His New York-based agent, Marc Cornstein, told The Post Dalembert will be “a perfect fit’’ and the 6-foot-11 Haitian native out of Seton Hall had always wanted to play in New York. “He was in New York last night and for the last few days and that had nothing to do with the trade,’’ Cornstein said. “He loves the city. It will be a good fit. He gets to New York frequently, does a lot of charitable stuff here.’’ New York Post

Sources told ESPN.com that the Mavericks, who immediately made reacquiring Chandler one of their priorities after their first-round playoff exit against San Antonio, soon will complete a trade with the Knicks that they will clinch by agreeing to take back the contract of New York's out-of-favor guard, Raymond Felton, as well. The trade is expected to cost Dallas two starters -- point guard Jose Calderon and center Samuel Dalembert -- along with prized young point guard Shane Larkin, reserve guard Wayne Ellington and future second-round draft compensation.
