Free agent forward Antawn Jamison could be joining the Los Angeles Clippers and is expected to make a decision soon, according to Ramona Shelburne of ESPN. Jamison signed a one-year contract with the Los Angeles Lakers last summer and is not expected to return.
Jamison finished his season with the Lakers with torn ligaments in his wrist. He underwent surgery immediately following the Lakers' playoff exit and is already out of his cast. He is expected to be cleared for basketball activities in a month.
The Clippers have been active this summer and could add the versatile scoring forward to their already deep roster. Jamison averaged a career-low 9.4 points per game in 2012-13. He played only 21.5 minutes per game, also a career low.
Jamison would give head coach Doc Rivers a player who can play at either forward position, is a solid cutter and can help spread the floor to work into his rotation. The deal would likely be for the veteran's minimum.
