Samuel Dalembert

  1. Free agents already eyeing Miami as destination

    Nov 29, 2011, 9:17 AM EDT

    Heat's James celebrates a basket with teammate Wade during Game 1 of the NBA Finals basketball series in Miami

    Warm weather. No state income tax. The chance to play with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. The chance to win a ring. All of the tantalizing distractions a single man could ask for. There are a lot of reasons NBA players like Miami. And right now, the upcoming crop of free agents seems to like…

  2. Mike Miller still likely gone in Miami, amnesty casualty

    Nov 28, 2011, 3:05 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    In an ideal world, the Miami Heat would like to keep Mike Miller around, because if he does bounce back from last season’s injuries and this summer’s surgeries, he is a perfect fit. He can stretch the floor with his shot, is a solid team defender and can rebound. But alas, the math of the…

  3. Dalembert considering Heat, Knicks, Rockets

    Nov 28, 2011, 12:52 AM EDT

    Samuel Dalembert

    Centers are at a premium in this league, that should be evident by now. Nene, Tyson Chandler, Marc Gasol, all will lead this free agency class. Dwight Howard headlines the next. Chandler’s defensive impact was a primary factor in the Mavericks winning the title. So Samuel Dalembert will be getting his fair share of calls…

  4. What the Kings should do when the lockout ends…

    Sep 9, 2011, 10:30 AM EDT

    Paul Westphal, Tyreke Evans

    This is the next installment of PBT’s series of “What your team should do when the lockout ends.” Today it’s the Sacramento Kings. You can also read up on the Lakers, Timberwolves and Mavericks as we start to work our way through all 30 NBA teams. Last Season: So much for all that dazzling promise. The Kings were like that…

  5. Knicks may solve center problem with… Kwame Brown?

    Jun 27, 2011, 8:10 AM EDT

    Kwame Brown

    The Knicks need someone to protect the rim and play some defense as a big man. Ronny Turiaf tried but he is a great backup, not the answer. However they really want to preserve their cap space for potentially getting another superstar in 2012 — hello Dwight Howard or Chris Paul (new CBA willing) —…

  6. Heat looking to add Samuel Dalembert?

    Jun 13, 2011, 9:02 PM EDT

    DALEMBERT_SAMUEL

    This isn’t a rumor based on sources so much as it is one based on common sense. As well as Joel Anthony played as a starting center against both Boston and Chicago, the Heat desperately need a true center who can protect the rim, finish plays, and provide both size and athleticism on both ends…

  7. Look for Knicks to go after Dalembert, not Marc Gasol

    May 24, 2011, 1:03 PM EDT

    Samuel Dalembert

    The Knicks need a center. There will be a few interesting ones out there on the free agent market. But while Marc Gasol is one of the biggest name and the one that gets mentioned a lot in conjunction with the Knicks, that is not what they are looking for, tweets Chris Manix of Sports…

  8. Knicks have eyes for free agent Samuel Dalembert

    May 4, 2011, 9:55 AM EDT

    Samuel Dalembert

    The Knicks are talking defense this summer. Which is a change of pace since they didn’t play any last season. But while the talk of defense has in part focused on Mike D’Antoni and his coaching style (reports are he’s being pushed to hire an assistant as a defensive coordinator) that ignores the real problem…

  9. If Kings make trade, saving money will be motive

    Jan 6, 2011, 9:44 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

    At $44 million, the Sacramento Kings have the lowest payroll in the NBA this season. Still, at the trading deadline they will be sellers with their primary motive is to keep costs down and preserve their cap space heading into the new Collective Bargaining Agreement, according to Sam Amick of FanHouse in a detailed post…

  10. Winderman: NBA has its own one-and-done players

    Jan 6, 2011, 3:12 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    So just over a year after arriving, Ron Artest apparently is having issues with the Lakers. Does this surprise anybody? Or could it be that Artest becomes just the latest one-and-done example in this league, a player who is everything as advertised upon arrival in terms of basketball skills and then becomes everything as advertised…

  11. Samuel Dalembert not happy with shrinking role, may seek trade

    Jan 6, 2011, 10:32 AM EDT

    Samuel Dalembert

    In the Sacramento Kings last three games, Samuel Dalembert has averaged 10 minutes and 3.3 points per game. That’s primarily because rookie DeMarcus Cousins is tearing it up — he has averaged 22.7 points on 55.8 percent shooting over that same three games. Cousins is playing well and Cousins is the future, so he gets…

  12. Sacramento Kings not interested in Yao Ming

    Dec 29, 2010, 10:11 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Sacramento Kings

