Well now Chris Kaman reportedly doesn’t have to worry about getting dunked on by Damian Lillard.

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports that the 11-year big man has reached an agreement with the Trail Blazers.

With the news from Wojnarowski, it appears that the Blazers have used the full mid-level exception in acquiring Kaman.

Kaman played in 39 games for the Los Angeles Lakers in 2013-14, averaging 18.9 minute per game 10.4 points and 5.9 rebounds on 50.9 percent shooting.

The Blazers were reportedly in the market for a floor-spacing big man and Kaman is decidedly not such a player, unless he’s the center version of late-career Jason Kidd. Kaman has attempted 10 three-pointers in the last five seasons.

This was arguably Kaman’s best moment as a Laker:

Welcome to Portland, Chris!
