Antawn Jamison is returning to the Wizards, this time as the director of pro personnel, the team announced on Wednesday.
The two-time All-Star spent six of his 17 years in the NBA in Washington, where he averaged 20.8 points and 8.9 rebounds a game. He's spent the past two years as a scout for the Los Angeles Lakers.
Jamison is just the latest addition to a Wizards front office that has been revamped since longtime general manager Ernie Grunfeld was fired after the 2018-19 season.
“We are absolutely thrilled to bring Antawn back to the Wizards organization,” said Wizards General Manager Tommy Sheppard in a statement. “In addition to his strong feel for the game and basketball knowledge, he has always been a true professional and a dedicated worker. We look forward to him bringing those qualities to our front office.”
The Wizards also announced they hired Laron Profit and John Carideo as pro scouts.
