by August 26, 2013

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.”
