Antawn Jamison chooses Lakers over Bobcats

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.

Solid pickup. He can be the stretch 4 to play next to Pau when he moves to center. Now just pick up a wing shooter.

The dude scored 17PPG last year, he'll be a great piece off the bench.

@Lakerholicz: RT @mcten: Just talked to Mitch about Antawn Jamison. He acknowledged interest but said: "We're not about to do anything. I would know."

Um...if you're the Bobcats, why would you ever pursue Jamison over a younger guy like Carl Landry????

Awesome. The bench is looking to be much improved. Should look at signing Jodie Meeks for the backup SG.

Jamison is in Italy and Mitch wants to talk with him when he gets back. No signing as of yet. Thread title changed, as it was on the main board.
