Source: Jamison to Chase Title with Lakers
Antawn Jamison is joining up with Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash to chase a championship with the Los Angeles Lakers.
Jamison will sign a one-year deal for the veteran’s minimum with the Lakers, a league source told ESPNLosAngeles.com’s Dave McMenamin.
The 36-year-old forward will bolster the Lakers’ bench with scoring and veteran leadership while pursuing the first championship ring in a career largely spent as the best player on bad teams.
He won’t have that problem with the Lakers, who will have Bryant and newcomer Nash in their backcourt flanked by two elite 7-footers — although their identities will depend on whether their apparent efforts to land Dwight Howard are successful. Jamison also will be reunited with coach Mike Brown, who was in charge of the Cavaliers when Jamison was traded to Cleveland during the 2009-10 season.
