The Lakers and Chris Kaman have agreed to a one year deal worth the mini mid-level exception of $3.2 million dollars.
Kaman is not likely to replace Dwight Howard, but he does provide the Lakers with a much needed back up center to Gasol or even play alongside the Spaniard in the middle. Kaman is 31 years-old, and is an 11-year veteran in the NBA. He played for the Los Angeles Clippers from 2003-11, then for the New Orleans Hornets in 2011-12, and the Mavericks in 2012-13. In 2010, Kaman was named to the Western Conference All-Star team. Kaman has averaged 11.8 ppg, 8.0 rpg, 1.4 bpg, and has shot 48 percent from the field for his career. The Lakers will have a good back up scorer and rebounder to help Pau Gasol offensively.
As well as his on-court abilities, he’s also quite photogenic. Well, at least we think so. Here are some of our favorite Chris Kaman pictures from his career, on and off the court.
