15-year NBA veteran Antawn Jamison agreed to a one-year contract with the Clippers on Monday for the veteran’s minimum of about $1.4 million. Jamison spent last year with the Los Angeles Lakers as Dwight Howard adjusted to the system along with veteran point guard Steve Nash. Antawn Jamison recently shared:
“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.”
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 is looking to bounce back for a tough season of injuries and career lows and contribute to an already talented Clippers roster.
The big question here is will Jamison fit in with Doc Rivers system?
