    Default "Pacers Leader for Kaman?"

    I know there's already a Kaman thread, so feel free to merge if this is redundant.

    From ESPN Rumor Central:

    There was a report Wednesday that the New Orleans Hornets and Houston Rockets have been talking about a trade centering around Chris Kaman.

    While the report suggested the Rockets could be the leader for Kaman, My Fox 26 Houston downplayed the discussions.

    According to the television station, the two teams have talked, however they are "not close on anything, and the chances of a deal being consummated are low."

    According to Jimmy Smith of The Times-Picayune, the Indiana Pacers may actually be the leader to land Kaman and he writes: "A league source said Wednesday night that the Indiana Pacers, one of several other teams reportedly in the mix for Kaman, could, in fact, be the leading candidate for a swap. The Pacers apparently are looking for a backup to Roy Hibbert."

    The Pacers currently have $14.27 million in salary cap room and they could absorb Kaman's $14 million cap number without sending a player to the Hornets.

    This would be a difference maker, imo. Who would want to play against the Pacers frontline, anyone?

    If Love had his feelings hurt last night, just think if you added Kamen and a Jeff Foster in the mix. They'll just come at you in waves until you tap out.

    It would mean no Morrow...
    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 would much rather have Kaman, Jones, and Stephenson without Hill than Morrow & Admunson.

    Then, when Hill gets back... Oh boy, we will be loaded.

    Would that mean Amundson heads to the bench?

    I think this is the most realistic improvement for our team that we can attain without giving anything up. I really think that Wilson Chandler will resign with Denver. and we'd have to give up too much to get Deron Williams who likely wouldn't stay here anyhow. Toss them the 2nd rounder we got in the Brandon Rush trade and absorb his salary. Is there really anyone out there that could offer them anything better?

    This is just one of those things where it makes too much sense for it to happen so it probably won't so i'm not going to get my hopes up too high.

    Kaman as a backup would be a nightmare for opposing teams. Hibbert / West, Kaman / Hans. Best in the league, I'd say!

    I can't think of a better line up, as well as Hibbs has played he's also gotten pretty beat up with two twisted ankles and a broken nose etc., Kaman would be just what the Doctor ordered

    Horrible music but here is a highlight mix. Keep in mind those passes are coming from a 7-footer.



    Edit: Found one with better music.

    My only question is what type of condition is Kaman in and is he healthy. Even if both are issues, I'd still love to get him, but I'm not sure we are getting the same Kaman who was so good 3 years ago or so. Not that he's old, but he's been injured.

    Side benefit: How much better is Hibbert going to get, going up against Kaman every day in practice?

    I feel you Buck if he can be 3/4 the player he was maybe even half i'd be down with that he would still be the one of if not the best back up center in the nba.

    I was curious as to how many games Kaman has played the past few seasons

    '09 - 31 games
    '10 - 76 games - the season he averaged 18.5 points
    '11 - 32 gamres.

    Another plus: Not only would he be a great backup center, he would be an excellent backup for Peck if there's no one that day for "The Ugly."

    I would look at how many minutes he played with the clips. If anything we'd need him for what...18 - 22 minutes a game? That ain't much he could be ridiculous and go nuts during that stretch of time with tyler, but tyler needs to start practicing that mid-range game cause I could see it being somewhat of a cluster**** with Tyler and Kaman on the floor at the same time.

    I know his health would be a concern, but isn't it still worth a dice roll? For one, he would get to play backup minutes as opposed to being the starter.

    IMO, this gives us a legitimately deep bench where right now I think our depth comes and goes.
