Hammond and Skiles thrilled to have Dalembert (AUDIO)

The Milwaukee Bucks introduced one of their new faces Monday morning.  Samuel Dalemebert was traded to Milwaukee from Houston last week for Jon Leuer, Shaun Livingston and John Brockman.  The deal also included a swap of draft picks, Houston got the 12th pick and Milwaukee the 14th pick.

Dalembert is a true center, something Milwaukee lacked last year once Andrew Bogut went down with injury and was traded to Golden State leaving a void for this season.  General Manger John Hammond is happy to have him…

Bucks Head Coach Scott Skiles has been tabbed a hard-nosed, defensive coach who asks a lot out of his guy.  This style has not been favorable by a few players that have come to Milwaukee.  That seems to be the way Dalembert is wired so the pairing could be a good one.  Skiles loves what he brings to the team…

Scott Skiles say Dalembert gives them a much needed dynamic :14

Last season, the Bucks allowed the 9th most points per game last season and gave up the 4th most rebounds per game.  Dalembert is 31 years-old and is entering his 11th NBA Season.
