Jamison, who was selected with the fourth overall pick by the Toronto Raptors in the 1998 draft but was quickly traded to the Golden State Warriors, has appeared in 985 career games with 858 starts for the Warriors, Mavericks, Wizards and Cavaliers.

He has averaged 19.5 points, 7.9 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game while shooting 45.1 percent from the floor and 34.6 percent from three-point range.

Jamison also joins Dirk Nowitzki as the only players to accumulate at least 19,000 points, 7,000 rebounds and 1,000 three-pointers made in a career.
