Reports: Houston calls off trade talks entirely with Omer Asik

Rockets general manager Daryl Morey wants what he wants for Omer Asik and since he couldn't get it, he's taking his ball and going home. Houston called off trade talks entirely on Thursday, according to multiple reports.

So Happy Holidays to Omer Asik. Stuck in Houston in a situation he doesn't want because Houston overpaid with a $15 million poison pill in the third year (non-cap impactful) in order to sign him, then signed a better player at his position.

The question now is whether Houston will be able to get anything for Asik at the deadline and how Asik will respond to his situation. You have to think he and his agent are livid after Morey leaked heavily that a deal would be done by Thursday.

If Morey's going to resolve this situation, he may just have to take less than what he wants in return. That's not his M.O., but this situtations seems unique.

Either way, Asik's stuck in Houston for a while.
