DALLAS -- For his play in his first season coming off the bench, Mavericks forward Antawn Jamison will earn the NBA's Sixth Man Award, league sources told ESPN.com's Marc Stein on Wednesday.

The official announcement will come on Friday.

Until this season, Jamison had been a starter every season for the Warriors. Jamison, though, accepted a new role with his new team this season, and has flourished, averaging 14.8 points per game.

Al Harrington of the Pacers, Desmond Mason of the Bucks and Manu Ginobili of the Spurs were also considered serious contenders for the Sixth Man Award.

Jamison had a big game in the Mavs' playoff opener, scoring 18 points in 20 minutes, but struggled in Game 2 due to tight hamstrings. The Mavs are down 2-0 to the Kings.
