Not sure this is going to change a whole lot, but according to the four-lettered the Dallas Mavericks are set to sign veteran free agent center Chris Kaman to a one-year contract.
No way Dirk Nowitzki leaves the Mavericks now. Kaman and Dirk are buddies from their days on the German national team (BTW - Kaman's grandparents are German, which allowed him to be eligible for the German national team).
Kaman is 30, and a veteran of nine NBA seasons, including last year with the Hornets. He averages 11.9 points and 8.3 rebounds per game.
Kaman is no Tyson Chandler, but he has a nice offensive game. More important, adding Kaman means the Mavs are likely going to use their amnesty clause to dump center Brendan Haywood.
Haywood came to the Mavs in February of 2010 in the Caron Butler deal, and eventually was exposed as an overpaid backup who was starting because there was no one else.
