For the Clippers, they've had Chris Kaman available to the Philadelphia for months so obviously it's not an overly-compelling proposition to the Sixers. Part of the issue is Kaman's expiring contract. Philadelphia would actually like a player with a few more years on his deal. The Sixers don't want to get out of Iguodala's contract only to feel compelled to reinvest in a large, long-term deal to Kaman. If he's a one-year rental, there are teams out there with trade exceptions and picks (Cleveland with the #4) who can erase that salary immediately and allow for another young player. The Sixers would like an impact veteran big and Kaman may be the best offer they get on that front before July. If that's not enough for Philadelphia, what's the harm in waiting until the new CBA is ratified? There's no sense a deal is near but then things may change rapidly over the next 24-48 hours. Other options for LA? There may be plenty of opportunities ahead but most after June. Still, the Clippers are motivated to get something done now if they can.
