A source close to the situation confirmed that the Sixers offered Samuel Dalembert to the Clippers for fellow center Chris Kaman, but the Clippers weren't interested. The issues with Dalembert are his inconsistent play and contract, which contains a 15 percent trade kicker (roughly $4.5 million) that a team trading for him would have to pay up front, in addition to the $23.6 million he's owed from 2009-11.


It's good that they denied this. Dalembert is way too inconsistent and Kaman is worth much more than that.

after what the 76ers did to the clippers, they think they can trade with them? when brand leaves or retires, then the clippers can deal with that org.

I see faith in your eyes
never you hear the discouraging lies
broken is the promise, betrayal
the healing hand held back by deepened nail
follow the god that failed

Good denial, the trade is a lateral swap for both teams - pointless.

I don't know if Kaman is worth much more than that, but the thing is that they trade one center for another - no logic there. The point for dealing Kaman is to relive the glut of big men, open some time for Jordan and get some athleticism at the 1 or 2.

Yay!

You know the Clipper organization made a good move when it has fido's seal of approval :)

Awww so close.. Kaman's far more talented than Dalembert is. Dalembert has to be spoon fed- Kaman has been shooting 60% this year, and always scores about 15+ per game. He's ambidextrous and was top 3 in rebounding AND blocked shots last year (the only two better than him were Dwight Howard and his teammate, Marcus Camby).

He's only 26 too. I'm not sure how old Dalembert is, I think he's young too but has nowhere near the upside of Kaman.

While it is kind of pointless, I'd say Dalembert is a little better than Kaman and has one year less on his contract.

Yeah with a bargaining chip like Kaman in your back pocket and big men slowly becoming all the rage again in the NBA, the Clippers can parlay Kaman into a serious athlete in the back court, or into a top 5 pick (which they hopefully wouldn't blow)

Entirely disagree.

Kaman is better in almost every facet, does have a face up jumper, can finish with either hand (funny story about that), and is an absolute stat monster.

The only thing Sam Dalembert has on him is the fact that he's not injured as much. But we could just be running into bad luck... Or a bad training staff. I don't know.

Funny story is, a few years ago when Clippers were getting set to play against the Lakers, they asked Phil how they know if "The Cave Man" (Phil was actually the first one to call him that :D) is going up with his right or left hand, Phil smartly said "Well, I don't know if even Chris Kaman knows which hand he's going up with...". LOL.

Seems like Sixers wanna be like the Clippers but better, with Brand and Kaman at the front.

That's because Brand and Kaman worked well together.

Pair them Igoudala and Andre Miller and you're looking at something that can contend in the East.

The Sixers have been winning because Brand has been out. :lol:

Maybe Kaman for Brand works more? :lol:

dalembert is better than kaman???? .... sam has 0 offensive arsenal, has digressed as a rebounder and shotblocker, too skinny for larger centers which effects his man defense, and has a tendency to disappear in games all the time, i dont agree with calm about him being a top 3 center (did he say that?) but he is a very good center when not injured (too bad hes HELLA injury prone tho)

He didn't say top 3 center.

Statistically last year he was in the top 3 rebounders last year.

Big difference.

Kaman is better than Dalembert, this trade would make no sense for the Clippers at all. If they Clipps really do want to get rid of Kaman, I am sure other teams would be willing to give abit more.
