No offer was made, but there are plans for the Clippers and Jamison's representatives to speak soon. The Clippers have been interested in Jamison, who played for the Lakers last season, for some time but this was the first meeting between the two sides. He had surgery on his wrist after the season, but is now recovered and back to performing basketball-related activities. ESPN.com

Free agent forward Ivan Johnson has been engaged in preliminary conversations with six NBA teams, a source close to Johnson relayed to CSNNW.com. As reported by ESPNNewYork.com, the Knicks are one of the interested parties. However, the same source who spoke on the condition of anonymity said there isn't anything serious with these discussions at this point with Greg Oden, Lamar Odom and Antawn Jamison still out on the market. The source added that there is no front-runner for the services of Johnson. CSNNW.com

The 29-year-old Johnson, who became an NBA player in 2011 and has played for the Hawks, was initially campaigning for a mini mid-level contract. But with remaining attractive free agents like DeJuan Blair and Antawn Jamison in the veteran's minimum financial ballpark -- Blair signed with the Mavericks for that amount -- the free-agent market is quickly changing. "I think the mini mid-level will be tough to get at this time," the source said. ESPN.com

The Bulls, Clippers, Grizzlies and Bobcats have all showed interest in the 37-year-old free agent, who believes he has a couple more years left of competing at a high level. "I think last year, getting the opportunity to play for the Lakers and their organization, I really jumped into it," Jamison said. "Didn't really view my options, but this year I really want to make sure I'm going to the right situation, where I have a good rapport with the coaching staff and also with management I'm able to communicate and get an understanding of what they want from me.

Antawn Jamison had the worst statistical season of his NBA career as he struggled to find playing time and dealt with an injured right wrist. He played through the second half of last year with the wrist injury and needed surgery this offseason. The cast on Jamison's right hand came off on July 2. He was back on the basketball court only days afterward. "I couldn't do anything for eight weeks, so as soon as I able to get the go-ahead to do basketball activities I was right back at it," Jamison said. "Surprisingly, I was about to do the things that I've been doing normally quickly." Sporting News

While chasing a ring in a different city is still an option for Jamison, the Charlotte Bobcats seem to be the frontrunner to sign him at this point. Jamison grew up in Charlotte and is interested in returning home and living year-round with his four children. He flirted with the Bobcats last offseason for this very reason, and may decide to join them now. While he would most likely have to endure a losing season, he’d get to play a large role and be one of the team’s veteran leaders alongside Al Jefferson and Ben Gordon as well as his former teammates Ramon Sessions and Brendan Haywood.
