NBA Trade Rumors: Will the Los Angeles Lakers deal Chris Kaman?


This will be the first time in quite some time that the Los Angeles Lakers will actually be “sellers” at the NBA trade deadline.

And while the most likely deal for them to make would involve Pau Gasol, it’s not out of the realm of possibility that Chris Kaman gets moved. And according to Kaman, it doesn’t really matter either way.

“I don’t care, I honestly don’t care,” Kaman said. “It’s not something that I want to do, but it’s not going to make me go to sleep at night and have to stay awake all night tossing and turning thinking about it. I don’t care. If they want to trade somebody, trade me, trade the next guy, it don’t bother me.

“It’s part of the business. The sooner that you realize it’s a part of the business, the better off you’re going to be. Just let it roll and let it happen. I’m not going to try to stop anything.”

Kaman was signed in the offseason to a one-year, $3.2 million deal and has only played sparingly under Mike D’Antoni this season.

    The team is ~$6M of getting under the tax. Kaman has too much potential for a team looking for an immediate offense boost.
    A 2nd round pick gets Kaman. (Same goes for Blake and Hill).

    As a lakers fan, I hope the team finds a way to keep him. The team will need a center in the next season, and if they find a defensive compliment, the two would be a complete solution.
