Hornets To Keep Kaman?

New Orleans Hornets GM Dell Demps told the Times-Picayune's Jimmy Smith that the Hornets do not plan to buy out center Chris Kaman after failing to trade him before Thursday's deadline.

"Everything is always a possibility," Demps said. "I mean there's no reason to say I'm certain, 100 percent sure. There's always a possibility. I never want to say never. But our intention is to keep Chris."

Kaman, who is in the final year of a contract paying him $14MM this season, was one of the most talked-about trade pieces leading up to the deadline, with speculation that a buyout was likely if the Hornets did not move him. He would have then become a very attractive free agent signee for a contending team, with the Heat and Celtics rumored to be showing interest. However, Demps' comments indicate that this isn't the plan and he will remain in New Orleans for the rest of the season.

      in a buyout he keeps his 14 mill and then signs with another team

      for Miami that is min. ($1.5 mill)

      so when you add that up, in the year of 2011-12 he has the possibility of making a total of ($15.5 Mill + a ring)— its a BIG longshot but it’s one heat fans can hold on to!

  2. Rickey AkaBlack Pinard

    buy him out… it’s not like he wants to stay in n.o. i mean, why not…..
