The Los Angeles Lakers plan to hire two-time NBA All-Star Antawn Jamison in a scouting role, league sources told The Vertical.

Jamison, 41, will work in the scouting department under Lakers president of basketball operations Magic Johnson, general manager Rob Pelinka and assistant general manager Jesse Buss, league sources said.

Jamison was the No. 4 overall pick in the 1998 NBA draft and had a stellar pro career spanning 16 seasons. He averaged 18.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.6 assists and was an established stretch four with versatility that fit in the modern game. Jamison was an All-Star in 2005 and 2008, and the Sixth Man of the Year in 2004.

Jamison played for the Lakers in the 2012-13 season. He has served as a TV analyst for the Lakers since 2014 after finishing his career with the Los Angeles Clippers.
