EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) - The Los Angeles Lakers signed free agent center Chris Kaman on Friday after Dwight Howard's departure for Houston.
Kaman averaged 10.5 points and 5.6 rebounds while starting 52 of 66 games for Dallas last season. He averaged a career-low 20.7 minutes.
His deal with the Lakers is reportedly for one year at $3.2 million.
It will be Kaman's second straight season on a one-year contract. He had an $8 million deal to be the starter in Dallas last season but spent more than half of every game on coach Rick Carlisle's bench.
The 10-year NBA veteran has also played with the Clippers and New Orleans in his career.
Kaman made the 2010 All-Star team. As a dual citizen of the U.S. and Germany, he played for the German team at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
