NBA Rumors: Miami Heat Make Signing Center Samuel Dalembert Top Priority

NBA Rumors Saying Miami Heat Waste No Time After Finals Loss And Look To Samuel DalembertThe Miami Heat are reportedly interested in signing Sacramento Kings center Samuel Dalembert.It didn't take a rocket scientist to point out the weaknesses in the Miami Heat starting lineup this past season. Joel Anthony and whoever was playing point guard at the time didn't really fit in talent wise with Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, and Chris Bosh.Dalembert doesn't exactly fit in that way either; Miami won't find anyone who does, but Dalembert is definitely an upgrade.He's pretty much Joel Anthony, but twice as good. Dalembert is a liability on the offensive end, but not nearly as much as Anthony and he's a better defender and rebounder. READ MORE: Utah Jazz Draft Day PredictionsHe averaged 8.1 points, 8.2 rebounds, and 1.4 blocks a game last season. That stat-line is virtually identical to his career averages so despite turning 30 years old, he hasn't taken a step back in his play just yet.Adding Dalembert would not only improve Miami's starting lineup, but it would upgrade their bench by moving Joel Anthony into a lesser role. Anthony is much better suited to come off the bench anyway. He's a low-end starter in this league, but his value increases greatly as a bench player.The Miami Heat defense had it's moments this season in which it was scary good. It would get even better with the 6'11" Dalembert protecting the rim. David Daniels is an NFL Featured Columnist at Bleacher Report and a Syndicated Writer. Follow him on Twitter.
