Antawn Jamison

32 posts in this topic

I'm a UNC fan, so I'm very capable of what Jamison can and can't do...

Also, not to be a dick but Mike D'Antoni's teams have never been known for this thing called defense.

Jamison has never been anything more than an average defensive player at his very best, but he's awful now. It isn't just D'Antoni either lol. He's been awful on defense by every measure available for several years now. He would give a nice spark on offense though.

Yeah, that's what I was getting at, if you sign Jamison; it's for offensive purposes, he leaves a lot to be desired on the defensive end.

We gave him an offer to come last year. He chose to go to that shipwreck in LA instead. Fug him, and let him go finish his career in Was. We need to let the young guns develop anyway, and he'd take time away.

Yup he had his chance.  We don't need bigs now so, good luck elsewhere.

Marc J. Spears: Clippers and Bobcats amongst teams that have recently expressed interest in Antawn Jamison, a source said. Twitter @SpearsNBAYahoo

 

It looks like we still might have interest in Jamison.

wow. jamison is not only a hard working high character guy, but he is actually from charlotte. cant imgaine how it would be a bad sign. just because he did last year what any player his age with some kind of contributions left in him does (sign with a likely contender), i dont think we should punish him and not welcome him back. at his age, if anyone says they would have chosen the bobcats over the lakers last year after the state of awfulness the bobcats were going through, they are lying, lol

Marc Spears is reporting that teams have worries about Antawn Jamison's surgically repaired wrist.

 

Jamison is quoted as saying that those are "unnecessary worries."

 

Perhaps we could convince Antawn to come to Charlotte on a deal good for both sides. Something like an incentive layered contract based on the number of games he plays. 

 

It certainly wouldn't hurt to sign him to a two year deal if he takes a pay-cut to return home.

 

It wouldn't hurt to be three deep at the power forward position, plus Jamison could bring Cody under his wing and help him get accustomed to the NBA game.

I'm mixed.  I'd like to see our young guys get the bulk of the minutes, honestly, but we went out and signed Jefferson and hopefully we are bringing Henderson back, so we obviously want to win, and having some good depth helps you do that.   But if everyone else passes on him because of injury concerns I feel we should have those same concerns.  Of course if the it's a great deal then I'm all for it.
