8:21pm: The Clippers are closing in on a deal with free agent Antawn Jamison, according to Ramona Shelburne of (via Twitter).  The Clippers have been in talks with the veteran for much of the summer.  Terms of the deal are not yet known but the Clips can only offer Jamison the veteran's minimum.

Jamison, 37, spent last season with the Lakers, averaging 9.4 PPG and 4.8 RPG in 21.5 minutes per contest.  It was a noticeable step back from the forward's previous career averages of 19.5 PPG and 7.9 RPG in 36.3 minutes per game.  Jamison's new club might not give him the opportunity to shine as he has in years past, but it will save him a bit in moving fees.
