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, ESPN.com's Dave McMenamin tweeted:
Just talked to Mitch Kupchak about Antawn Jamison. He acknowledged interest but said: "We're not about to do anything. I would know."— Dave McMenamin (@mcten) July 17, 2012
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.
