The Houston Rockets have proposed a trade for Omer Asik. They want to get it done by the 19th, which is in three days. It is expected to be a three-way trade that involves Thaddeus Young from the 76ers.
Is it a smart move to trade Asik who refused to be traded in the off-season? Yes it is. Asik doesn't really fit in with the Rockets. He is like the kid at lunch that nobody wants to sit with. Asik is a great basketball player but he doesn't fit in with the offense that Houston runs.
Since bringing Dwight to Houston, Asik hasn't been a big factor for the Rockets. Sending Asik somewhere else makes perfect sense. It's something that he should have done in the first place.
