The Future for DeAndre Jordan

As the season continues on, D.Jordan has continued to play major minutes and probably won plenty of supporters while at it. Meanwhile for myself at least, J.Collins has demonstrated adequately his ability to be a backup center. As such the following arise:

1. The Clippers are probably ready to part with Chris Kaman...

2. If the Clippers are thinking about trading Chris Kaman, what guarantees do the Clippers have of D.Jordan resigning? As his stock rises in LA, there is no doubt the rest of the league has/will take[n] notice. What kind of contract will it take to resign him? If the team is seeking to Kaman this season, there has to be assurances the Clippers won't be outbid for his services. While I notice DJ has a bond with Blake Griffin, to assume a hometown discount would be going against the trend of professional ballplayers and money. Likewise I figure if I'm a team out there, why trade for Chris Kaman's sizable contract when I could similarly (as to the Clipper thinking) avoid that contract and focus less money on a better bargain in DJ...

3. So what market exists then for Kaman? I would assume this is partially why it's harder than it seems to trade him. 

I was just curious of Clipper Nation's thoughts; I'm probably not as well versed in the overall NBA trade market, and perhaps am overlooking something...so more enlightenment the better.
