Samuel Dalembert

  1. Mark Cuban thinks Monta Ellis will pass more, change game to win

    Oct 7, 2013, 1:45 PM EDT

    Monta Ellis

    Ah, preseason. It’s a time of unbridled optimism for fans, front office people, coaches and even owners. In Dallas they have put together an interesting but kind of ragtag roster — Dirk Nowitzki is the star, Jose Calderon the point, Monta Ellis to score points then guys like Shawn Marion, Vince Carter and Samuel Dalembert…

  2. Report: Longtime NBA employee calls 2012-13 Bucks’ locker room worst he’d ever seen

    Oct 4, 2013, 2:04 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings

    The Bucks have had one of the NBA’s busiest offseasons. They traded Luc Richard Mbah a Moute and Ish Smith, waived Drew Gooden and Gustavo Ayon, let Monta Ellis, Samuel Dalembert and Mike Dunleavy Jr. walk in free agency and signed-and-traded Brandon Jennings and J.J. Redick. That’s most of the roster turned over, yet it’s…

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks - Game Three

    Last season: The Bucks went 38-44, reaching the playoffs despite a mid-season firing of Scott Skiles. Their high-scoring and high-shooting backcourt of Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis defined the team, but it was really as a team without a strong identity. Before the playoffs began, Jennings predicted the Bucks would beat the Heat in six…

  4. Dirk Nowitzki Playing 5-on-5 Before Training Camp for First Time in Years

    Sep 21, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    15 seasons. Over 45,000 minutes of regular season and playoff minutes. International play. Training camps. Practices. That’s a lot of miles on the old odometer, but that’s not stopping Dirk Nowitzki from getting acclimated to his new teammates. After all, there’s only so much time Nowitzki has left in his career, and after the Mavericks…

  5. PBT Roundtable: Who gets the last couple playoff spots in the West?

    Sep 19, 2013, 11:59 AM EDT

    Kevin Love, Wayne Ellington, Ricky Rubio

    Welcome to PBT’s regular roundtable on issues around the NBA, where our writers weigh in on the topic of the day. Today: The conventional wisdom is in the West the Thunder, Spurs, Clippers, Warriors, Grizzlies and Rockets are playoff locks (barring catastrophe). If true, who gets those final two slots?

  7. Mark Cuban, on whether this is a rebuilding year for the Mavericks: ‘Don’t even go there.’

    Aug 24, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    Mark Cuban

    The Mavericks were one of the teams that made a pitch to Dwight Howard in free agency, and believed that with Dirk Nowitzki in the fold and with a roster’s worth of cap space available in advance of the 2014-15 season, that they’d be able to build a championship contender around Howard in just two…

  8. DeJuan Blair, Mavericks enforcer? It’s what Carlisle wants

    DeJuan Blair

    Rick Carlisle wants the Dallas Mavericks to be tougher this season. The man for the job is… DeJuan Blair? Coach Rick Carlisle says so, speaking at Blair’s introductory press conference, as reported by ESPNDallas.com. “DeJuan was a really important acquisition for us because Elton Brand didn’t return,” Mavs coach Rick Carlisle said. “We need that…

  9. Lakers’ Chris Kaman wasn’t a fit with Mavs, according to Mark Cuban

    Aug 11, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Chris Kaman

    The Los Angeles Lakers looked like they made a pretty good deal when they were able to add Chris Kaman for the taxpayer’s mid-level exception of just $3.1 million for the upcoming season. The Lakers needed a big that could come in, know his role and complement Pau Gasol in the frontcourt — but that’s…

  10. DeJuan Blair reaches deal to join Dallas Mavericks

    Jul 30, 2013, 12:40 PM EDT

    Johan Petro, DeJuan Blair

    UPDATE 12:40 pm: DeJuan Blair himself has made it official. Dallas!!!!! Now lets have some fun!!!!— DeJuan Blair (@DeJuan45) July 30, 2013 This is a good pickup by Dallas.

