New York Knicks Have 'Expressed Interest' in Samuel Dalembert

The New York Knicks are reportedly interested in bolstering their front court with veteran center Samuel Dalembert and they have extended an offer. The problem is that the team can only offer Dalembert the veteran minimum salary, so it is highly unlikely that the two sides would reach a deal.

From Jared Zwerling of ESPN New York:

The Dallas Mavericks are the other team with interest in signing the free agent.

After missing out on Dwight Howard and Andrew Bynum, the Mavericks are desperate to land a big man that can help bolster their post game. Thanks to their salary cap situation, they would be able to offer significantly more than the Knicks, so they are the clear favorite to land Dalembert.

Of course, there could be the slim chance that Dalembert likes New York more than Dallas and that he would be willing to play for less money, but that doesn’t seem likely.
