Jamison averaged 17.2 points per game with the Cleveland Cavaliers last season.
In baseball, the Dodgers salvaged the final game of a three-game set against the Phillies, but needed extra innings to do it.
Matt Kemp hit his first home run since coming off the disabled list to give the Dodgers a 5-3 win over the Phillies and snap a four-game losing streak.
Kemp hit a two-run homer, his 13th of the season, in the 12th inning.
But the Dodgers couldn’t make up any ground against the San Francisco Giants. They beat the Braves, 9-4, in 11 innings and have a three-game lead over the Dodgers in the National League West standings.
