The New Orleans Hornets are trying to move center Chris Kaman and his $14 million salary. The Hornets are so intent on trading Kaman, they aren’t playing him out of fear he may get injured.
While Kaman and his 11.7 ppg and 8.3 rpg career averages would be a welcome additon to the Celtics, a trade is virtually impossible. The Hornets want something of value in return, not a Jermaine O’Neal, Chris Wilcox, JaJuan Johnson and E’Twaun Moore cocktail. Those salaries don’t even work, but you get my point.
As ESPN Boston’s Chris Forsberg points out, the only chance for Boston is for Kaman to be bought out of his deal. If that happens, the Celtics could offer a veteran minimum deal.
Teams rumored to have interest in trading for Kaman include the Spurs, Pacers, Rockets and Jazz.
