Houston Rockets Trade Samuel Dalembert to Milwaukee Bucks for No. 12 Pick
Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports has told us this: Samuel Dalembert is getting shipped out of Houston. The full trade goes like this.
Houston gets Jon Brockman, Jon Leuer, Shaun Livingston, and the 12th pick.
Milwaukee gets Samuel Dalembert and the 14th pick.
Brockman didn't get to play much last year for the Bucks. Leuer was decent when he was getting minutes. Livingston is a good back-up point guard. But I don't think the Rockets are done dealing. It's not about fit with these newly acquired players; it's about moving up in the Draft and putting together a better package to acquire someone bigger (Dwight Howard). So we'll see what happens in the next few days. Or hours.
Not sure what the Bucks will do with Dalembert but he certainly gives them depth in the frontcourt. I think what's more important is what they'll do with Ersan Ilyasova. Dalembert is a good get, though. And if they don't want him, they can buy him out (this coming year is unguaranteed).
So now the Rockets have Picks 12, 16, and 18. Keep watching them.
