The Clippers had been considering signing Lamar Odom. but have moved in recent days toward Jamison, fueling more speculation about Odom's reported drug problem. Jamison provides much of the same as Odom, after averaging nine points and five rebounds last year for the Lakers. Jamison had been pursued by several teams including the Grizzlies and Bobcats in recent weeks.
Jamison gives the Clippers an emergency big to throw out there who can score and rebound a little bit, though his defense has struggled as he's gotten older.
