@BA_Turner: Clippers, forward Antawn Jamison both showing interest. No deal yet, however. Jamison, of course, played for Lakers last season.

Jamison still has game. In 21.5 min/gm last season, he averaged 9.4 pts (46.4 FG%, 36.1 3PT%, and 69.1 FT%) and 4.8 REBS. So he's definitely a capable shooter and floor spacer. I don't know where how his defense is, since I didn't watch much of him last season. My main concern is that he's 37... yeesh!!!

Nooooo not Jamison. While his shooting did bounce back last year after shooting 40% his last year in Clv, my Laker-fan friend just said "have fun watching the worst d in the league." There have to be better options out there.

Worst D in the league? Could that have anything to do with having the worst D coach in the NBA? Probably.

Lets see what Doc does for Jamison.

What can he really do? Especially for the future. He's 37 and he's no Duncan or Garnett. Tired of seeing these old dudes trying to play, but they can't keep up or stay healthy. Rather have odom

Nobody is Duncan or Garnett, but Jamison will get paid about 1/10th of what they get.

We only have the vet mins left, I really doubt we will find a good young gun big man for that price.

I would pick Odom over Jamison. Odom is younger, a better rebounder and all around player. He would be a better fit in the second unit. Crawford, Collison and Barnes are capable of putting points up on the board and would prefer someone that plays D and rebounds.

Jamison would be a good stretch power forward because he can hit the 3. Also, with Hollins back next year, we got a nice little UCLA core group that can do some damage together (Collison, Barnes, Hollins). Too bad we couldn't swing Shabaaz Muhammad during the draft.

Before going to the Lakers he was known as a terrible defensive player. His defensive rating prior to last season was giving up 109 points per 100 possessions. And I believe he spent lots of time on Mike Brown's teams, known as a good defensive coach. Doc's not going to be able to fix an old, undersized back up power forward. I think his outside shooting combined with his D make him a net zero. While I don't think Odom is the answer either, I'd rather have his D, rebounds, and passing than Jamison's career 34% 3pt fg.

The more I read about Jamison's lack of defense, the more I realize he shouldn't be picked up by the Clips.

Someone on twitter made a salient point that our first big off the bench should be a good-to-decent defensive player. When we already have Collison & Crawford to generate the offense, we're going to need someone to protect the rim. Signing Hollins, though a nice insurance plan, is not the answer as our primary backup big. I'm still holding out hope we can land Jermaine O'Neal.

Not crazy about the Jamison rumor,like many of you I rather have a defensive big.We got a lot of different scoring options already.I would be ok with picking up Jamison but only if we are able to sign a defensive big who could play the 4 and 5.

I'd be okay with signing Jamison only if we get Blair. I love LO, but he wants money, and money that we don't have. If the lakers offer him enough cash, without a doubt he goes back to the team he won his first ring with. His days are numbered, he's trying to rack up as much money before he gets any older.

Ya, what would Jamison even play with the Clippers? You got Dudley, Barnes, and Bullock......so he ain't playin' the 3. He's not running the 2nd team 4/5 at 37 years old either. Hang it up...

Just thought about that. Although he plays the 4, it's such a demanding position physically. And we're loaded at the 2 and 3 spot. Don't think it's smart to have him play the 4 at his age, he's undersized as well a little.

I don't know why our FO is so fascinated with a stretch 4.I like the idea of spreading the floor out for Blake but I would honestly rather have Barnes play the 4 than sign Jamison.Jamison is slow,a bad defender,a streaky shooter,and a bad rebounder.I honestly would rather sign Odom.Odom offense was not consistent at all last year but he was probably our best rebounder and he played solid defense.

New user here. First off, I think Jamison would be a great signing. He can stretch the floor and give Paul and Griffin room to operate. Also he can close out games with Griffin if Doc is worried about Jordan's poor free throw shooting. Even if we got Jamison, I think the FO would push to get one more big off the bench for the vets min. to help protect the rI'm

He has always been a 4 and will play the same for us if he signs here. Would be a great signing as he can nail the 3 and is a good rebounder. Now just bring in a jermaine oneal or someone like that and we are set. Although a 2nd unit of the following would already be awesome: Pg: collison Sg: crawford Sf: Barnes Pf: Jamison C: hollins

3rd unit:

Willie green Reggie bullock Odom Turiaf?

Sounds solid to me

Jamison sucks.

Odom was good on defense because he made his rotations, hedged a recovered well, and he played solid man to man defense when he wasn't overmatched. Also rebounded well defensively.

Plus, he doesn't get trapped easily........and he doesn't need to waste time with an outlet off the defensive glass........since he can handle the ball. Huge difference between LO and most other backup big options. I don't see why people wouldn't want him back...

Totally agree: Odom>>>>>Jamison, especially for what our second unit needs. Dejuan Blair would be great if we can't get Odom since he's a bruiser who can play the 4 or 5 and can pass the ball well.

The only thing I haven't understood about our offseason is that we are interested in kmart but no mention of brand. Brand brings more to the table than any other big available with the possible exception of dalembert. If we should be targeting anybody it should be brand or dalembert, followed by oneal, then maybe smith and odom and jamison should only be a package if we sign an oneal or a center that can pick up the defensive slack a bit.

