Daily Five: Samuel Dalembert Will Build a Children's Center in Haiti
Each day, we'll take a quick look at five of the most important stories going on in the NBA.
Boston Globe: "Bill Walker was listed as one of the of the competitors in the D-League Dunk Contest, and he didn't even know it. He was told by Celtics PR man Brian Olive that in order to go, he'd have to be sent back down to NBDL Maine. He wasn't interested. "I'm trying to go home to see my mom," he said."
Dime: "According to ESPN and RealGM, the Suns and Sixers are discussing a trade that would send Amar’e to the Sixers for Iguodala and Sam Dalembert."
Philly.com: "Before last night's game against the Chicago Bulls, Dalembert mentioned that he has been granted a parcel of land by the Haitian government, and that he intends to build a center for children that will include recreation facilities, classrooms, a computer center and a cafeteria."
Adrian Wojnarowski: "Sources familiar with Harris’ decision suggested issues far less tidy: The Nets’ front office made it clear to Harris he wouldn’t make the short list of candidates to take over the head-coaching job this spring. Once Harris was told that, he decided he was done dealing with the immature elements of the Nets’ locker room."
PistonPowered: "I’m not ready to vilify (Rip) Hamilton. I think he really wants to be in Detroit. He went out of his way to praise Ben Gordon before the season, and I think that was, in part, an effort to show the two could coexist. And he’s transformed his game to fit better as a second fiddle."
