In the wake of losing the league’s best center in free agency, the Lakers have growing interest in free agent center Chris Kaman and the feeling is mutual, league sources tell Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. As the Hoops Rumors Agency Database shows, the big man is a client of Landmark Sports Agency, the same agency that represents Kobe Bryant.
Several other teams have expressed interest in Kaman, including the Warriors, Hawks, Kings, and Knicks, according to sources. Discussions are still in the formative stages between the former No. 6 overall pick and the Lakers, but Kaman has a reputation as a hard-working, dependable player who can fill a needed role.
Kaman, who played his first eight seasons for the Clippers, likes the idea of returning to L.A., a league source said. The 31-year-old averaged 10.5 points and 5.6 rebounds in 20 minutes a game for the Mavericks last year.
