Report: Lakers could sign Antawn Jamison and Jermaine O'Neal

Tuesday July 17th, 2012

The Lakers may not be done getting older. A week after landing 38-year-old point guard Steve Nash, the Los Angeles Lakers are close to agreeing terms with power forward Antawn Jamison and center Jermaine O'Neal, according to a tweet from Yahoo! Sports' Marc J. Spears.

The moves will add veteran depth to a frontcourt that includes Pau Gasol, Andrew Bynum, and playoff standout Jordan Hill. However, some of those players may be gone soon to make way for Dwight Howard, who the Lakers may trade for according to reports earlier today.

Jamison, 36, has played the last two and a half seasons with the Cleveland Cavaliers. After appearing in the playoffs with the Dallas Mavericks and Washington Wizards for six out of seven years between 2003 and 2010, Jamison has been absent from the postseason since. He averaged 17.2 points and 6.3 rebounds a game last season while shooting 40.3% from the field.
