Dalembert is far from an allstar, but is a very solid roleplayer who definately would fill a huge need.

Too bad he doesn't see himself as a role player, or live up to his potential on most nights. I guess his PER is off the charts though.

dalembert would be catastrophic mistake - probably the worst possible fit for us. For a minor upgrade over bargani on team defense, he will be a massive downgrade on everything else (offense, attitude, consistency, toughness and to an extent man to man defense).

With dalembert, teams will be free to collapse on Bosh, since dalambert has no offensive game to speak of (beyond point blank dunks).

JO isnt a center. Dalembert causes more problems for the other team just getting the ball in the paint because of his length and hes got more quickness than JO.

Like Ive said, Bosh needs a true C next to him, whether its Dalembert or whoever, him and Bargs isnt going to work.

And really, who gives a crap if Dalembert or any center we get doesnt have a post game or cant score on his own, we dont need that. We need perimeter scoring and interior defence, and Dalembert does one of those things well.

Why is everyone assuming thatid Sammy was hear Bosh still would be?

Bargs would pair with Someone like Sammy very well, while Bosh would not.

What Samuel Dalembert brings to the table is precisely what the Raptors need, a legitimate big who will defend and rebound, block shots and at the very least alter heaves. There has been absolutely no link between Dalembert and the Raptors, but it's no secret the Seton Hall product asked to be traded earlier this season when he wasn't getting consistent minutes. The Sixers, turns out, tried in vain to ship out Dalembert prior to Feb. 19 trade deadline.

OMG, does this idiot even watch any Raptor games? I notice their is no mention of Pops in his article, but he mention every other big so I am assuming that he doesn't even know Pops is on the team.

The J.O. experiment didn't work why does this bozo think Dalembert would is beyond me. To say that he is everything the Raps need is beyond dumb. what we need is a SF (if we can resign Marion for a reasonable price I am happy with that), desperately desperately need a good CONSISTENT SG and some depth needs to be added to the bench.

JO might not be a center per se, but he can defend centers better than dalembert who is as skinny as bosh. And the reason we don't need scoring from our C is because we have him. Don't underestimate the impact Bargnani has on how Bosh is defended. The only plus with dalembert is that on a few nights every season (when he doesn't foul out) he will give us better interior D. Think about for a second, why would a team almost give away a starting center that only makes 10 millions and blocks a ton of shots? Not to mention that Brand and dalembert were a horrible fit, and brand plays a fairly similar game as Bosh does.

Dalembert is overpaid for what he brings to the table. Plus he's an asshole.
There's probably another low post rebounder/defender out there for cheaper.
How about Joel Przybilla?

Most teams still sag in on Bosh despite Bargnani being on the floor. It has more to do with our terrible spacing and lack of talent on the perimeter but anyway..

Brand and Sam werent a terrible fit, its only Brand being a bad fit because Philly cant space the floor for him due to their complete lack of shooting. The way they built that team is just bad, they look like a nice young team but they have way too many of the same kind of player, most of them not being able to shoot, and theyre really gonna have to shake it up or theyre gonna be a treadmill team. Brand/Daly would be solid in just about any other situation. They still provided good rebounding and interior D for the team.

The only way we can get away with Bargs and Bosh being on the floor at the same time for 35 mpg is if we get a really good coach and surround them with a Billups/rip/Prince type backcourt lineup.

And with Pryzbilla, theres no chance Portland is going to give him away. Hes by far the best backup C in the league and he loves it in POR. The guy could put up 13 rpg if he played 30 mpg.

That guy is sick but I doubt Portland will let him go, and I doubt he would want to leave Portland
