The Clippers continued to build a deep and talented roster this week by signing veteran forward Antwan Jamison.
After playing for the Lakers last season Jamison became a free agent. He is expected to take Lamar Odom’s place in the Clippers’ plans as a reserve on the front line.
Jamison will be in his 15th NBA season. He signed a one-year contract for $1.4 million, a low number by NBA standards. That’s the same amount he played for last season.
Jamison had differences with Lakers’ coach Mike D’Antoni over playing time.
“Hopefully I can be the piece that takes us to the top,” said Jamison, recognizing the highly regarded Clippers faltered in last season’s playoffs, losing in the first round to Memphis.
