Jamison Could Return to Cavs Next Year
With that being said, it’s not totally out of the question that they re-sign (Antawn) Jamison to a cap-friendly contract starting around $5 million. The Cavs would have to be clear with the 6-foot-9, 235-pounder that they are committed to Tristan Thompson as being the starter at power forward next year.
If Jamison would agree to come off the bench and continue to mentor young players like Thompson, it wouldn’t be totally outlandish for him to return.
If he thinks he can still earn a starting job elsewhere, go to a team that has a good chance at going deep into the playoffs or get paid way more than the Cavs would be willing to offer, then wish him luck and send him on his way.
The Cavs could be a playoff team — should be, actually — next season if a consistent wing scorer and another quality big are added to the mix.
