Currently destined for a trip to the NBA’s lottery, the Los Angeles Lakers have little use for some of their aging veterans.
That list includes center Chris Kaman, who the Lakers signed this past offseason.
Expecting to compete for a playoff spot, the Lakers felt Kaman would give them a force in the middle. What he’s given them however is inconsistent minutes and play as the Lakers have continued to fall further and further in the standings. Given that, Kaman may be one of the Lakers changing zip codes at the upcoming NBA trade deadline but the veteran center says he doesn’t care if he’s traded.
“I don’t care, I honestly don’t care. It’s not something that I want to do, but it’s not going to make me go to sleep at night and have to stay awake all night tossing and turning thinking about it. I don’t care. If they want to trade somebody, trade me, trade the next guy, it don’t bother me. It’s part of the business. The sooner that you realize it’s a part of the business, the better off you’re going to be. Just let it roll and let it happen. I’m not going to try to stop anything.”
Apparently, he really doesn’t care.
Kaman, who is making over $3 million dollars this season, is an expiring contract and should be relatively easy to move if the Lakers decide to part ways.
