The Trail Blazers picked up a new backup for Robin Lopez.

And they got a guy that is going to be an interesting fit in crunchy Portland.

Portland reached a deal with Chris Kaman to come to the Pacific Northwest, something first reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.

Free-agent center Chris Kaman has agreed to a two-year, $9.8 million contract with the Portland Trail Blazers, league sources told Yahoo Sports. The second season of the deal has $1 million of the $5 million guaranteed, a source said.

Kaman has a history with Blazers general manager Neil Olshey, who drafted Kaman when Olshey was an executive with the Los Angeles Clippers.

Kaman then confirmed it on twitter.

On the court Kaman is going to find this a much better fit than playing for Mike D’Antoni in Los Angeles next year.

On twitter Kaman was having fun with Portland already.

      Yes because actually “hunting” wild pigs who are a nuisance as totally the same thing is having a guide set up a kill of a defenseless exotic animal for you.

        The killing of exotic animals for fun could be some kinda Boston thing. There’s some really stupid MOFOS there.

    I’m telling you, Chris Kaman still got it. He’s as good as a backup Center as you’re gonna get. Robin Lopez better not get injured for an extended period next season or he’s going to find out he lost his starting gig.

    BTW, what’s up with Myers Leonard? Why isn’t POR giving him a chance? Heck, he was 3rd string behind Joel Freeland last year for Christ sakes.

      Teams play their best players when they’re trying to win. Portland won a lot last year. When he did play, the phrase “looks lost” came up often.

      Because he’s brutal to watch. He pretty much sucks dude..

    • asimonetti88 - Jul 6, 2014 at 1:32 PM

      Probably cause the highlight of his career to this point was the flagrant foul he committed on Kendall Marshall.

    How long before he falls out with this count and complaining about his role in the team.
