Did not see this coming, and yet the Nuggets get JJ Hickson.

Kaman or Sacre? I think I would rather Kaman. Veteran who averaged 10 points a game last season.

He's mediocre. Allows Kobe to still shoot 40times a game

Which I'm more than ok with

I always though offensively, Kaman was a top 5 centr if not Top 3. He ius worse than Pau defensively as a Center tho.

 

 

 

 

But, he can help this team

 

 

 

 

 

Pau/Kaman

Hill/?

Metta(/?

Kobe/Meeks

Nash/Blake

 

 

Still 2-3 signings away from me saying, we have enough to be a GOOD team 

 

 

And that's IF we snag Caveman

 

 

BTW, is Miami DUMb or do they really want to pin hopes on greg Oden. In my opinion , Kaman would be a good fit there.

I would like it just for curiousity. This might as well be an experimenting season.

Can he get back on defense?

 

 

Can he shoot 3-Pointers? That is the most important one.

There is literally no downside to signing oden. If he gets injured again you feel bad and let him go. If not you have a guy you can keep experimenting with

If we got Kaman we'd have to make sure to never play him against the Nets.

last stand - I think its because Cleveland is looking to offer Oden more money (as well as Miami).

 

Kaman would work as a back-up, I have no problem with it.

SG: Bryant / Meeks / Vujacic

PG: Nash / Blake

Let's say we get Kaman.
Since obviously Pau isn't going anywhere because of Kobe.
IF there is a trade coming, would it include Hill?
