Free-agent forward Antawn Jamison will sign with the Los Angeles Lakers, The Charlotte Observer's Rick Bonnell reported Monday night. Jamison had drawn interest from the Charlotte Bobcats, the Brooklyn Nets and the Golden State Warriors. From Bonnell's report:

The Bobcats were recruiting free agent Jamison as both a power forward and a veteran mentor to a young team. Jamison was torn between the chance to play for his hometown team or to pursue a championship with what figures to be his last NBA contract.

The Lakers targeted Jamison in their search for backup big men, along with Elton Brand and Jermaine O'Neal, ESPN Los Angeles reported on Friday.

The 36-year-old Jamison scored 17.2 points per game and had 6.3 rebounds per game last season while playing with the Cleveland Cavaliers. But he also hit a career-low 40.3 percent of his shots from the field.

Jamison becomes another piece to the Lakers' veteran puzzle. They have also added point guard Steve Nash this offseason.
