Lakers Rumors: Mutual Interest Between Lakers, Chris Kaman?

CHRISKAMANThe list of names reportedly linked back to the Lakers continues to grow. At first it was Chris Copeland, Nick Young and every available shooter. Lately it’s been Lamar Odom, Elton Brand and other veterans. Now, it’s veteran center and former L.A. Clipper, Chris Kaman.

With the Lakers suddenly in need of some frontcourt help, a mutual interest between Kaman and the Lakers has reportedly developed, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

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

There are other teams that may be vying for Kaman’s services besides Los Angeles, including the Warriors, Hawks, Kings and Knicks.

As is the case with many of the available players this summer, Kaman will likely be able to get a larger contract elsewhere. The Lakers are remarkably restricted financially this offseason, even with Howard’s departure.

Kaman, who played for the Dallas Mavericks last season, averaged 10.5 points and 5.6 rebounds in 20 minutes per game.
