I agree with JSM. Those are the backup positions I like: Blake/?/Clark/Jamison/Hill.

Both of our SF's (starting and back-up) need to be two-way players who can space the floor with consistent three point shooting. I don't want to bring back Clark if he's gonna be our back-up SF (unless he's a third stringer). I can definitely see Clark and Jamison holding down the PF spot though.

Yes, he is. One thing he said during his exit interview was he is planning on getting stronger to guard some of the more physical guys down low. That would be a good things for him. We had Metta guard a lot of those guys because Metta is stronger physically. If Earl improves his strength & start guarding those guys effectively; he can be even more of a valuable piece going forward.

I'm not sold on Clark at the backup 3. He's not quite fast or quick enough on his feet. He'd be better giving 4s a hard time with his mobility at 6'10".

I'd rather go with a true swing at the backup 3 who can run the floor well and defend.

^^ I completely agree. I don't like Clark at the 3 at all. I do really like him at the 4. He's not quick enough for an SF.

Mark Medina of the LA Daily News wrote:After he took a paycut to play one season for the veteran’s minimum in hopes of winning his first NBA championship, it’s unlikely Antawn Jamison will return to the Lakers.

He will become an unrestricted free agent at 9:00 p.m. tonight with a much different mindset than he had last season. Although he hasn’t held regrets playing with the Lakers for $1.4 million as opposed to the Charlotte Bobcats in what would’ve been a three-year, $10 million deal, Jamison isn’t intent on duplicating that process for various reasons.

The 15-year NBA veteran hopes to play somewhere near his Charlotte residence so he can spend more time with his four children, including Alexis (12), Kathryn 7, Antawn Jr. (6) and Rucker (3). Jamison will likely command more money on the open market considering he made $15.1 million in the 2011-12 season with the Cleveland Cavaliers. He tired of the endless in-fighting among the Lakers locker room. And partly stemmed from sitting out for six consecutive games, Jamison didn’t have the best relationship with Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni. Jamison had also skipped his initial exit meeting, though he attended at a later time.

Jamison averaged 9.4 points on 46.4 percent shooting and 4.7 rebounds in 76 appearances, a severe dropoff in his career-average 19.5 points per game. He also had offseason surgery to treat a torn ligament in his right wrist, an injury he nursed for the last month of the season.

Endless in-fighting in the Locker room..... Hadn't heard it was systemic before. Partially explaines what we saw on the floor.

I've been told that Jamison likely not returning is more on his end than any Lakers disinterest.

Jamison wants to live closer to kids in Charlotte, N.C. Not interested in playing for vet. minimum again either.

Wants money and to be close to NC...Atlanta?

I didn't really expect or want Jamison back, but it still sucks to read that a factor in players leaving is their "relationship" with 'Antoni.

I can't blame Jamison for not wanting to return. A player like him who's near the end of a career should try to get the most $$$ possible... Last yr obviously didn't work out like we all hoped, and the coming year is no guarantee either with possibility of Dwight leaving, a recovering Kobe, an older Nash and possibly trading Pau sometime during the season. Especially ifAntawn didn't jive with MDA, more the reason he should bail and go where is best for him and his family.

He already did LA a favor by taking low salary last yr, no reason to expect him to do it again. I'm shocked that front office is still siding with MDA when general consensus is that MDA is not a good fit...

It's too bad things didn't work out here in LA, now I just hope he doesn't sign with the Heat. Go to the Wizards Antawn! :man10:

dont know why you laughing at the Wiz...while they didn't make the playoffs, after the ASB they ranked 5th in defense....something our team couldn't even sniff being at and they beat us at home.

I wasn't laughing at the Wiz but rather me not wanting him going to the Heat. Of course I know the Wizards were a much better team post ASB especially with the emergence of Wall. With the addition of Porter and depending on what they do this offseason they can be a mid level seed in the East imo.

Michael Lee of the Washington Post wrote:Wall has lobbied for the team to acquire a pick-and-pop power forward to spread the floor on offense and an interesting name has emerged as a possibility: former Wizard Antawn Jamison. Jamison is a free agent after a disappointing season with the Los Angeles Lakers and a source close to the 37-year-old forward said that Jamison would be open to a return.

Jamison played with the Wizards from 2004-10 and was traded to Cleveland when the team began its rebuilding efforts. The interest in bringing back Jamison is mutual, according to a league source, but the team isn’t in a rush to make a deal with other position needs taking precedence.

I mostly associate Jamison with the Wizards, then the Warriors, going back to D.C. would make sense I think.

Even then, now that Dwight's gone our chances of winning a title just plummeted and the whole reason Jamison came here was to win a ring.
