Antawn Jamison had hinted earlier this season that it might be his last year with the Cavaliers, but following Wednesday's game, the season's last in Cleveland, he was more equivocal in discussing his future.
"It’s time for me to move on," Jamison told reporters, including Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal. "I don’t know what the future holds, but I definitely have a great feeling this is probably my last home game and [Thursday] will be my last game as a Cav."
Jamison, 35, is in the final season of a four-year contract, earning $15MM+ in 2011/12. While he won't land that sort of annual salary on the open market this summer, his continued production will make him an attractive target for teams in need of frontcourt help. In 64 games this season, the forward has averaged 17.3 points and 6.3 rebounds in 33.2 minutes per contest.
Clearing Jamison and other free agents off the books will leave Cleveland with just over $28MM+ in guaranteed money committed to its 2012/13 payroll.
Ryan Raroque of Hoops Rumors examined Jamison's free agent stock earlier this month.
