Jamison Won’t Re-Sign With Cavaliers
Antawn Jamison said goodbye to Cleveland tonight, making official what already seemed so obvious. Tonight was his last home game and Thursday’s game at Chicago will be his last game in a Cavaliers jersey.
Jamison has been everything the Cavaliers could have hoped for this season and more, despite his low shooting percentage and defensive struggles. What he has meant to Tristan Thompson’s development and in the locker room in general has been invaluable and will be difficult to replace.
Jamison is a free agent after tomorrow. Asked if he has made up his mind about not returning next season, he said “I think we both have.”
“I understand the importance of Tristan (Thompson) and these younger guys getting the opportunity to play,” he continued. “I’ve taught them so much and it’s been fun teaching them, but it’s time for me to move on as well. I don’t know what the future holds, I don’t know what opportunity might present itself, but I definitely have a great feeling this is probably my last home game and tomorrow will be my last game as a Cav.”
