Cavaliers Free Agency 2012: Antawn Jamison Possibly Heading To Lakers, According To Report

Cleveland Cavaliers unrestricted free agent Antawn Jamison will sign with the Los Angeles Lakers, according to The Charlotte Observer.

The deal, however, doesn't appear to be cinched just yet. After that report came out,'s Dave McMenamin tweeted:

Reports surfaced last week that the Cavaliers were considering a sign-and-trade with Jamison that would have sent the 14-year veteran to the Nets. The Bobcats were also interested.

The Lakers don't have a lot of money to throw at Jamison, but the chance of a ring could be enough of a draw.

Jamison, 36, averaged 17.2 points and 6.3 rebounds for Cleveland last season.
