The Jazz have been linked to unrestricted free agent center Chris Kaman.

ESPN's Ric Bucher reported Thursday that Utah, Dallas, Indiana, San Antonio and Sacramento have interest in the nine-year veteran.

Kaman averaged 13.1 points and 7.7 rebounds in 47 games (33 starts) last season for New Orleans.

The Jazz are stocked at center, with starter Al Jefferson backed up by a combination of Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter, and Utah's $5 million mid-level exception is expected to be below Kaman's price range.
