Antawn Jamison

Report: Clippers speaking to veteran Antawn Jamison


Antawn Jamison was frustrated last season with the way he was used — and often not used — in the Lakers constantly-changing rotations.

But the 37-year-old also showed he could still shoot the rock — 36 percent from three, 46 percent overall. He can contribute to a team in a limited role.

And that team may be the other one in Los Angeles, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.

The Clippers are choosing between Lamar Odom and Jamison for that final big off the bench role.

I can see Jamison and his floor-spacing shooting fitting in with the Clippers, both on the pick-and-roll and running to the arc in transition with the Clippers second unit. For one year at the veteran minimum this would be a good fit.

Between Hezonja, Elfrid Payton, Victor Oladipo and Aaron Gordon, the Magic have a nucleus of young players that has the potential to be a lot of fun. Even if they’re still a few years away from contending, they’re definitely going to be a League Pass favorite this year.
