Veteran forward who was thought to be a valued addition for a team two years ago that underwhelmed and now is considered a value mid-range scorer?

Sounds like a Laker!

Yahoo Sports reports that the Lakers have agreed to a one-year deal with veteran forward Antawn Jamison. This has been talked about for a while, and we first broke it down here a few days ago.

The Lakers need anyone in the frontcourt with abilities that extend past "standing" and "watching guys run by them" and Jamison was surprisingly game last season. He's able to rebound and hit the mid-range shot and should work well with Steve Nash off the bench, providing a decent sub for Pau Gasol.

The Charlotte Observer first reported that Jamison had decided on the Lakers. Yahoo Sports also reports that Jamison had settled on Charlotte before his agent changed his mind.
