NBA Rumors: Houston Rockets Could Move Samuel Dalembert Before The 2012 NBA Draft

[blackbirdpie url=”https://twitter.com/stevekylerNBA/status/215860522854268930″]

The 2012 NBA Draft is just a week away so the the NBA rumors are flying fast and furious.  The latest rumor has the Houston Rockets attempting to move center Samuel Dalembert and the 16th pick in the draft.  I would assume that they are trying to move up into the lottery.

Never underestimate what the Rockets could be doing.  They have assets and still searching out that superstar to build the team around.  If they are able to get a high lottery pick, that might give them an extra chip to play with if they want to trade.  They are an okay team right now, but need more pop.

Dalembert is still a good defensive center, even though his offense is fairly awful.  You can never have enough good post defense, so I imagine that there have been a lot of calls for him.  He is still effective and would be a good bench guy for a team in contention.

This is the best time of the year for pro basketball.  The Finals are wrapping up, which means trade, draft, and free agency rumors are in full force.   If you do not enjoy this time, I can not imagine that you are a fan of basketball.

This is only the latest in a week full of NBA rumors.  Who is the next guy to be moved?  What teams are looking to make that big splash?  We will update you when more info comes in.

Archie Goodwin Hits Epic Game-Winning Three

The Phoenix Suns are legit playing without five or six important members of their rotation currently, so guys who don't normally make the highlight reels are getting an incredible amount of playing time. This is the case for Archie Goodwin, who started at point guard in Brandon Knight's absence and hit this improbable three with time running out to cement a 98-95 win. Things haven't been go swimmingly in Phoenix this season, so it was awesome to see Suns fans and players alike enjoy this hard-fought win.
