The Milwaukee Bucks have been actively shopping Samuel Dalembert according to ESPN’s Marc Stein.

The Canadian centre had a monster game on Tuesday night when he recorded 35 points and 12 assists in just 27 minutes in a loss to the Denver Nuggets but Dalembert has seen his minutes fall with the emergence of shot-blocker extraordinaire Larry Sanders.

Any potential move could be held up by an injury to Sanders as he suffered a nasty spill in the Bucks loss to the Denver Nuggets Tuesday. Initial x-rays indicate that Sanders will be fine but he expected to be examined further on Wednesday.

Dalembert, who was acquired from the Houston Rockets at last June’s NBA draft, is averaging 6.7 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game this season. He is in the final year of his contract and is only earning $6.7 million which may make him more attractive to other teams.
