I like the move. Doesn't make them any younger though. I think the Clips should have tried to keep him or at least resign him. I don't think Jordan is a starting center.

Whatever, still a good move. I like it for the Mavs. Now they'll probably get Sessions or Felton to run the point. Although I'd think one of them would also be heading to Houston

not the biggest fan of Kaman, but the Mavs need anything right now to stay afloat in the playoff race with the amount of talent they have lost in the last 2 years.

One Year $8M Deal?

Cuban Probably Just Signed Him For His Soon-To Be Expiring $8M Contract. Cuban Will Try To Dangle Kaman At the Trade Deadline, For Young Players, Draft Picks, Or another Team's Unwanted Contract.

Later Kaman, We Will Meet Again, at the Trade Deadline :laugh2:

Good move by the Mavs.

Dirk is on a clock, and they want to keep him. So give him some help, and at least keep them in the playoffs and roll the dice.

Would have hated to see the Mavs collapse into a lottery team so soon after winning the championship.

Good, maybe not... but Felton, Sessions and a few others are still in play, so "passable" is possible.

And then there's other positions they can improve.

I'll withhold judgement until I see what they do with the cap space.

No need to argue with with ANY nets fans, the only team that has a longer playoff streak than us is the spurs...we been to the playoffs 12 yrs straight, w/ 2 conference titles, and a championship...when they can at least make the playoffs for 5 yrs straight then maybe we can have a discussion

I've always thought Kaman was vastly underrated and love the signing for you guys! Compliments Dirk's game. But dude, if you are going to take a backcourt of Session and West and say that team is the 6th seed in the west, then how the hell do you say the Nets are the 8th seed in the EAST (in the thread YOU made). I never take you posts seriously anymore and consider one of the anti-Nets trolls (look at his posts if you dont believe me guys) but I had to point out the hypocrisy here.

I don't like this signing, Kaman will be injured most of the season anyway.

Dallas should've re-signed Mahinmi. Haven't watched him much, but should be a decent center for about 6mil per year. It's hard to find a good center anyway, Mahinmi isn't skilled, but could probably collect double-doubles on nightly basis, and is big, strong and young.

Or should've kept Zeller from the draft. Would be a serviceable center on a rookie contract, unlike Haywood at 9mil/4yrs left...

Courtney Lee would be good for 6 mil as well.

True, I did not. I just checked stats http://www.basketball-reference.com/players/m/mahinia01.html. I was thinking something like Kris Humphries.

And as I said, Kaman will be injured or something, or just declining with age. Mahinmi is young, and will be consistently healthy. Heck, DeAndre Jordan has 10 mil per year contract.

Those numbers are kind of tricky w/ mahinmi because his minutes where cut drastically because the improvement of Brandon Wright, although he came up pretty big for us for the finals he is not even close to Kris humphries, but I do agree w/ you about kaman he is a gamble w/ injuries but he can still get you 15 & 10 so I guess we will just have to wait and see
