Cavaliers and Nets Reportedly Discussing Antawn Jamison Sign-and-Trade
Sources confirm Cavs & Nets have talked sign-and-trade involving Antawn Jamison. Story: tinyurl.com/c79wr46— Sam Amico (@SamAmicoFSO) 11 Jul 12
Per the report, it is not known what the Cavaliers would receive in return for Jamison's services. He was good for averages of 17.2 points and 6.3 rebounds in 33 minutes a game last season.
The Cavaliers were the party responsible for a potential Howard deal falling through, so we'll have to see if this prospective sign-and-trade winds up working out.
GM Billy King and the Nets have made moves this offseason to lock up Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, Gerald Wallace and, most recently, Brook Lopez, so it's no surprise that the team has reached out for another forward to complete its starting five.
Jamison certainly isn't the player he used to be, but the former No. 4 overall draft pick proved to be a viable option for Cleveland last season, despite shooting a career-worst 40 percent from the field.
Injuries were an issue for Jamison in past seasons, but the 14-year veteran missed just one game in 2011-2012.
One downside about Jamison is that he needs the ball in his hands to be effective. He attempted at least 15 field goals per game in all but three of his NBA seasons. The UNC alum isn't likely to get that many attempts with Williams, Johnson, Wallace and Lopez all on the floor at the same time.
Stay tuned to see how Cleveland comes out in the deal as this situation unfolds.
