Rick Carlisle rips into Samuel Dalembert.

Dallas dropped it’s first preseason game last night against New Orleans.

It’s only preseason but Rick Carlisle is not pleased with the work ethic of his newly acquired center Samuel Dalembert.

“I just told him in front of the whole team that he’s got to keep working,” said Carlisle, who mentioned Dalembert’s conditioning issues to the media without a question being asked about the center. “We need his minutes. They’re going to be very important to us. He’s a factor. When he’s in shape, he’s a factor as a rim protector and rebounder, and he gives you a big, active, athletic body in there.”

Dalembert had 4 turnovers in 11 minutes of action in his Mavs debut.
