    If he comes in and stunts Valanciunas' development then Leo would have two reasons to really hate him.

    You are correct. They don't, they are over the 'cap'. If there is a MLE, or a BE, Miami, Dallas, LAL, NYK, CHI, all have it. NJ has money, but I bet they go after David West, and maybe Nene if they don't think they get DHoward the following year. But end of the day, Knicks do not have cap space.

    Here are a few things that DO NOT come to mind when I hear Sam Dalembert's name:

    - 100% effort.
    - "Awesome" mentor.
    - A great example to follow for young centers.
    - Commitment.
    - Worthy of $10 million dollars a year
    - Canadian Pride.

    The Raps should avoid Dalembert like the plague at any cost, nevermind the ridiculous salary that you're predicting we pay him. He's a documented cancer in the locker room and I'd be willing to bet that he signs his last deal this summer, lets himself gain 25 pounds during the lockout and ends up playing 75 combined games over the next three years.

    the knicks have some money and are strongly interested and honestly sam dalambert should sign overseas or the new canada league cause nba although i think it's still to early is not going to play next season. charles barkley is usually right when he makes bold statements too.

    he should sign with the heat.
    They can't pay him. I agree they need more bangers though.

    worst idea ever....Don't need another C who complains and doesn't want to play hard. What the hell do you think would make him bring it here? Cuz he's Canadian? If he can't get pumped and check his ego for a national team, I want nothing to do with him

    No offense, but I think you're on crack if you think Dalembert is coming here for $10 mil/per, and it's not cause he wouldn't take that deal. There's absolutely no chance in hell BC will throw that kind of money at him.

    Also, I doubt that just because Sam played high school ball in Montreal that makes him a likely candidate to play in T.O.. I think people overvalue that fact when thinking he would like to play here. If his conduct with the National Team is any indication of his character in general, I don't want any part of him anyways. He's a serviceable big, nothing more-nothing less to me and I wouldn't want him disrupting the teams chemistry which seems to be doing just fine.
    Damn you! I wanted to be the one to accuse him of crack use! $10 mil a year??? Great mentor??? You're talking about THE Sam Dalembert, right? Not some other Sam Dalembert? Personally, I'd sign him to a one-year contract for 4 mil, TOPS. Wouldn't want him anywhere near JV.

    On one hand I think this is a awful idea and pray this doesn't happen, on the other hand it'd make when Leo announces a lot more interesting.
    that is easily the best reason for this signing

    I think you're making a lot of assumptions about how much he would love to play for us. Why would he "love" to play in Canada when he didn't even last with our national team? On top of that Leo is here, and the two of them fighting was apparently the reason why he left the NT.

    What makes you assume he would be such a willing "mentor"? Our kids need playing time, and he wasn't happy when he didn't start last year in Sactown, and he likely wouldn't be happy being replaced in the starting lineup by another kid. He's not so old that he'll happily accept a bench role yet. On top of all that, he just came off a year of playing with a rebuilding team. With winning teams like the Knicks and Heat also rumoured to be persuing him, NO WAY he comes here. Plus, the contract you're proposing is way overpaying him. I don't see the point in signing big contracts while we're a rebuilding team. Once we're on the come up again, then we can talk spending big. At this point, we're better served saving our cap space and hoarding assets. I don't have anything against the guy, and think he's a solid player (when he has his head on straight), but we're better off just waiting for JV to come over.

    agreed, hopefully kabongo, or barnes or whoever comes out of this 'legendary' 2012 class will be the one to push us over the top? [: wishful thinking

    i think you miss understood him. I think he is saying that with the development of our young core (demar, bayless, ed, amir, val) we could be the next okc or bulls. Not that Dalembert will bring us there, rather he suggests this idea for the hole we have currently.
    Either way, the Raptors are at least one MAJOR piece away from being the next Bulls or Thunder. A piece like Rose or Durant.

    I dont know about this optimism (in op mostly) about SD being the giving, mentoring and patriotic type. Nothing in his career so far has depicted these traits...as far as I am aware. Even his blowup Leo/National team is murky. I am afraid regardless of Leo's possible shortcomings I still believe in the coach/team/player hierarchy. I am not sure what really happened but SD gave up on the team by walking. Not good form I am afraid. He has had similar problems in Philly and Sacremento so mentoring does not seem his forte. He does have talent and I am not sure if his head is on straight. Certainly Triano would not be a good coach matchup but Casey might be able. Risky though.
