    Default Kaman

    I brought up Kaman on the Gasol thread and then read this today.
    http://basketball.realgm.com/wiretap...aman_Situation

    The Spurs and Pistons are monitoring Chris Kaman's situation with the Clippers.
    The Clippers could elect to move Kaman if they re-sign DeAndre Jordan, but will not do so beforehand.


    I still think Nene would be a better fit for us but I also think a healthy Kaman would be just what we need.
    Kaman truly was a bull in 09/10. Kaman tossed our front court around like rag dolls in the when we played the Clippers that season.
    I don't understand how anyone can say yes to signing West who's coming off a major injury but wouldn't consider Kaman coming off knee and ankle sprains. What we need is a big man to help dominate the paint. Kaman does that. If we ended up trading for Kaman it would give us a season to evalute him to see if he's healthy enough for a long term deal. If not, then his salary comes off the books next year and we take another crack at free agency. Low risk, possible high reward. If we lose out on Nene, I would be happy to take a gamble on Kaman. I don't know what it would take to land him but I'd offer Posey and a 1st. easily.

    Here's a comparison for West and Kaman in the 09/10 season since both were injured last year.

    Kaman is a good player but at this point of his career he is a back up in a good team, he gets hurt way to much to count on him full time.

    No way I'm trading a first for kaman!

    Also u have to realize that u would be helping the clippers become a better team moving forward with possibly hindering us in the process if kaman doesn't pan out. The clippers just made a semi bad trade that cost them the 1st pick in the draft. Even in a weak draft u can't beat a number 1 pick. This year is going to be a better draft..WAY BETTER!

    In trades whoever gets the better player wins they most likely would with our pick so that would be a bad trade.

    I fully expect to be in the minority on Kaman but to say he's finished as a starter at 28 years of age is ridiculous. The guy is 1 season removed from the all star team. His injuries might be an issue but he's not coming off anything major.
    I think Kaman could be a double double machine for several more years, if I'm wrong it's a 1 year gamble before making a long term commitment.
    If the team did its due diligence and believed he was healthy, I'd take the gamble for a 1 year contract. Especially if we fail to land Nene who is the only real solution out there for us this year in free agency.
    Again, how could anyone suggest taking a gamble with a long term commitment on West who doesn't even fit our needs, and not want to take a 1 year gamble on Kaman.

    Kaman seems to have been brought up here thousands of times, do not want him. Ever.
