08:09 AM ET 03.23 | While it took time for Samuel Dalembert to figure out his fit in Sacramento, he's averaging a double-double over his past six games. Dalembert is the defensive anchor that the team was looking for when he was acquired last June. Plus, he's providing some unexpected offense. The Kings made it clear how they feel about Dalembert when they elected not to deal the nine-year veteran before February's deadline. There was interest from teams looking for a veteran big man or looking for financial relief after the season since Dalembert is in the last year of his contract. ... He now speaks about the Kings needing to improve and play good basketball as the season winds down, despite their 17-52 record, but he's understandably noncommittal about next season. "I just want to let everything play out," Dalembert said.
