Houston (CBS HOUSTON) – Omer Asik knew that the when Dwight Howard made the decision to come to Houston he could be the odd man out. And after only playing four minutes in an overtime loss Wednesday night against the 76ers, Asik has formally asked for a trade.

CBS Sports is reporting that while no trade his in the works, one would probably happen in months not days.

Asik started every game for the Rockets last season but Kevin McHale has pushed for a smaller lineup most of the young season and there hasn’t been much room for the big man.

Asik, 27, is averaging 5.6 points a game with 8.1 rebounds.
