Chris Kaman Signs With Lakers
 
Quote:

The Los Angeles Lakers have agreed to terms with free agent center Chris Kaman on a one-year deal, according to sources with knowledge of the deal.

Financial specifics of the contract weren't immediately known.

Sources told ESPN.com that the Lakers pressed hard to complete a deal with Kaman over the weekend to ensure they have a quality starting center in the wake of Dwight Howard's departure, without impacting their projected 2014 salary-cap space.

Kaman, 31, struggled through an injury-plagued campaign with the Dallas Mavericks this past season, averaging 10.5 points and 5.6 rebounds in 66 games.

I wonder how much money they are giving him. I thought he might end up in Miami. Especially if he was just going to get a 1 year deal.

Word on the street is its a 1 year deal for mini MLE which is about 3 mill, but that's just my guess.

Anyway, the quote mentions starting C? I don't know if they should run that especially if they plan to keep Metta, that's the slowest frontcourt in the league (Gasol/Kaman/World Peace).

They'd get pick n rolled to death. :cry:

Kaman is better serviced as backup C. I'd like to see Odom return as starting PF alongside Gasol and Jordan Hill backing him up at the 4 (a role which he excels at).

Then AK47 or Corey Brewer for the remainder of the mini MLE and Nate Robinson or Aaron Brooks and it'll be a good offseason..

Seems like it is the full mini-MLE

Kaman's deal is valued at the Lakers' mini mid-level exception amount of just under $3.2 million, sources told ESPNLosAngeles.com's Ramona Shelburne.

I do not know what to make of this deal. I like Kaman's game, BUT he has been missing too many games due to injuries.

So we have..
Nash..injuryprone
Kobe..coming off major injury
MWP
Gasol..injuryprone
Kaman..injuryprone

Don't forget...D'Antoni too - injury prone to himself and the team.

Great deal for LA. I am surprised they were able to land a guy like that at only 1 year, and WAY under market value.

In a league with Dwight Howard as the best center, and other guys aren't that close, this move is a good one. Very low risk.
