Lakers News: Chris Kaman, Lakers Agree To 1-Year Deal

After looking at Chris Kaman as a potential Dwight Howard replacement, it seems the team has found their man. In a report from ESPN’s Marc Stein, the Lakers have agreed to a one-year deal with the former Dallas big man.

While Kaman isn’t going to replace Howard on the floor, he does give the Lakers what they needed – a serviceable big man. And, more importantly for the Lakers’ 2014 plans, the fact that it’s a one-year deal will keep their books clear when next season rolls around and they’re looking to make a big splash in free agency.

Kaman joins Pau Gasol, Jordan Hill and Robert Sacre on the Lakers’ front line.

Details of the deal have not yet been released.

*Update: 1:39 p.m. PST

According to Ramona Shelburne of ESPN Los Angeles, it seems Kaman will get the Lakers’ mini-midlevel exception.
