Outlook of Kaman going to the Western Conference teams

Dallas
Have the expiring deals but would have to give up a piece of their core(Kidd, Terry, Dirk, Odom) to make it work so it’s not happenining.

Golden State
Monta Ellis is really the only big reasonable contract. He would be interesting going to the Hornets but would Stern approve it? They also have the big Kwame contract that they could pair with Brandon Rush and candy.

Houston
Think they would ever trade with the Hornets again? Hornets could want Scola and candy but that would require taking on salary that Stern might not approve.

LA Lakers
Odom’s exception and Luke Walton who could retire would work. Of all the deals that make sense and the teams that would want Kaman, the Lakers make the most sense. They need a back up big and a big man rotation of Bynum, Gasol, and Kaman would be huge that no team could compete with.

Memphis
Mayo and junk; I mean candy would work. Memphis probably can offer the most young players and Memphis has the need for a big guy. Another finals worthy big man rotation, just replace Bynum with the rotation of Gasol, Kaman, and Randolph.

Minnesota
Beasley and candy. Would Minnesota even be interested? I doubt it

Phoenix
Nash for Kaman is the only option. Ya right.

Portland
Camby for Kaman, ya right. Too redundant.

Sacromento
Have tons of cap room so they would only need to include a small piece in the deal. Kaman would make a good mentor for Cousins.

Utah
Would the Hornets want Devin Harris? Utah doesn’t really need another big but that doesn’t really matter because the point here would be to acquire an expiring deal for Harris.

Denver, Clippers, Oklahoma City, San Antonio
Not going to happen

Outlook
The Lakers make the most sense here. Every other western team would have to get creative or break from the mold.
