Report: Hornets Still Looking to Trade Chris Kaman

Since his return to the team, Chris Kaman has played well, putting up solid numbers on a nightly basis. But that hasn’t stopped the Hornets from shopping the big man, as the The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports Kaman is still on the market: “With the NBA trade deadline looming in 11 days, the Hornets remain open to trading veteran center Chris Kaman, according to league sources. Kaman, averaging a team-high 17.9 points and 9.8 rebounds in the past nine games going into Saturday, has been the subject of inquiries from interested teams. He has an expiring contract, and was acquired in the December blockbuster deal that sent All-Star point guard Chris Paul to the Los Angeles Clippers. But Kaman said he doesn’t care what the Hornets may decide to do before the trade deadline. Kaman was deactivated in January when the Hornets sought to trade him, and held him out for six games, before taking him off the trade market Feb. 3 when they couldn’t find a trade offer they liked. ‘I don’t care what they do,’’ Kaman said. ‘So if they want to trade me, trade me. If they want to keep me, keep me. I don’t care, but not in a disrespectful way. I just know I can’t control that part of it, so it’s something I don’t care about. That’s something for my agent to deal with, and I don’t think Coach cares about it. I think he’s trying to focus on winning games, and my teammates are doing the same.’”

    I understand you’re fully tanking for the top overall pick, but give your fans something to cheer about.. cmon now.

    Wise words from Kaman. He knows only to worry about the things he can control, no use stressin.

    The Hornets on the other hand, I don’t think they are in a good trading position. I think they are better of keeping a guy like Kaman, an always undervalued PF/C who works hard and produces. They will never get his true value on the trade market.

    Stern traded Paul for what now. Gordon and Kaman are leaving. Aminou doesn’t see the floor to play and the 1st round pick sucks now. BOOK IT!!

    I don’t understand it, how many legit 7-footers in the NBA right now can give you at least 18 and 10?? But still…

    why is i so hard for people to understand that Eric Gordon is a RFA? He cant just leave, Hornets can either match any offer for Gordon or do a Sign & Trade.
