Blazers To Keep Chris Kaman

The Blazers have decided to retain Chris Kaman for the 2015/16 season, according to Jabari Young of (on Twitter).  Portland had until 4 CT to waive the big man before his salary became fully guaranteed for the upcoming campaign.  Portland declined to do so, meaning that Kaman will return for a second season.

During his exit interview in April, Kaman said he wanted to return to the Blazers for the 2015/16 season.  However, with just $1MM of his $5,016,000 salary guaranteed for next season, that wasn’t quite a given.  In 74 games (13 starts) last season, Kaman averaged 8.6 PPG and 6.5 RPG in less than 19 minutes per game.  The 7-footer has averaged 11.4 PPG and 7.7 RPG over the course of his 12-year career.
