Kaman, of course, was banished from the Hornets for seven games while the team unsuccessfully tried to unload him earlier this season. Since nobody would take Kaman and his contract that pays him $14 million this season, the NBA-owned Hornets brought him back.
Fox reports that now "the belief is that the 7-foot Kaman … could be bought out if the Hornets end up failing to get a deal they want for him." Kaman joined the Hornets as part of the Chris Paul deal with the Los Angeles Clippers.
"If they could get him, that would solidify the championship,'' the source told Fox.
Kaman is averaging 10.9 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game this season.
