Chris Kaman Agrees With Portland Trailblazers


The Portland Trailblazers’ are looking to improve their bench after it being one of the league’s worst of the last couple of season.

Yahoo!’s Adrian Wojnarowski has reported that the Blazers have agreed to terms with skilled big man Chris Kaman on a two-year, $10 million contract.

Behind LaMarcus Aldridge and Robin Lopez, the Blazers struggled to get consistent play from their backup bigs. Kaman should be an upgrade off the Blazers bench, especially on the offensive end.

Kaman spent this past season with the Los Angeles Lakers. He played in only 39 games, but was able to average 10.4 and 5.9 rebounds in 18.9 minutes.

Prior to playing for the Lakers, Kaman spent a season with the Dallas Mavericks. In 66 games (52 starts) with the team, he averaged 10.5 points and 5.6 rebounds.

Kaman, 32, holds career averages of 11.7 points and 7.9 rebounds and is a one-time All-Star. He’s played for the Los Angeles Clippers and New Orleans Pelicans prior to suiting up with the Mavs and Lakers.
