Portland signs C Kaman

Portland, OR (SportsNetwork.com) - The Portland Trail Blazers made it official with center Chris Kaman on Thursday, agreeing to a deal with the former All- Star.

Terms of the contract were not immediately disclosed, but multiple media reports last week had the contract at just under $10 million over two years.

"We targeted Chris early in the process believing his offensive versatility and defensive presence would make for a quality addition to our frontcourt," said Portland general manager Neil Olshey.

Kaman spent last season with the Los Angeles Lakers, averaging 10.4 points with 5.9 rebounds in just 39 games during his injury-riddled season. Injuries have plagued Kaman throughout his 11-year career. The Central Michigan product played 82 games just once, as a rookie with the LA Clippers.

The 7-footer spent his first eight seasons with the Clippers before one-year stints with New Orleans, Dallas and the Lakers. He holds career averages of 11.7 points, 7.9 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per game

"I am extremely pleased to add Chris to our roster," Blazers head coach Terry Stotts said of the 2010 All-Star reserve. "He is a proven NBA talent and will both bolster and complement our frontcourt at both ends of the floor."
