Sam Dalembert may be off Team CanadaPosted by Inside Hoops
The Globe and Mail reports: Could Samuel Dalembert’s brief career with the Canadian national team be over almost as soon as it started? The Philadelphia 76ers centre is no longer with the senior men’s side at the Olympic qualifying tournament in Athens. “He’s not on the team, I’ll leave it at that,” said head coach Leo Rautins after Canada’s heart-stopping comeback against Korea assured them of a quarter-final game against Croatia on Friday. Dalembert missed three of Canada’s five tune-up games due to problems with his hip this summer and struggled badly in the opening game against Slovenia on Tuesday, shooting just 1-of-8 from the floor and grabbing only four rebounds.
