Knicks are looking for ‘fresh’ Dalembert to be a defensive force

Old center, meet the new center. Knicks legend Willis Reed graced West Point and Knicks training camp Wednesday and stopped for a chat with the franchise’s likely new starting center, Samuel Dalembert. The 33-year-old Haitian is not trying to fill Reed’s immense shoes — but will attempt to fill those left by Tyson Chandler. “We had a talk and he said what we need from you...

New York Knicks: Are any free agents worth pursuing?

With the NBA season steadily approaching, teams are still on the lookout for any more free agents worth adding to their roster. All of the premier players in this free agency class have already been signed to new teams or re-signed back to their respective teams, but that doesn’t mean that the rest of the group is worthless. If the New York Knicks were to pick up any free agents...

Dallas Mavericks free agency grade: A

With free agency looming nearly a month and a half ago, Mark Cuban and the Dallas Mavericks were in the running of getting all-star center Dwight Howard. The Mavericks, who dumped key players from their title team three years ago (Tyson Chandler, Jason Terry and J.J Barea to be specific), have struck out in free agency before. They tried to get Howard last season as well as point...

Bucks' Dalembert earns respect, then time

ST. FRANCIS, Wis. -- It's natural for a human being to long to feel needed or wanted. There was a stretch of time this season in which Bucks center Samuel Dalembert felt neither. More often than not in professional sports, players used to playing a big role that suddenly find themselves not playing at all sulk, pout and bring nothing positive to the team. Though he called the...

Milwaukee Bucks put Samuel Dalembert on the trade block, try to sell high

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'...

Bucks Tuesday: Dalembert catching on

MILWAUKEE -- Early on, Samuel Dalembert was becoming an afterthought. Sure, he'd be in the starting five, but in the first four games of the season, Dalembert would exit quickly and sometimes never return.Acquired from Houston in an offseason trade to give the Bucks the true center they lacked after Andrew Bogut was injured and then traded a year ago, Dalembert was watching his...

Dalembert reports to Rockets' camp

Samuel Dalembert is a realist, and equal to his defensive might and rebounding prowess, the attitude he brings to the Rockets is of value. The Rockets coveted Nen only for the free-agent center to re-sign with the Nuggets. They traded for Pau Gasol only for NBA commissioner David Stern to void that three-team agreement between the Rockets, Lakers and Hornets. Dalembert had been...

Samuel Dalembert signs with the Rockets

Samuel Dalembert has signed a two-year deal with the Houston Rockets, according to ESPN's Marc Stein. Sam Dam likely becomes the Rockets' starting center. This is great news for Dalembert's fantasy prospects. He's not stuck Sacramento's crowded front court (Hickson, Cousins and Thompson), and I'm guessing he'll average around 30 minutes in Houston....
