Samuel Dalembert

  1. Wednesday morning one liners

    Dec 21, 2011, 11:14 AM EDT

    Samuel Dalembert, Tony Battie

    Our morning look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). If you want to be the smartest NBA fan on the block — or the virtual block — order the new Basketball Prospectus preview book that just…

  2. Report: Rockets out of the Dalembert sweepstakes, Kings in

    Dec 20, 2011, 11:28 AM EDT

    Samuel Dalembert

    Samuel Dalembert is the best free agent big out there on the market right now. Problem for him is the market is shrinking and he may not get paid like he hoped. The Houston Rockets are out of the running, tweets David Aldridge of TNT and NBA.com. Sources: Rockets, at the moment, taking a pass…

  3. Chuck Hayes fails physical with Kings, contract voided

    Dec 19, 2011, 3:51 PM EDT

    Chuck Hayes

    In the wake of what happened with Jeff Green of the Celtics last week, we can only hope that this isn’t as serious or at least is as treatable. In a surprise move the Sacramento Kings have voided the free agent contract of Chuck Hayes, the team announced, as reported by CSNBayArea.com. He had abnormalities appear…

  4. Friday morning one liners (so long Brandon Roy)

    Dec 16, 2011, 11:09 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Portland Trail Blazers - Game Four

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories worth reading and notes that are not their own post here at PBT. If you read one thing today, make it the BlazersEdge look back at the career of Brandon Roy. This is spectacular stuff from Ben Golliver. In case you missed it, PBT previewed all 30 NBA…

  5. Weekend NBA rumors and deals (constantly updated)

    Dec 10, 2011, 8:30 PM EDT

    NBA basketball spaulding

    Just because you didn’t go to work today — you’re at home trying to hang Christmas lights, like that’s not work — doesn’t mean the wheels of NBA free agency and trades stopped. Not in the least. This post is your one-stop shop for up-to-date, breaking info on what is happening around the league. (If…

  6. Tuesday morning one liners

    Dec 6, 2011, 10:44 AM EDT

    New Jersey Nets forward Outlaw celebrates after scoring against the Toronto Raptors during triple overtime in their NBA game in London

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories that are not their own post here at PBT. Travis Outlaw had surgery on his hand this summer after a boxing injury (he hit a heavy bag and broke it). That was eight weeks ago and things are supposed to be healed, but the Nets doctors would…

  7. Monday morning one liners: How CP3, Dwight Howard can team up

    Dec 5, 2011, 10:43 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard Chris Paul

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories that are not other posts here at PBT. What if the Hornets traded Chris Paul to the Magic? That would be interesting. The Nets are going very hard after Nene. New Orleans has made bringing back David West its top priority. The Lakers might consider Delonte West…

  8. Report: Heat in the lead for Battier

    Dec 4, 2011, 6:09 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game One

    Shane Battier is the type of player you would expect to take a discount to ring chase. He’s been a glue guy in Houston, sticking with them through injuries and curious decisions. He was the chemistry guy in Memphis, helping the younger players get better and making the three that gave the franchise its first…

  9. Friday morning one liners: Where Afflalo gets some love

    Dec 2, 2011, 11:01 AM EDT

    Arron Afflalo

    Our daily list of things you should know about that didn’t fit in our other posts. Who is the most coveted free agent not over 6’11? Arron Afflalo of the Nuggets, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein. He is restricted and Denver will match any reasonable offer. Brandon Rush made some tweets that would have gotten…

  10. Thursday morning one liners: NBA rumor mill keeps churning

    Dec 1, 2011, 11:01 AM EDT

    Durant football

    LeBron James and Kevin Durant played flag football Wednesday night. The score: Nobody tore an ACL. That’s the only score that matters. If you want to get an early jump on MVP voting (which, admittedly, may be a tad premature what with training camps not even open yet) we’ve got you covered here at NBC.…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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) —…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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…

  21. 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…

  22. 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…

  23. 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…

  24. 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…

  25. 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…
