Rockets Trade Rumors: Rockets Won't Get Samuel Dalembert

The Sacramento Kings have a nice problem that the Rockets don’t: two legitimate starting centers in Samuel Dalembert and DeMarcus Cousins. They don’t plan to remedy that problem either.

ESPN’s Chad Ford reports that though the Rockets were among many teams inquiring on Dalembert, the Kings are going to hold on to the big man for now. In fact, they might possibly give him a contract extension if you believe Ford. The Rockets, of course, are desperate for a center that can bring some real interior defense without Yao Ming.

So, like all big man rumors involving the Rockets that don’t start with Hasheem Thabeet, you can put this one to rest. No word on the response from the European team with the rights to Frederic Weis yet.
