REPORT: Omer Asik Traded To New Orleans For Pick
HOUSTON (CBS HOUSTON) – According to Yahoo Sports Adrian Worjnarowski the Houston Rockets have agreed to trade Center Omer Asik to the New Orleans Pelicans for a future first round pick.
Asik is the first piece of the puzzle in removing cap space for the Rockets as they try to make a play for Carmelo Anthony or Lebron James this summer. Both big time players opted out of their contracts for the upcoming season to see what options they have.
Asik was said to have requested a trade earlier in the ’13-’14 season after he lost playing time with the addition of Dwight Howard.
