NBA Trade Rumors: What Chris Kaman Trade Would Ask from 6 Interested Teams

Chris Kaman could be flipped by the New Orleans Hornets just a couple of months after being acquired from the Los Angeles Clippers in the Chris Paul trade.

According to ESPN.com, the Hornets are actively looking to trade Kaman. Kaman, who is inactive while being shopped, has struggled to fit in with the Hornets, shooting a career-low 43.8 percent from the field.

Already, teams are lining up for the services of the 29-year-old center from Central Michigan.

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports tweeted, the Houston Rockets, Utah Jazz, San Antonio Spurs and Indiana Pacers are interested in trading for Kaman.

The Plain Dealer reported that the Cleveland Cavaliers are interested in Kaman.

The Boston Globe notes that the Boston Celtics would like to acquire Kaman, but want his contract bought out in the process.

The Hornets and the NBA have a couple of stipulations on the trade. The team must make the modest accommodation of taking at least most of Kaman's expiring contract. Also, the team must be willing to give up young players, and perhaps draft picks as well. By the way, since the NBA owns the team, commissioner David Stern must approve the deal.

That shouldn't scare teams away since trading Chris Kaman isn't as big as trading Chris Paul.

Following is a look at what each of the aforementioned teams may need to give the Hornets—excluding draft picks—in a trade for Kaman.
