Antawn Jamison and Jermaine O'Neal could be headed to the Los Angeles Lakers on minimum contracts, according to Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports. The two would help solidify the Lakers' frontcourt while the team continues to deal with bigger names like Dwight Howard and Andrew Bynum.

Jamison averaged 17.2 points in 33.1 minutes per game with the Cleveland Cavaliers last season. He shot a career worst 40.3 percent from the floor, however. With the Lakers he would likely take on a less scoring-focused role, allowing him to simply be a solid defender and rebounder.
O'Neal has averaged a tick over five points per game over his last two seasons with the Boston Celtics. Like Jamison, his days of serving a major role on the court are likely over, but he can still provide some defensive energy off the bench.
