Antawn Jamison To Meet With Clippers

August 2 2013 at 9:35pm CST By Chuck Myron

Free agent Antawn Jamison will have dinner Saturday night with Doc Rivers, who doubles as Clippers coach and head of the team's basketball ops, tweets Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports. The Clippers are one of four teams reportedly interested in the 37-year-old. The Bobcats, Grizzlies and Bulls are the others.

The Clippers can only offer the minimum salary, and adding Jamison would put the club over the tax line, even if it waives the non-guaranteed contract of Maalik Wayns. Still, the Clips have been linked to Jamison on numerous occasions this summer, with one report indicating that the team would sign either Jamison or Lamar Odom.

Jamison would be a curious fit for the Clippers, since it would leave the team without a true center to back up DeAndre Jordan. Byron Mullens is a 7-footer, but he, like Jamison, relies on an outside game. The 6'8" Jamison shifted between small forward and power forward this past season for the Lakers, averaging 9.4 points in 21.5 minutes per game, both career lows.