Don't know if anyone has brought him up already but if we do sign Jamison than I would like to bring in Lou Amundson for the vet min.He is a lot like Reggie Evans and would be a good get so that we have someone to make up for Jamison's bad defense and rebounding.Than send the Reggie Evans TPE to the Suns in a sign and trade for Jermaine O'neal.The Evans TPE is $1.7 Mill which is a little more than vet min.

I REALLY hope we don't sign Jamison unless we also have Odom, O'neal, or best case scenario Dalembert on board for defense and rebounding. Hollins is not able to completely anchor the post without another defender alongside him. Jamison's absolutely pathetic uncommitted defense has been his calling card his whole career. He doesn't even try. Seriously. Do we really want two 100% offensive players on the floor at the same time (Crawford)? So much for last years defensively locked in bench...

It's a shame we aren't looking at Brand, but why no mention of O'neal. I was really hoping that with Gentry on staff that he would be a shoe in. I'm a huge DJ supporter, but we need a solid back up behind him for cases of racking up fouls and his free throws. If it is an early foul issue in a game Hollins will not be the solution because he will follow up with the same result in half the time (most likely).

I'd prefer Lamar over Jamison, but if we were to add an Oneal I believe a Jamison could be a solid add. If we don't add an Oneal (or similar player, dalembert, brand, smith) we need to stay away from Jamison and get Lamar, because he can at least play the 3-5 positions on both ends of the floor. He can also bring the ball across the court. I would rather give a shot to Austin Daye than Jamison by himself.

I will go ahead and say no to Turiaf, if we can't get Oneal I'd still rather bring in guys like Cole Aldrich, or Haddadi, or Stiemsma over this guy. Nothing personal but I feel all these guys would bring a little bit more than Turiaf. We already have a cheerleader big in Hollins, no need for two of them.

As if what I feel matters to the FO, but I'm slowly coming around to the Jamison idea. While I hate his defense and shooting percentages, adding another defensive minded 4/5 backup could make it work. If the match up is ok, having Jamison as the stretch 4 could be good (he's also a good cutter). If he'd have to go up against someone with any offensive skills at all, Doc could play Hollins and Turiaff (for example) instead. I'm sure the FO is aware of his defensive ineptitude and are taking it into consideration. I wonder what their plan is with Brandon Davies and whether they think he's gonna earn some time since they signed him to a partially guaranteed contract. He's a big guy, but defense isn't supposed to be his strength either.

Clips needs some toughness in the paint, that's why I'm not big on signing Jamison. Unless the team is solely depending on BG and DJ to improve and become more of a force down low, a team like Memphis might continue to give the Clips trouble. 2 seasons ago, Kmart and Reggie did a pretty good job defending the paint against Memphis and made a difference in that series.

I'm not so sure about Jamison. Let's not forget that vs Memphis, one big difference last season vs the year before was not having Kenyon Martin and Reggie Evans. So if DJ struggles with FT again, who are you going to put out there next to BG in the 4th to guard Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol? Jamison?

I'd try to get Kenyon Martin back if possible, or otherwise let by-gones be by-gones and do some sort of S&T for Elton Brand (or Reggie Evans)?

I wouldn't mind bringing in Steemer as Agent0 mentioned. My only gripe with him is that he thinks he has Kobe's mid-range game, and if he's at all open he will chuck it. But he's a f***** goon who can block a few shots and defend well enough, decent Free Throw shooter too. Our options our limited with the minimum, I'd pick him up. He's better than Hollins/Turiaf IMO.

I don't want Jamison, but wtf am I gonna do about it? :p I'd rather get Anthony Tolliver if we're looking for a stretch-4.

yeah, I only see Jamison working out if we get a O'neal, Aldrich, or similar big body defensive minded player. I'm not necessarily down on the idea but agree that if we could get Brand we should let the past go. Brand could be the player that gets us over the edge in my opinion.

Hmmm, I would go with O'Neal and Blair. Odom isn't an option anymore, you know he looking for more cash. Let's hope O'Neal is an option. And if we do sign Jamison, the dude better be in NBA shape if he's 37 years old

Trust me, if I thought we could get a big brusing Reggie Evans style rebounder for cheap in the free agency, I'd go for it. But otherwise I'm fine with Jamison. And who knows, he might be inspired to play harder under Doc. I know there was a time this guy averaged double digit rebounds.

I think he could definitely play a stretch four. He is just as big as jamison and probably stronger and plays better defense. He would have to adjust but id rather get him than jamison. If we pick up oneal we have the toughest team out there, with him mwp oneal and barnes we wouldn't see any cheap shots.

Some of us want a 6'7 pf tweener who doesn't play defense but can stretch the floor. Just change his position to stretch 4. I know easier said than done but i could of sworn i saw him play the 4 a few times with the lakers before.

Hahaha this is great. I was totally impartial to the idea of Jameson until reading this and now I really don't want him. But, always having one player on the team that I can't stand, I assume he will fill the roll. Hopefully his blackdeath doesn't rub off on us
