The Scoop:He's been playing more power forward in training camp, which actually hurts his chances for regular minutes. Smith will have to stay healthy after suffering multiple serious injuries in his career.
The Scoop:He's likely going to start at center for the Knicks this season. They have some weaknesses on the perimeter, so there are going to be a lot of shot-blocking chances for Dalembert in the middle. While he's certainly an alluring target in the later rounds, he's been in doghouses more than Snoopy, which could send him to a bench role in a hurry.
The Scoop:He basically had no chance to sign with the Pelicans, especially after the Omer Asik trade. The Knicks have seen Cole Aldrich play well this summer, so those two will likely compete for minutes behind Samuel Dalembert.
