I just talked to David Hein who will publish an interview with German national coach Dirk Bauermann on FIBA.com. Here is the interview:
German national team coach Dirk Bauermann admitted the national federation would be foolish to not try to get the Clippers emerging big man a German passport.
“Of course, maybe we get lucky,” answered Bauermann to questions if he would like to have Kaman control the blocks for his national team side.
“We have Patrick (Femerling) who has played a great season. And hopefully he can carry that over to the national team. But obviously a guy like Chris Kaman would be an incredible addition.”
Upon further questioning if any efforts on-going to bring Kaman in, Bauermann added: “We would be stupid if it was possible and we didn’t. And I’m going to leave it at that.”
Watch out Chris – you will get a few calls in the next few days from Germany!
