The veteran big man says joining his current opponent over the summer as an unrestricted free agent could be an appealing option, according to Chris Tomasson of Fox Sports Florida.
If you can't beat 'em, join 'em. That's what Dalembert might be thinking.
"The Heat will be definitely an option,’’ Dalembert said after Milwaukee's 23-point loss in Game 1. "It’s up to them and seeing what’s going to be out there. But at this point you want to be with a contending team. You don’t want to go backwards, so you want to chase that promised land."
Though the Bucks are slowly improving, this first-round series against Miami should remind the franchise just how far away "the promised land" is.
Dalembert turns 32 next month, so he's running out of time to really contribute on a championship team, which Miami could presumably be next season.
The Heat reportedly pursued Dalembert last time he was a free agent, before the 2011-12 season, but he ultimately signed a two-year, $13.7 million deal with the Houston Rockets. The Bucks then acquired him by trade during the offseason to bolster their frontcourt following the trade of longtime center Andrew Bogut.
