Jamison was good role player off the bench last season for the Lakers, averaging 9.4 points and 4.8 rebounds per game. While he is a defensive liability, his unorthodox way of scoring provided a nice boost for the Lakers last season.
Jamison’s deal with the Clippers will be for one year at the veteran’s minimum, $1.4 million.
The Clippers already have an improved roster from last season, but the addition of Jamison will only provide more depth, especially if they encounter any injuries.
Jamison was a class act during his time with the Lakers, but at age 37, he is looking to play for a contender for the opportunity at an NBA title.
