PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Free agent center Chris Kaman has signed a two-year deal with the Portland Trail Blazers.
The deal with the burly 7-footer was first reported on July 3, but it could not be formally announced by the team until Thursday per NBA rules. The contract is worth a reported $9.8 million.
Kaman has averaged 11.7 points, 7.9 rebounds and 1.4 blocks over an 11-year NBA career. He is expected to back up Robin Lopez with the Blazers.
