Kings’ Samuel Dalembert Says Playing For Miami Heat Would Be “Fantastic”

I’m far from psychic and I’m certainly wrong quite a bit (or never, depending on who you ask), but given Samuel Dalembert’s recent comments about playing for the Miami Heat – he’s making me look like the anti Miss Cleo, you know, sans the whole female/male difference, mon.

“That would be fantastic,” Dalembert said in an interview Sunday night from Haiti with FOX Sports Florida about the possibility of joining Miami, which is where more than 50 of his relatives live and is about one hour south of his Boca Raton, Fla., home.

As you’ll probably recall (and you should, because, it’s the law – don’t make me arrest you), I’ve been pretty adamant (like here, and oh, here, and…)  in my feelings that Kings center Samuel Dalembert would eventually end up with the Miami Heat who are desperately in need of a solid center. I mean, it makes complete sense. As mentioned, the Heat have a bigger hole in the middle than the star of an all night porno shoot. They’re clear Championship contenders and something that’s very important to Dalembert is the locale, given the fact that Daly’s home country of Haiti is less than an hour flight away. I mean, Sacramento just can’t compete with that, outside of the ability to offer Dalembert more money if they so choose. Even then, Dalembert should still be getting MLE type money from the Heat.

The Kings are light in the middle as is – losing Dalembert would make the middle cream soft, but, I’ve already resigned myself to the fact he’ll most likely be baking in the Miami sun in a few weeks.

So that’s that…

Anybody feel like slipping Memphis GM Chris Wallace a little something so he’ll forget that Marc Gasol is a restricted free agent? I’ve got mad Monopoly money burning in my pocket – I’ll pay…

    Now that we can get back to NBA talk…I still say Sammy will get too much money. As much as I liked his contributions, I don’t want to sink a lot of our cap room on him. Let’s keep saving and make a big splash to roll with our draft picks.

    We’ll have to spend something to get to the cap minimum. But let’s just stick with smaller deals, try to keep the contracts low risk unless it’s a legitimate piece.

    Same here. I’m all for bringing him back at a reasonable price and length, but, that’s just not going to happen given the other opportunities he’ll have. If he comes back, Kings are going to have to overpay in money and years and that’s just not valuable to the Kings in their current state.
