LA Clippers Sign Antawn Jamison to One-Year Deal

Free agent forward Antawn Jamison, as expected, will stay in Los Angeles. The Clippers snapped up the former Laker on a one-year, veteran’s minimum contract. Per the LA Times: “The veteran free agent agreed to a one-year contract with the Clippers on Monday for the veteran’s minimum of about $1.4 million, bolstering a bench that last season was among the best in the league. ‘Ready to come and help out as much as possible,’ said Jamison, who has career averages of 18.8 points, 7.6 rebounds and 1.7 assists, ‘and hopefully I’m the piece that can take us to the top.’ Jamison, a 15-year veteran who spent last season with the Lakers on another minimum deal, has stated his desire to play for a title contender at this point in his career. He has never reached the conference finals in previous stints with the Golden State Warriors, Dallas Mavericks, Washington Wizards, Cleveland Cavaliers and Lakers. The 6-foot-9 forward had an uneven season with the Lakers, averaging career lows in points (9.4), rebounds (4.8), assists (0.7) and minutes (21.5) while shooting 46.4%. He underwent surgery in late April to repair an injured right wrist. Jamison, 37, also suffered hurt feelings at times last season. He publicly criticized Lakers Coach Mike D’Antoni for a lack of communication over his playing time and skipped exit interviews after the team was swept by the San Antonio Spurs in the first round of the playoffs.”

    good for both sides, but now where will my dude Odom go?!

  • Shifty

    Odom will be a tough sign with all this crack cocaine bizzo going down. I don’t see many teams wanting to take on that kinda of publicity.

    before last season Jamison had a pretty amazing career as far as stats. not bad someone who was considered a tweener stuck in between positions before he got drafted.

    20000 career points is no joke

    Having looked back at my comments the last year or so regarding this team *** I think I’ll just sh*t the f*ck up****
    So, w/out speculating, hyperbole or agenda, all I can say is; this move can only help the team. Go Clipps.

    I guess that dinner with Doc Rivers must have gone well.

    I really hate watching Jamison play, but in his prime he really got the job done. Amazing finisher around the basket and he can’t jump over a phonebook. Flip shot game is bar none.

    More than McGrady, for context.
