Response to Plain Dealer Report on Cavs' Interest in New Orleans Chris Kaman

The Cleveland Plain Dealer's, Mary Schmitt Boyer, reports that the Cavaliers are interested in trading for New Orleans Center Chris Kaman. Kaman, a 7' true center who was a part of the Chris Paul trade with the Clippers, is being shopped around the league by the Hornets brass because, turning 30 this year, he is not a part of their rebuilding efforts as they look to surround Eric Gordon with young talent.

The Hornets prefer committing their available minutes to the development of younger players currently on their roster and would like to acquire assets in the form of young players and/or draft picks.

While many fans in Cleveland scoff at the idea of trading for an injury prone center with a steep price tag of $14 million for limited production. There are reasons that this trade would make sense in furthering the rebuilding process of the Cavs.

Competing with other teams that are looking to acquire, perhaps that one more piece to make a playoff run will certainly make it difficult for Cleveland to swing a deal. But if they can put together a package for the big man they should certainly try. Let's briefly analyze the situation and discuss why trading for Kaman makes some sense.
