The Houston Rockets have been very active in trade negotiations over the last few weeks and they are wasting no time in courting free agents. General manager Daryl Morey is set to meet with free agent big man Omer Asik on Sunday.
Meeting w/Omer Asik in a few minutes -- tell him how much you want him to be in Houston! He will see your msg live - include #Asik2Houston— Daryl Morey (@dmorey) July 1, 2012
Asik played in 66 games with the Chicago Bulls in 2012 and finished with averages of 3.1 points and 5.3 rebounds per game. At 7-foot, 255 pounds Asik has the size to provide quality minutes at the center position in the NBA and should have a number of interested teams for his services this offseason.
