The Dallas Mavericks are ready to sign free-agent center Chris Kaman, according to ESPN.com. Neither the length of the deal or financial terms have been released.
Kaman, a nine-year veteran, reportedly received interest from the Utah Jazz, Indiana Pacers, San Antonio Spurs and Sacramento Kings.
Kaman averaged 13.1 points and 7.7 rebounds in 47 games last season for the New Orleans Hornets.
Kaman and new teammate Dirk Nowitzki also teamed up on the German national team in the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
