Wizards Sign Jamison To Extension
Washington Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld announced today that the team has signed forward Antawn Jamison to a contract extension. Per team policy, terms of the contract were not released.
The deal is reportedly in the four-year, $50 million range.
?Signing Antawn to a contract extension was a top priority for us this summer,? said Grunfeld. ?He has been a leader for us both on and off the court over the last four seasons, and we?re proud to reward his efforts by bringing him back.?
Jamison led the Wizards in scoring (21.4 ppg) and rebounding (a career-high 10.2 rpg) last season to earn his second career All-Star appearance. He was one of only five players in the NBA to average at least 20 points and 10 rebounds and posted a career-high 44 double-doubles.
