Bucks suspend Samuel Dalembert for one game

Samuel Dalembert — the Bucks backup big man who drew some interest at the trade deadline but not enough for Milwaukee to move him — has been suspended by the team for one game, the team announced. He will sit out Tuesday night when the Bucks face the Mavericks.

The reason is the popular and vague “violation of team rules.” It is a suspension without pay.

Dalembert is averaging 7 points and 5.8 rebounds a game for the season but has seen a drop in minutes recently — 11, 8 and 16 in Milwaukee’s last three. He could be unhappy with that development, but this could be for a whole lot of reasons.

    They would just suspend a guy who has the capacity to go off for 30+ points once every 750 or so games? Pretty foolish, Bucks.

    Any post on the Bucks is a great post. Nice job. Keep the posts on the small market teams coming.

    I heard that they are going to suspend one big man every game for the rest of the season…That way, they’ll still have 4 extra in every game.

    Looks like someone is trying to cause enough disruptions to be bought out.
