Report: Lakers Interested in Signing Chris Kaman

Chris Kaman


From Dwight Howard to Chris Kaman… ok.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the Los Angeles Lakers, seem to be interested in signing free-agent big man Chris Kaman.

As Dwight Howard leaves Los Angeles, the Lakers and free-agent center Chris Kaman have a growing mutual interest, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Discussions are still in the formative stages, but Kaman has a reputation as a hard-working, dependable 7-footer who can fill a needed role.

Kaman played his first eight NBA seasons for the Los Angeles Clippers, and a return to Southern California to join the Lakers has strong appeal to him, a league source told Yahoo! Sports.

Kaman is a solid big man, he averaged 10.5 points and 5.6 rebounds, in just 20 minutes for the Dallas Mavericks last season, but my goodness, no.

The Lakers obviously haven’t learned anything from last season. They were defensively inept for the better part of the season and if Kaman comes on board, that will surely continue.
