PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN 6) — Veteran NBA center Chris Kaman has come to terms with the Portland Trail Blazers, according to multiple reports.

ESPN reported Friday morning Kaman agreed to a two-year, $9.8 million deal with the Blazers.

After not having a pick in June’s NBA Draft, the signing marks Portland’s first move of the summer. The 32-year-old free agent, who averaged 10.4 points and 5.9 rebounds per game last season with the Lakers, is expected to back up Robin Lopez.

The Blazers were initially linked with Spencer Hawes, who remains on the free agent market despite garnering interest from several contending teams.

The deal will become official July 10 when signings can officially be made.
