The New Orleans Hornets have agreed in principle to trade All-NBA point guard Chris Paul to the Los Angeles Clippers for a package including veteran center Chris Kaman.
The American-German was selected sixth overall in the first round of the 2003 NBA Draft by the Clippers, after a career at Central Michigan University. He's played his entire eight-year career with LA.
Kaman played in only 32 games last season, averaging 12.4 points and 8.3 rebounds per game. His best season was 2007-08, in which he averaged 15.7 points per game and 12.7 rebounds per game. Kaman averaged 18.5 point per game in 2010 and was a member of the NBA All-Stars.
Kaman has missed action in two of the last three seasons due to injury, which might mean the Hornets look to move Kaman once the deal is done.
