    Default Samuel Dalembart

    Should we pick him up and waive Steisma. I think we should, give our Canadian boy a chance to play as he always stated he wants to play either as a Raptor or our team, he would be a decent backup C behind Val and when playoff comes around, we really need his veteran service as opposed to Hansborough or Steisma

    What do you give up to acquire Dalembert? I assume Dolan would ask for a King's ransom in any trade discussions with Ujiri.

    Hmmm, interesting. In that case, Sammy would be a considerable upgrade over Steamer. And could lighten the load on Amir as well.

    But like the article mentions, I'm sure there would be quite a few teams interested.

    Yeah. I thought he would have been part of the Knick trade due to the the Cavs frontcourt issues.
    If we knew half as much about coaching an NBA team as we think, we"d know twice as much as we do.

    Stiemsa's contract is fully garanteed can we even sign him ? he doesn't fit under the tax. 13 years in, his minimum is something like 1.4 million.

    Edit: apparently we have $4,732,477 under the hard cap, so yeah we can get him.

    Nothing is better than Dalembert.

    Why replace towel wavers with another towel waver. Steimsma anbd Dalembert are pretty much the same foul prone, no offense, shot blockers with questionable defense

    Steamer is only 25k guaranteed, so we could waive him and pick up Dally. Good move IMO. But I doubt he comes here.

    But keep in mind that it was Leo Rautins, the diva of all divas, who sent him home

    He won't make much of an impact either way.

    Dalembert is a better backup C than anyone on the roster. He's also better defensively than JV. I don't see a huge downside, though he'll end up somewhere else first.

    Dalembert has almost zero offensive game outside 3ft, but yeah, he's still able to defend the rim better than anyone on our team.

    When he isn't being stupid or lazy....which he is probably the majority of the time.

    His defensive numbers are solidly above average pretty much across the board. You can live with stupid or lazy when you have absolutely zero viable back up centers besides Amir, who isn't even a center and he can't stay on the court for his injuries. Dalembert's lousy offense I can live with. It's not that the team feeds its bigs anyway.

    I would rather play Bebe minutes (which I realize isn't going to happen). I feel like people tend to forget how bad a player Dalembert is. He's one of those guys who just doesn't "get it". He's not a piece you want on a good team.

    *oh and he's the type to complain in the media about his minutes, touches, lack of recognition, etc....
