Chris Kaman played with the Los Angeles Clippers from 2003 until 2011, when he was traded to New Orleans. He proved an asset immediately, recording 10 points and 5 rebounds in his first game. Still, Berri says that the player is overpaid.

“The numbers tell us that Kaman probably isn’t going to be the answer to anyone’s prayers,” Berri said. “Although he is capable of launching shots at the basket, he isn’t very good at getting the shots to go in. Plus he isn’t a great rebounder. And that means he is very much overpaid.”