    As we told you yesterday the Houston Rockets are seeing if there is any interest in Yao Ming’s expiring contract around the league. They did contact the Sacramento Kings but were told, “thanks, but no thanks” according to the Sacramento Bee. The reason is the discussions started with DeMarcus Cousins, a rookie that — despite…

  13. NBA Season Preview: The Sacramento Kings

    Oct 19, 2010, 3:56 PM EDT

    Kings_team

    Last season: 25-57, in a year that was really all about figuring out that Tyreke Evans is a star you can anchor a team around. He is. And they found a nice young core to go around him. Head Coach: Paul Westphal, who did a pretty good job trying to build young team and getting…

  14. Spencer Hawes in danger of missing Sixers’ opener with back problem

    Oct 13, 2010, 12:21 PM EDT

    Image (1) sixers-logo-thumb-250x250-11402.jpg for post 1905

    Spencer Hawes is going to be pivotal for the Sixers this season — he’s been brought in from Sacramento and asked to provide all the defense and rebounding that Samuel Dalembert did, plus some of the offense he did not. Hawes may not be doing that for the season opener. Back issues have kept Hawes…

  15. With Dalembert out, DeMarcus Cousins to get a lot of rookie run

    Oct 13, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    dcousins

    In a few weeks, general managers in Philadelphia, New Jersey and Minnesota could face a question — why did you pass on DeMarcus Cousins? That’s because no rookie is likely to get off to a faster start than DeMarcus Cousins in Sacramento (save maybe John Wall in Washington). With Samuel Dalembert out for the first…

  16. Samuel Dalembert out four to six weeks in Sacramento

    Oct 13, 2010, 12:11 AM EDT

    Dalembert_kings

    The Kings new center, the one that is supposed to blend so well with their offense and provide the defensive presence they need, is going to miss the first few weeks of the season. Not good. Samuel Dalembert is out four to six weeks with an abductor strain — the muscle that runs along your…

  17. NBA Season Preview: The Philadelphia 76ers

    Sep 16, 2010, 1:32 PM EDT

    Last season: They went 27-55, which is wholly unspectacular. They weren’t as bad as the Nets or the Timberwolves, but the Sixers were in that next group of teams that stand out only for their failure to compete.  Head Coach: Doug Collins, who’s here to win friends and influence people. Key Departures: Samuel Dalembert, Allen…

  18. Samuel Dalembert wants the rock

    Sep 13, 2010, 11:38 AM EDT

    Philadelphia didn’t expect scoring out of Samuel Dalembert, he was the defensive stopper. Last season he got an average of 6.4 shots per game and that led to 8.1 points. Not much, but those numbers were up from the year before. But Dalembert can score, and he wants the rock, as he told RDS.ca (as…

  19. Dwight Howard helping out youth in Haiti

    Sep 1, 2010, 1:43 PM EDT

    Samuel Dalembert is not the only NBA player who hasn’t forgotten about the devastation in Haiti. Dwight Howard announced that he will co-host the Concert for a Cause… Remembering Haiti scheduled for Sept. 15 at the House of Blues in Orlando (via the Orlando Sentinel). He also will be traveling to Haiti this month and…

  20. You may have forgotten about Haiti, Samuel Dalembert has not

    Aug 14, 2010, 2:50 PM EDT

    Samuel Dalembert lost three family members and about 10 friends when that devastating earthquake rocked Haiti last Jan. 12. If he wasn’t at his best on the court for the second half of last season, you can forgive him. That quake killed an estimated 230,000 and left 1 million people homeless. And while the fundraising…

  21. Spencer Hawes gets another chance, but Philadelphia is not so forgiving

    Jun 23, 2010, 12:36 PM EDT

    Right now, everything is good between Spencer Hawes and Philadelphia. The management there, his teammates, the fans are all good with him. It was that way in Sacramento for a long time. He was to be the future. Hawes and the fans loved each other. But that soured. He can drain threes (at a 30…

  22. Report: Sixers trade Dalembert to Kings for Nocioni and Hawes

    Jun 17, 2010, 2:14 PM EDT

    In what likely would be the first domino in a series of moves, the Philadelphia 76ers have reportedly made a trade to start shaping the roster more to the liking of new coach Doug Collins. Samuel Dalembert will be traded to the Sacramento Kings in exchange for Spencer Hawes and Andres Nocioni, according to ESPN.com’s…

  23. Trade Deadline: DEFCON Atlantic Division

    Feb 17, 2010, 3:18 PM EDT

    A quick look at the league, division by division, at where all the teams in the NBA are as the trade deadline hits zero hour. DEFCON indicates how close they are to a major move, with 5 means standing pat and 1 means already have a deal in place. Here’s the Atlantic Division. Boston Celtics:…
