ESPN LA and Yahoo report that the Clippers have signed veteran free agent forward Antawn Jamison. It's reportedly a one-year deal and Jamson confirmed the deal to ESPN LA. 

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.
