Rumor: Rockets to trade Asik next week, possibly to the Cavs?
According to a report, the Rockets are set to trade Omer Asik next week, and the Cavaliers could be their buyer.
The Omer Asik trade drama could finally be nearing an end.
Financially, an Asik-for-Varejao swap works as Asik is making $8.3 million this season and Varejao is making right at $9 million. Asik is signed through the 2015 season, while Varejao's deal isn't guaranteed for next season.
Other teams linked to Asik recently have been the 76ers, the Pelicans, the Trail Blazers and the Celtics.
Asik hasn't played in Houston's last four games because of an "injury," but is averaging 4.4 points and 6.8 rebounds in 17 games this season.
