Antawn Jamison will stay in Los Angeles, signing a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Clippers.

The contract, according to the Los Angeles Times, is for a veteran’s minimum $1.4 million. Jamison, 37, spent last season with the Lakers, signing a one-year deal in the belief that they’d be in contention for a title. They weren’t and he ended up publicly criticizing Coach Mike D’Antoni. Perhaps he’ll be happier with a team that includes Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, J.J. Redick, Jared Dudley and first-round draft pick Reggie Bullock.

“Ready to come and help out as much as possible,” Jamison said (via the Times), “and hopefully I’m the piece that can take us to the top.”

Jamison is a 15-year veteran with career averages of 18.8 points, 7.6 rebounds and 1.7 assists.