  11. Mark Cuban says Mavericks are ‘in a better spot’ now than if they signed Dwight Howard

    Jul 18, 2013, 3:11 PM EDT

    Mark Cuban

    The Mavericks were one of five teams Dwight Howard met with during his free agent tour, but for whatever reason, they were eliminated from contention fairly early in the process. Now that Howard is with Houston, and Dallas has been forced to fill in its roster with many smaller pieces that may or may not…

  12. Report: Mavericks reach agreement with Samuel Dalembert

    Jul 17, 2013, 8:53 PM EDT

    Samuel Dalembert

    The Dallas Mavericks have some shooters on the roster — Dirk Nowitzki, Monta Ellis, Vince Carter. They got Jose Calderon to set those guys up. What they didn’t have was a real defender in the paint — but they have solved that problem. Or at least tried to solve it. The Mavericks have reached a…

  13. Who is left on free agent market? Pickings getting slim but a few good players out there

    Jul 15, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Brandon Jennings

    Free agency has been open for more than two weeks now and most of the big names are gone, not just Dwight Howard but also guys like Andrew Bynum, Mike Dunleavy, Al Jefferson, Andrei Kirilenko, Quentin Richardson, Nick young and more. But there are a few name guys left on the market. Guys with flaws…

    Jul 12, 2013, 9:15 PM EDT

    Pacers Hawks basketball

    The Mavericks and Devin Harris had agreed upon a three-year deal in the neighborhood of $9 million that would return the guard to the team that traded him away in the deal that brought Jason Kidd to Dallas back in 2008. An injury that Harris is dealing with that will now require surgery, however, has…

    Jul 10, 2013, 9:16 PM EDT

    Samuel Dalembert

    Wednesday began with such promise in Dallas, but ultimately ended in some level of disappointment. The Mavericks began the day meeting with free agent big man Andrew Bynum. The club had its medical staff do some evaluations, and there was a lunch with Bynum’s agent and team executives where the early stages of contract negotiations…

  17. Pat Riley says don’t expect big changes in Heat roster

    Jun 27, 2013, 3:46 PM EDT

    Miami Heat President Riley reacts after he was introduced during a celebration at the American Airlines Arena after the Heat's NBA Basketball Championship parade in Miami

    Yes, there are questions about Dwyane Wade and if his game is in decline (and how fast he is going down that hill). Yes, there are questions about Chris Bosh’s role within the offense and his value to the team, particularly relative to the big checks he cashes. But don’t think the Pat Riley is…

  18. Miami has to get bigger, better if they dream of a three-peat

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    Odds makers already have the Miami Heat as the favorites to win the NBA championship again next year — 2-1 odds at Bovada online. But if the Heat thought this title run was like climbing Mount Everest, wait until next year. The Bulls get Derrick Rose back. The Pacers are not going to get any…

  19. Bucks’ Dalembert says he might switch sides to play for Heat next season

    Apr 22, 2013, 9:49 AM EDT

    Pau Gasol, Samuel Dalembert

    Pretty much every NBA player about to be a free agent talks in vague terms about keeping their options open. They are going to go where the most money comes from and they don’t want to limit those choices. But have you ever heard a player on one side of a playoff series say he…

  20. Bucks suspend Samuel Dalembert for one game

    Feb 26, 2013, 5:16 PM EDT

    Samuel Dalembert

    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…

    Feb 16, 2013, 4:24 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    The Milwaukee Bucks have the potential to be one of the biggest players at the trade deadline. They have one of the league’s best shooters on an affordable deal in Mike Dunleavy.

    Miami Heat v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Finally, here are the delayed regular Monday PBT NBA power rankings. We said this a lot during the NBA finals last year — if we see the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder face off in three of the next five NBA finals it shouldn’t be a shock. This season looks more and more like…

    Feb 6, 2013, 12:08 PM EDT

    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.

    D.J. Augustin, Al Horford

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while watching a toddler drain trick shot after trick shot… Lakers 92, Nets 83: Up until this game I was still sure the Lakers were not a playoff team, that the recent streak would not be enough for the hole they dug. But…

    Feb 6, 2013, 2:04 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks' Korver guards Indiana Pacers' George during their NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    There’s nothing quite like the phenomenon of watching a young player ascend to stardom. When a young player bursts on to the scene and starts making extraordinary plays routine, he captures our imagination. How good could 22-year-old Paul George be? Who does he remind us of? Potential is enticing on its own, but when it’s paired…
