MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Milwaukee Bucks are sure happy to see veteran center Samuel Dalembert.

The Bucks traded Jon Leuer, Jon Brockman and Shaun Livingston to the Rockets to get Dalembert. The two teams also traded draft picks, which Milwaukee used to get North Carolina forward John Henson.

General manager John Hammond says protecting the basket was a big problem for the Bucks, who went 31-35 last season and struggled after center Andrew Bogut was lost for the season with an ankle injury and eventually traded.

The 6-foot-11 Dalembert, known for his ability to block shots, says he welcomes the chance to come to Milwaukee where he gets to play for Scott Skiles, who is regarded as a defensive-oriented coach.
