Two-time NBA All-Star forward Antawn Jamison is rumored to be nearing a free-agent deal with the Los Angeles Clippers.

A source told ESPN Los Angeles' Ramona Shelburne on Sunday that the Clippers were "closing in" on acquiring the 37-year-old veteran. Shelburne notes that Jamison has been adamant about playing for a championship contender as he enters the twilight of his career, which has lasted 15 years to date.

Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times later reported that the two sides came to agreement on a contract.
