Kaman wasn't waived by the Blazers on Tuesday, meaning he'll remain with the organization in 2015-16, reports.

Prior to last season, Kaman inked a two-year deal with the Blazers, which included a team option for the second season. In conjunction with the addition of Mason Plumlee on draft night, Portland has likely taken themselves out of the running to resign Robin Lopez, but in any case, Kaman will provide support to the center rotation once again this coming season.

Kaman said Thursday that he'd like to return to Portland next season, Casey Holdahl of reports. The Blazers have not announced if they will pick up his $5 million team option.

Kaman was productive off the bench this season, averaging 8.6 points and 6.5 rebounds in only 18.9 minutes per game. It's unclear what direction Portland will go this season, as a number of key players, including Robin Lopez and LaMarcus Aldridge are set to become free agents. Kaman spent much of the season backing up Lopez, but Lopez struggled down the stretch, while third-year center Myers Leonard emerged as an offensive threat. With Leonard seemingly headed for an expanded role next season, it seems unlikely that Portland would hold onto both Lopez and Kaman, and the team is yet to tip its hand as to whether it plans to bring either player back. If Kaman's option is declined, he'll seek his fifth NBA team in as many seasons.

Kaman (ankle) was considered probable for Game 4 against the Grizzlies, but ultimately logged a DNP-CD.

Kaman was hopeful to play Monday, but unfortunately did not make it onto the court. Although he's listed as a DNP-CD, there's a high likelihood that the Blazers were just being cautious with the veteran. Fortunately for his team, the Blazers managed to prevent getting swept, which means Kaman will have a chance to return in Game 5.
