Antawn Jamison Reportedly Close to Deal With LA Clippers

Free agent Antawn Jamison has various suitors this summer — Memphis and Chicago among them — but it’s the LA Clippers who are said to be the closest to finalizing a deal with the veteran forward. Per ESPN: “Jamison, 37, played for the Los Angeles Lakers last season, averaging 9.4 points and 4.8 rebounds. He has been unabashed in his desire to play for a championship contender in the final years of a 15-year career in which he has averaged 18.8 points and 7.6 rebounds. He will likely surpass 20,000 career points early next season. Jamison played through torn wrist ligaments for much of the second half of last season with the Lakers. He had offseason surgery and expects to be 100 percent at the start of the season.”

    I take it then that the dinner with the Doc went well…

    I love this signing to open up more room in the paint for Chris Paul, and either BG, or DJ to do work.. they can now replace BJ Mullens with Antawn, and their team is now looking pretty solid.. I can’t wait to start watching them do work in the West!

    Still waiting to know when you’ll be buying my lunch.

    Jamison is one of the smartest offensive players, off-the-ball, in NBA history. Chris Paul just added two assists per game to his counter.

    Jamison never had a problem scoring. Even in college, he was the no1 option at North Carolina and Vince Carter was on that team.

    His defense always was the problem……I’m curious to see how Doc Rivers will address that.

    Funneling their defence into Jordan, obviously. He’ll appropriate Thibodeau’s scheme to the Clippers’ roster.
