The Kings’ New Offensive Star: Samuel Dalembert?
Sammy D seems to be under the impression that Sacramento wants him to shoot the rock. From Hoop Notes (via RDS): ‘In Philadelphia, I was asked to focus more on defense. But with the Kings, they expect me to play a more offensive role. I’ll be able to accomplish many more things with my new team,’ he said in his adopted hometown Saturday as part of the NBA’s promotional tour in Canada. Dalembert was excited to meet the new challenge after eight seasons with the 76ers, who drafted him in 2001. ‘The Kings were trying to get my services for two years and I also wanted a change,’ said the giant. ‘So it is a wish come true for both parties. I join a team that wanted me and it was also my will. Everything is for the best.’”
