Kaman’s basketball career started while attending Tri-unity Christian School in Wyoming, Michigan, helping his team to the state Class D quarter-finals in 2000. He then enrolled at Central Michigan University, joining its team, the Chippewas, with whom he spent three seasons, leading his team to win the Mid-American Conference Championship and the NCAA tournament in 2003, receiving Associated Press Honorable Mention All-America honors.
Kaman was selected in the first round as the sixth overall pick by the Los Angeles Clippers in the 2003 NBA draft. His net worth was at its start. Playing in all 82 games in his rookie season, he became only the second player in the team’s history to do so. He was also second in blocked shots per game, third in field goal percentage and fourth in rebounds per game, which placed him at the starting center position on the NBA Rookie All-Star Team.
He went on to show his improvement in the next two seasons, despite missing several games due to an ankle injury in both of them. The team reached the playoffs for the first time since 1997, then Kaman signed a five-year, $52.5 million deal with the Clippers in 2006, which boosted his wealth. However, that season saw a worsened performance by the player, possibly due to an injury sustained in training camp. His performance drastically improved in the next season, becoming one of the most dominant centers in the NBA. In 2010 he was selected to his first All-Star Game as a reserve.
The following year Kaman was traded to the New Orleans Hornets, spending one season with the team, further improving his net worth. He then joined the Dallas Mavericks in 2012, signing a one-year, $8 million contract with the team – his wealth grew larger.
