Found February 06, 2013 on Hoop Fantasies Fantasy Basketball Blog:
The Milwaukee Bucks appear to be trying to sell high on Samuel Dalembert -- just like a fantasy team. Not even 24 hours after the reserve center hammered the Denver Nuggets for 35 points and 12 rebounds, comes these tweets from ESPN's Marc Stein that Dalembert is on the trade block. Word is Bucks have been shopping Sam Dalembert thanks to emergence of Larry Sanders. Let's see if Sammy's 35 & 12 has impact on interest — Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) February 6, 2013 Of course, the Bucks may be playing coy, too. Bucks' appetite to trade Dalembert, however, could likewise be impacted by Larry Sanders' injury last night. Might feel they need him again — Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) February 6, 2013 Nah, they're just trying to get a better deal. I'm guessing the Bucks would be more than happy to unload Sam Dam's expiring contract. The Bucks are loaded with bigs (Sanders, Ersan Ilyasova and John Henson). There's got to be an odd man out, and Sammy D appears to be that guy.
