Omer Asik ready to clean up in return to starting role
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Last season was a rough one for Omer Asik, who had to deal with returning to a reserve role after really shining as a starter the previous year. He should be much happier with his role this season, as the Pelicans acquired him this offseason with the intention of installing him as the starting center.

The Pelicans should have a fearsome frontcourt with Asik starting next to Anthony Davis, and Davis' presence should free Asik up to do the kind of work he excels at. Asik isn't a great offensive player, but he can be a dominant offensive rebounder, and should have many chances to clean up the boards with teams keying in on Davis offensively. Among players who have logged at least 5,000 minutes in the NBA, Asik is 22nd all-time in offensive rebounding percentage.

Asik had trouble staying healthy last season, but that was the first time he had ever missed a regular-season game in his career, so we can probably write that off as a fluke. He averaged a double-double with 1.1 blocks per game in 30.0 minutes per game two years ago, and should be capable of similar production as he returns to a starting role.

Asik should be viewed as a starting Fantasy option this season, though he may not have the upside of some other younger centers at this point.

Report: Rockets sending Omer Asik to New Orleans
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Pelicans and Rockets have agreed to a deal to send center Omer Asik to New Orleans in exchange for a protected first-round pick in 2015, Yahoo.com reported Wednesday.

Asik is coming off a disappointing season, as injuries and an inconsistent role forced him into a career-low in minutes played. He missed 34 games for the Rockets, after appearing in each regular season game in the first three seasons of his career. Asik averaged just 5.8 points and 7.9 rebounds, though he did so in 20.2 minutes per game, with 29 of his appearances coming as a reserve.

Asik will likely serve as the Pelicans' starter at center, a position they filled last year with Greg Stiemsma, Alexis Ajinca and Jason Smith. The deal cannot be finalized until after Thursday's draft.
