Clippers Looking to Trade Kaman?

Caught this article this morning from Peter Vescey in the NY Post.  If true, it seems as though MDSr is actually doing something as GM that could help the team.  I had mentioned in previous posts that I thought the Clippers would be better off with a traditional PF rather than two centers.  There are a number of angles here.  First, interesting that they are seeking to move Kaman here.  Doubt they resign Camby in two years, so it would seem that someone has decided that they can't win with Kaman. 

Second, this appears to reflect a realization within the Clippers that they need more range and athleticism from the PF position, and that this would help them more than the positives that go along with the twin towers approach.  I would speculate that this attitude might be coming from BD. 

Third, since Kaman's contract is not horrible by current NBA standards, and since he's a 7 foot center, the Clippers might be able to get someone halfway decent for him.  I suspect that they will seek someone younger with upside, but that could create salary issues.  (Maybe they can wrestle Philly's newly-signed PF away . . .)  Let the speculation begin. 

In any event, I see the Clippers trying to leverage their assets as a positive trend, whatever the outcome.
