    Default Kaman Might be Available?

    The centerpiece it does involve, I'm informed, is Chris Kaman. Now that Marcus Camby (double-figure rebounding last two games) is nearing full strength, the 1-6 Clippers are open to a rational market trade for the big guy who has battened down their middle for five seasons and is owed $43 million over four seasons.

    I doubt that we make muscle up a trade that wouldnt involve Granger or Dunleavy, but I would love Kaman here. Good passer, and has some nice post moves. I think a future of Kaman and Hibbert as our big men would be nice

    I'd definately do Dunleavy for Kaman. Give us a player for a position we're pretty weak at http://games.espn.go.com/nba/feature...2~11&te=&cash=

    I'm a big Kamen fan. It would be a crazy advantage with him and Roy for the next 4 seasons. You could absolutely punish teams down low. I'm really surprised he's available.

    I'm sure that the Clips are one team that would really like to have MD Jr. seeing that MD Sr. is the coach. I don't think we should trade Mike at all but this would be a very even trade and a plus.

    The Caveman can ball and is pretty tough around the basket. We'd probably have to send them one of our bigs like Baston or McRoberts in return but that would be a pretty good, but not great, trade.

    I would trade Dunleavy, and I like the guy and his game, in a heartbeat for Kaman btw. Like Speed wrote I too am quite surprised Kaman is made available. Anyway, doubt we have what would interest the Clippers, except Granger and they aren't getting him.

    Murphy and Dunleavy for Kaman? Or Dunleavy and Nesterovic? He is probably gone next year
    anyway.

    It's not about Dunleavy. It's about starting new threads. Dun is an unintentional casualty.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    I'm not mad at him for this one. I think a new thread is okay because one, there's a new article about Kaman being available and two, I think the Clips could be one team in the NBA that really would be interested in have Mike on their roster.

    Geez, all these player X is available threads...can't they be moved into one thread? Didn't we have a trade rumors thread last year? That was good stuff (to ignore).

    Couldn't it go in the trade proposal thread? I mean there is a little bit about the player being available, then it turns into a trade proposal.
    I guess. It really doesn't bother me as is but I think the trade proposal thread should be just for fictional/hypothetical trade scenarios. If there's an article regarding a player that's on the block I think that's newsworthy and open for discussion. If you don't want to discuss it you can just read the article and be on your way.

    I also think it shouldn't devolve into multiple trade scenarios including trade checkers and crap like that.

    This is hypothetical. Most of this is just speculation. The Bobcats are looking for someone to compliment Emeka Okafor, and Vecsey says that Chris Kaman would be the man because Camby is nearing full strength. There is no source or reason why he said that they are shopping Kaman, Vecsey just said it's possible.

    Also, these "MillerTime Moments" turn into trading scenarios 100% of the time. That's all fine and dandy, but there is a special section for it. It gets old. I don't mind to read who "is on the block", or "worn out their tenure", but when they turn into trade x for y or xy for z, it can get old. There is a separate forum for that, for this particular reason.

    By the way, I am still totally against trading Dunleavy.

    what is this guy goign to give us that murphy isnt? maybe 4 to 5 points more and we lose our starting shooting guard that will score 19 a game and help our team run better?

    I'm for trading Murphy and fillers for him but that is about it. The trade does not make us a contender and actually makes our SG postilion thin.

    I'm happy with the roster as it is now and though I'm not a big fan of Murph at all I'm not even sure I'd trade him for Kaman...

    I think when healthy he gives you a HUGE center who blocks shots, dominates the boards and can score. He's a nightmare to cover when he's healthy.

    He's a legit 7 footer, 265 lbs last year before he got hurt he was averaging.

    15.7 pts
    12.7 rebs
    2.8 blocks

    and he's 25.

    I'm not advocating anything as far as a trade, but he's a huge difference maker, imho. He's a top 10 true center in the league easily, to me.

    That's why I'm shocked they'd trade him especially for the reason Vescey says. Even if Camby is rounding into shape or whatever, he can't have more than a couple of years of playing at a high level at his age.

    On a side note, if you could somehow get Kamen and Robert Swift on the same team, you could basically just scare teams in to forfeiting. Just something to consider.

    I realize Kaman is better than Rasho, but he's not worth trading Dunleavy when we already have two true centers in Rasho and Hibbert, along with Foster to back them up. Now, if we could get a PF with some size and athleticism, that would be the trade.

    Kaman scares the **** out of me. I don't know what it is, but I could definitely see dude on "How to catch a predator."

    Anyways, I'm with keeping this group together, building chemistry and seeing what Dunleavy can do when he gets back before we try to trade him.

    The first question you have to ask is, would Kamen help the Pacers and is he healthy.
    If the answer is yes to both then you take a look at it.

    Can you somehow fit Tinsley in a deal.
