After news came out earlier today that the Clippers and F Antawn Jamison were in contract talks, the Clips have officially signed the 15-year veteran to a 1-year deal worth the veteran’s minimum, about $1.4 million.
Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports reported that the Chicago Bulls and Memphis Grizzlies were also interested in adding the versatile forward, but Jamison wanted to sign with LA all along.
â€śJust happy to be a Clipper and contend for a championship,â€ť Jamison told ESPN Los Angeles’s Ramona Shelbourne.
Jamison averaged 9.4 PPG and 4.8 RPG in 21.5 minutes a game last season with the Lakers.
