Per Ramona's article:

Veteran forward Antawn Jamison and Clippers coach and senior vice president of player personnel Doc Rivers had dinner Saturday night in Los Angeles, a source with knowledge of the situation told

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.

Jamison, 37, has averaged 18.8 points and 7.6 rebounds over his 15 year NBA career but has been unabashed in his desire to play for a championship contender in the final years of his career.

Chicago and Memphis have also expressed interest in Jamison, the source said.
