Celtics Trade Rumors: Boston Will Not Trade For Chris Kaman

According to a report by Alex Speier of WEEI, the Boston Celtics will not pursue New Orleans center, Chris Kaman, who the Hornets have made available via trade.

According to Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe, while the Celtics would not consider adding Hornets center Chris Kaman through a trade, they would have interest in him if he was bought out of his contract and became available as a free agent.

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports that the Hornets are looking for "draft picks, cap space and a young player" in return for the 29 year old Kaman.

Offensively, Kaman is a below average player. His player efficiency rating is 13.9 this season and 14.4 for his career. Defensively, he can contribute to a team by blocking shots and crashing the defensive glass. His career defensive rebounding percentage of 23.9 and block percentage of 3.7 are both above average.
