Source: Antawn Jamison to the Lakers

Apr 8, 2012; Newark, NJ, USA; Cleveland Cavaliers forward Antawn Jamison (4) argues a referee

A source told Charlotte Bobcats beat writer Rick Bonnell that veteran power forward Antawn Jamison will sign with the Lakers. Legion Sports (@MySportsLegion) also tweeted a source said Jamison has reached a deal with LA.

The Bobcats were banking on Jamison choosing to play at home rather than with a title contender and they didn’t put in a serious bid for Elton Brand (winning bid just over $2 million), and either didn’t want to take on Luis Scola for three years or didn’t want to pay him as much as the Phoenix Suns. Phoenix won Scola with a bid of $13.5  million over three years (according to SI.com)

I’ve seen nothing credible to suggest the Bobcats are in a strong pursuit for the only reasonable free agent power forward left on the market, Carl Landry.

Roberto Gato will have more on this story as it develops/becomes official, but right now it looks like some combination of Bismack Biyombo (would rather have him as a backup center), Byron Mullens (would rather have him as a stretch big off the bench) and (God forbid) Tyrus thomas will start at power forward for the Bobcats next season.
