Antawn Jamison: I won’t re-sign with Cleveland Cavaliers

"I understand the importance of Tristan (Thompson) and these younger guys getting the opportunity to play," he continued. "I’ve taught them so much and it’s been fun teaching them, but it’s time for me to move on as well. I don’t know what the future holds, I don’t know what opportunity might present itself, but I definitely have a great feeling this is probably my last home game and tomorrow will be my last game as a Cav."

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Antawn Jamison is done mentoring a bad Cleveland Cavaliers squad and wants to win -even if it costs him millions of dollars.

The veteran forward will become a free agent in July when his $15 million per year contract expires. Expect Jamison to take the Mini Mid Level Exception and join a contender as a second-unit scorer.

Of course, there are the usual concerns when an established player takes a lesser role. In fact, some can’t do it (think Allen Iverson, Steve ’Finer Things’ Francis, and Stephon Marbury).

But Jamison is a different breed. He’s always been a team-first guy, volunteering to come off the bench during his prime with the Dallas Mavericks and conceding the spotlight to a brash Gilbert Arenas with the Washington Wizards.

So Jamison told the inquiring media before the Cavaliers’ final home game that he was likely moving on. The future, however, looks good with Kyrie Irving and Tristan Thompson.

Video: Steve Francis’ ‘Finer Things’ won’t win Grammy

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: The NBA’s version of ‘Where’s Waldo’ has resurfaced as, you guessed it, a rapper.

Steve Francis disappeared from the public eye after getting released by a Chinese club. The only news was that the one-time Franchise had started a record label and ran into, well, trouble with an employee.

Well, Francis is back. Unfortunately. He’s another baller trying his luck as a lyricist and the early returns aren’t good -even by professional athlete standards.
