, who has tailed off since the All-Star break with averages of 7.6 points, 6.0 rebounds, 0.7 steals and 0.6 blocks on 41.6 percent shooting. Mike D'Antoni still plans to feature Clark "heavily" in the rotation despite the move to the bench. "I think I deserve that," Clark said.
