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.
