The Los Angeles Lakers and free agent forward Antawn Jamison agreed to a one-year deal on Wednesday, Yahoo! Sports reports.

Jamison was sought after by the Charlotte Bobcats, the Brooklyn Nets and Golden State Warriors, and will make the league minimum next season.

A 15-year veteran playing for his fifth team, Jamison averaged 17.2 points and 6.3 rebounds per game last season for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Lakers are reportedly still in the market for Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard or possibly free agent Jermaine O'Neal.
