Sixers pick up option on Dalembert
PHILADELPHIA -- Samuel Dalembert's contract option was
picked up by the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday after he spent all of
last season on the injured list.
Dalembert, entering his third season with the 76ers, had surgery
to repair cartilage in his left knee. He played in 34 games his
rookie season, which was shortened by tendinitis and bursitis in
his left knee.
The 6-foot-11, 250-pounder was Philadelphia's first-round pick
in the 2001 draft after playing two years at Seton Hall.
