Report: Milwaukee shopping Samuel Dalembert

After a month where Samuel Dalembert was all but out of the Bucks rotation, he has played more than 20 minutes in three of the team’s last five games. That included a 35-point, 12 rebound performance against the Nuggets on Tuesday night.

Are the Bucks showcasing Dalembert for a potential trade?

Marc Stein of ESPN tweets that they are… or at least were.

Sanders injured his hip Tuesday night in a pretty nasty fall and while the initial X-rays came back negative Sanders said it was sore after the game. Sanders does not look to be out long-term. If he is out a few games, that would likely just mean more burn for Dalembert as they show his skills off.

But when Sanders comes back, there are plenty of teams that will be tempted by a shot-blocking big like Dalembert. He’s also in the last year of his contract, making $6.7 million. He’s a guy who could be on the move.

      What? Im guessing this is some sorta attempt to say it’s bad to lose to the 31-16? Denver Nuggets?

      No but the Warrior play like it might position. Sometime feel bad still not too often though

      Whoa, I don’t think you saw the game. The elbows were flying from the Denver players non stop and the hilarious thing was that every time a Denver player decked a Buck in the face the ref called a foul on the Bucks. good times… Gooood times…

      I would recommend learning how to read and write before commenting on internet blogs.

    Wouldn’t mind seeing Chicago move on this. Rip for SD would be nice. Get Butler more minutes and get Noah a real backup. Nothing against Nazr, but he’s just a warm body out there.

    Thanks Kurt!…..I enjoyed a post on the Bucks.

    35 & 12 has no impact unless teams have just the Nuggets left on their schedule. Still the worst NBA vs the 5, with the Magic closing in.

    Lakers? Could make sense with the injures of gasol an Howard

    rj2323: What part of Kupchak saying they aren’t adding any more salary don’t you get?!

    Slammin! Sammy! dalemmmmberrrrrrrrrrt

    He’s great at tricking teams into thinking he’s good with insane games like on Tuesday night. The fact is this guy doesn’t try against 80% of teams, but will occasionally play well when he does try.

    If you watch 2 nd haft then you know what i am talking about 1haft Bucks leading 66-51 final loss by 8 point this game is setup for Denver win

    • bougin89 - Feb 6, 2013 at 5:56 PM

      Sometimes not speaking is a better option.

  9. roanboon - Feb 6, 2013 at 5:16 PM

    Shooting 17 for 21 from the field?! I think the Bucks better quickly brush themselves off and trade him for another 39% volume shooter.

    Shopping those Glenn Robinson-era inspired unis (in the pic) to goodwill would be a better idea.
