Report: Lakers to sign Antawn Jamison

Here’s the story from the Charlotte Observer:

“LAS VEGAS – The Charlotte Bobcats have lost out on free agent Antawn Jamison, who will sign with the Los Angeles Lakers, the Observer has learned.

“The Bobcats were recruiting free agent Jamison as both a power forward and a veteran mentor to a young team. Jamison was torn between the chance to play for his hometown team or to pursue a championship with what figures to be his last NBA contract.

“The Brooklyn Nets were also in the running for the two-time All-Star who played for
Providence High before starring at North Carolina.

“The Bobcats are still pursuing Kris Humphries and Carl Landry in free-agency, to address the power forward position.”
