Rumor: Dampier considering Houston and Milwaukee?

Erick Dampier is considering Houston and Milwaukee, two sources close to the situation have told FanHouse.
 
 
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: He’s cheap insurance. Like Geico. Or All-State.

The Houston Rockets and Milwaukee Bucks both have star centers on the mend, so signing veteran big man Erick Dampier makes sense.

Ideally, Dampier would serve as a bench piece. He’d grab rebounds. Block a few shots. And give Yao Ming and Andrew Bogut a nice break to avoid further injuries.

 
For that reason alone, Dampier’s worth a one or two year contract.

But suppose Yao or Bogut gets hurt –something that isn’t out of the realm of possibilities. Dampier could step in, log major minutes, and provide a defensive presence down the middle.

Bottom line: Dampier would fit nicely in Houston or Milwaukee.
