Found July 11, 2012 on Project Spurs:
While the San Antonio Spurs were largely expected to be a likely landing spot for free agent center Chris Kaman, especially after Indiana re-signed Roy Hibbert, Kaman has decided to stay in the Southwest Division, but instead he'll be a few hundred miles north of San Antonio playing for the Dallas Mavericks.Kaman is another player in a line of veteran big men who were linked to the Spurs but passed up on San Antonio to play elsewhere, including Marcus Camby and Rashard Lewis.While Kaman would have shored up the Spurs front line and would've given the team the big man Spurs fans have had at the top of their wishlist, they will be looking at other options, including Brazilian center Rafael Hettsheimeir. After bringing back their own free agents and the likelihood that DeJuan Blair could be moved soon, the Spurs will have to make signing a center or power forward a priority. There's a chance Brendan Haywood could be amnestied with Kaman's arrival and many of us on th...

Chris Kaman may need a primer on what constitutes "big news." Moments before announcing that he had signed a one-year deal with the Mavericks, the 7-footer out of Central Michigan tweeted a photo of a dead rodent he found in his gym Wednesday morning as "part of the big news." "I think it's a muskrat?!" Kaman wrote. We'll take your word for it...

One of the strangest individuals on Twitter has to be newly-acquired Dallas Mavericks center Chris Kaman.Earlier today, Chris sent out this Tweet to the world of a dead animal he found near his gym:  I'm going to send the crack staff at TNLP to figure that out and if you want more Chris Kaman TwitPic gems, here are photos of his huge truck and him sitting on a huge bicycle: ...

Mavericks Sign Chris Kaman

The Mavs have officially broken the free agent seal in 2012, with the signing of former Hornets/Clippers center Chris Kaman. The deal is for 1 year and $8 million. Kaman, despite being one of the ugliest humans alive, actually has a pretty decent game down in the low post. Over his career, he has averaged [...]

After early offseason whiffs, Mavs acquire Collison, Kaman

The Dallas Mavericks struck out on free agent priority Deron Williams, a loss that set back the franchise's hopes of contending for another title in the twilight years of Dirk Nowitzki's career. Then Dallas opted not to match a contract offer the Boston Celtics made to Jason Terry, and days later, Jason Kidd stunned the franchise by passing on the Mavericks' offer to...

Guess The White NBA Player Holding A Handgun (It’s Not Chris Kaman!)

All you gun nut, Republican, NRA members out there can chill out. We aren’t posting this photo to “bring attention to gun violence in the United States.” Like we care what you guys are doing with guns. This is all about image for the NBA. Nothing scares David Stern like one of his young white guys holding a handgun, especially when that whitey is wearing a ‘Speed Kills...

Chris Kaman Confirms Dallas Signing On Twitter

  The Dallas Mavericks finally delivered something to their fans this offseason. And while rifle-wielding, deer-hunting Chris Kaman clearly isn’t Deron Williams, Steve Nash, Dwight Howard, or even Jason Kidd, he still is a decent consolation prize. Kaman confirmed the signing on Twitter, then expressed his excitement for Texas’ gun laws (or lack there of).   Something...

Mavericks land Chris Kaman and Darren Collison, not bad recovery

Free agency wasn't going initially well for Dallas. Deron Williams didn't work out, nor did Jeremy Lin, Steve Nash, or any other Point Guard they tried to acquire. They didn't appear to have enough ammo for a real shot at Dwight Howard, and then Jason Kidd left along with Jason Terry. But I do have to say the Mavs recovered nicely yesterday. Vey nicely I think. First...

Mavs making progress in recovery process

One of the darkest periods in the history of the Dallas Mavericks has been interrupted with a dash of good news. After being staggered by Deron Williams' decision to remain with the Brooklyn Nets, the Mavs provided fans with their first glimpse at the recovery process. And as far as good omens go, you could do a lot worse than landing an ex-Hornet center. The Mavs signed former...
