HOUSTON (AP) – Chicago Bulls restricted free-agent center Omer Asik has agreed to a three-year, $25 million deal with the Houston Rockets, according to a person with direct knowledge of the deal.

 

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal hasn’t been officially announced. Free agents cannot sign new contracts until July 11 and because the 7-foot Asik is restricted, the Bulls have three days to decide whether to match Houston’s offer or let him go.

 

The Rockets have made finding a big man a priority since injury-plagued Yao Ming retired last summer. Houston was rumored to be collecting draft picks to package in an offer to Orlando for Dwight Howard, but the team ended up using its three draft picks on Thursday night.
