What if we get stuck with Kaman?

In March, BleacherReport posted an article regarding the top 25 free agent matches and what their expected salaries are. Here was their piece on Kaman:

That's projecting 2 years at $15M. Let's say we get him for that. We have $8.8M in cap space right now, right? Let's say it's $7.2M in year 1 and $7.8M in year 2. That leaves us with $1.5M in cap space. That's not much space to use in an uneven trade and its not much to use in free agency to bring in additional players.

My point is this - if we sign Kaman, we're done for the offseason. We're onto signing our Matt Barnes' and Jermaine O'Neals. I don't like it at all. Kaman is on the wrong side of 31, injury prone, and a mere bandaid on a leaky Paul Allen yacht.

I'm not typically a dooms-dayer, but with the news of Asik being off the table (just posted to the rumors thread), Splitter working out the $36M with the Spurs, Pek being appropriately valued in MN, and McGee being projected as the incumbent starter in Denver - I'm feeling kinda bummed right now.

Again...not typically a dooms-dayer....but....things do not seem to be taking shape the way I would want. I knew we were going to have to thread the eye of the needle this offseason to make things happen - but it's just feeling less likely.

I know this post reads as somewhat of a "Dear Diary"....and I'm sorry for that - I'm sure I'm a complete disgrace to my mustache as I write this....but it is what it is. Anyone else feeling the hope leak?
