That's an insider article that most cannot see. Would you post a summary/quote of the bit with the Bobcats?
writer thought this could be a possibly, might be an idea. But he also does not know his facts, yes we drafted Tobias Harris but does be know that we traded him also. Just a lockout limbo discussion.
we drafted Tobias Harris...hmmm I think is name was BismackCenter
Potential team in need: Charlotte Bobcats
High-end target: Dwight Howard
Under-the-radar get: Chris Kaman
Charlotte centers Kwame Brown and Joel Przybilla will be heading into free agency. DeSagana Diop's ruptured right Achilles tendon injury will potentially make him unavailable for the start of the season -- if it were to start on time. Add it all up and the Bobcats might lose all three of their centers from a season ago.
Kaman had a lackluster 2010-11 campaign due to an injury that limited him to appearing in only 32 games. But he was getting All-Star consideration during the 2009-10 season, and wouldn't hamper Charlotte's payroll for years to come, as he's on an expiring $12.2 million deal in 2011-12.
With the Bobcats selecting PF Tobias Harris and having Tyrus Thomas -- who's of starting quality at PF -- along with D.J. White for depth, it's possible Charlotte could float back Boris Diaw, a player on an expiring $9 million deal in his own right.
There's a chance that the Bobcats might not view sending their starting power forward from last season for Kaman, whose stock has dropped, as the most prudent play this offseason. And the Clippers might only be inclined to do this deal if they're able to retain restricted free agent center DeAndre Jordan. Still, Kaman could be a strong addition at center for Charlotte.

That's on ESPN Insider? I was talking to my Pops today about internet typos. I mean if you read Peter King's MMQB, it's riddled with typos. Kaman though? White, ADHD, aging center? I'm good.
I love how they think Boris would get us Kaman...and it'd be us having the 2nd thoughts. Kaman is often injured...but I'd have to think he could pull better than that idea.

Would MJ be willing to give Kaman a three or four year deal?
If we could trade an expiring Boris for an expiring Kaman, I would do that in a heartbeat and feel like I stole something!
