The Mavs have signed center Samuel Dalembert, bringing the big man back to the Big D after one season in the Big Apple. Dalembert, 34, started in the middle for Dallas during the 2013-14 season, appearing in 80 games and averaging 6.6 points and 6.8 rebounds per game. Following the season, he was traded to the Knicks with Jose Calderon, Shane Larkin, and Wayne Ellington for Tyson Chandler and Raymond Felton. In 32 appearances for struggling New York, he scored 4.0 points and grabbed 5.3 boards a night.
Dalembert, who was waived by the Knicks in January, also sees untapped potential in his homeland. The 34-year-old believes Haiti is a land filled with under-utilized resources, such as coffee, which, when tapped, can create jobs and improve lives. While he works out to prepare for his next NBA opportunity, Dalembert also spends time looking into how he can help make that happen. “The country just needs a little TLC,” Dalembert says, his words filled with passion. “I just want to be able to look in the mirror and say I did all I can.”
