With the departure of Dwight Howard to the Houston Rockets, the Lakers now have a huge void in their frontcourt. The Lakers have had preliminary discussions with Kaman, and the veteran big man would like to play again in Los Angeles. Kaman spent the first eight seasons of his career with the Clippers.
Kaman averaged 10.5 points and 5.6 rebounds last season with the Dallas Mavericks. Kaman did have a few issues with how he was used in Dallas, but in general, he's a reliable big man that would fill a need for the Lakers.
Kaman made $8 million in Dallas last season, so he would be taking a rather sizable pay cut if he joined Los Angeles. The Lakers can offer Kaman the taxpayer mid-level exception starting at $3.18 million.
