Lakers forward Antawn Jamison just underwent surgery Tuesday morning to repair ligament damage in his right wrist, an injury he had nursed for the last month of the season.
Not that this affects much of the Lakers’ future. He’s not expected to resign with the Lakers for various reasons. Jamison isn’t interested in accepting the veteran’s minimum ($1.35 million), a drastic cut the 15-year veteran conceded last year for the sakes of winning an NBA title. Jamison may want to stay closer to his children in Charlotte, N.C. And he had an up-and-down relationship with coach Mike D’Antoni over his role.
Jamison also skipped his exit interview with the team on Monday, according to a team spokesman, despite the Lakers’ efforts to contact him. He originally was scheduled to meet with the team on Tuesday, but his the timing of his meeting changed for unknown reasons.
Jamison averaged 9.4 points on 46.4 percent shooting and 4.7 rebounds in 76 appearances.
