24 hours to go until trade deadline and I was just told that Celtics are back in the hunt for Kaman. Not willing to part w/1st yet though— hornets247.com (@hornets247) March 14, 2012
They want to do Wilcox, O'Neal, and JaJuan Johnson. Personally, I would rather keep Kaman if that is the best offer— hornets247.com (@hornets247) March 14, 2012
The Celtics are in desperate need of a big man and Chris Kaman would fill that role. However, I'm not sure offering all of Boston's injured big men will get the job done.
Thanks to JHB in the shoutbox for the find.

The Hornets are hosting the Bobcats Monday night, so how did center Chris Kaman get into proper spirit for the game? By taking pictures of himself holding a dead cat — or a Bobcat to be exact. Kaman is known for sharing pictures of his hunting spoils on Twitter, but this was taking things a little too far. By tweeting pictures of this nature, Kaman is showing he’s not too...
Chris Kaman has been mentioned numerous times as a possibility for the Boston Celtics. A trade might not work — the Celtics don’t have many assets, and it’s unlikely they would trade the ones they do in exchange for a two-month rental of a good-but-not-great center (remember, long-term is now the priority) — but A. Sherrod Blakely reports the Celtics are hoping to add Kaman...
So no trades for the Celtics, but there's a game changer still available. Essentially if the Heat are able to sign Chris Kaman (expected to reach a buyout with the Hornets) the Celtics are toast, but if the Celtics are able to sign Kaman, things just got a lot more interesting. Kaman is a former all-star, and as you can see from the stats below (the Hornets last 19 games) the...
If you have been following New Orleans Hornets center Chris Kaman on Twitter, you might have already seen this interesting photo but for the rest of us, here it is.Kaman sent out the below tweet along with these two pictures:(Courtesy of Court Crusaders)
The Hornets have not discussed buying out the rest of Chris Kaman's contract and would prefer to hold on to the 7-foot center.
General manager Dell Demps explored trade offers for Kaman, who is in the final year of a contract that pays about $14 million this season. However, the Hornets did not deal Kaman or any other player on Thursday before the NBA trade deadline passed....
If the New Orleans Hornets go ahead with a buyout of Chris Kaman's contract, the San Antonio Spurs could be suitors for his services.
Yahoo's Adrian Wojarowski reported via his twitter page that a source said the Spurs could one of the top suitors for Kaman's services.
"Miami, Boston, San Antonio will be aggressive suitors for Chris Kaman should he inevitably...
Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski says Chris Kaman will likely remain with the Hornets past the deadline. If Hornets ownership, i.e. the league, decides to buy him out, then the Celtics, Heat and Spurs will likely compete for his services.
Greg Dickerson says "don't expect anything big in the next half hour..c's hotel pretty quiet."
With the NBA trade deadline over, the San Antonio Spurs made a huge splash by acquiring former Spur Stephen Jackson from the Golden State Warriors for Richard Jefferson, T.J. Ford and a first round draft pick in the 2012 NBA Draft.
Many Spurs fans were ecstatic but the move still didn't address the Spurs' need for size.
Earlier today, a report came out that New Orleans...
I’m really hoping this guy is wearing prosthetics, if not he’s Chris Kaman ugly. If this guy truly thinks that he resembles Dirk Nowitzki, he’s as retarded as he looks. (I know that wasn’t PC, sorry). The guy looks like Harry from Dumb and Dumber – either way this is awesome.
"I really look like a caveman"
From NOLA.com's Jimmy Smith's Twitter:
#Hornets GM Dell Demps on possible @ChrisKaman buyout: "Our intention is to keep Chris."
Kaman buyout isn't looking good, but let's hope he is wrong.
Next up is the buyout watch. Chris Kaman is the big fish. The Celtics, Heat, and Spurs seem to have the best shot at signing him. Boris Diaw is another possibility.
Are you happy with the Celtics standing pat?
After all of the flip flopping, Dwight Howard stayed put in Orlando.
So did Deron Williams with the New Jersey Nets.
And by the time the NBA trade deadline expired on Thursday, there was actually more talk about who didn’t get moved even more than who was traded at the deadline.
Here’s a quick run down of the familiar names floated about in trade scenarios over the last few...
Before the season, the Celtics had interest in acquiring New Orleans Hornets’ David West. Now the Celtics are rumored to have revisited a possible trade with the New Orleans Hornets, but this time for big man Chris Kaman, according to Hornets24/7:
Hornets247 is saying a trade would involve the Celtics sending Jermaine O’Neal, Chris Wilcox, and JaJuan Johnson. To me, I have...
