Pelicans reach five-year deal with C Omer Asik
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

The Pelicans continued to spend money to maintain a dominant center position, reaching a five-year, $58 million deal with reserve Omer Asik, per the New Orleans Times-Picayune, one day after signing All-Star big man Anthony Davis to a $145 million extension. 

Asik, who averaged 9.8 rebounds off the bench last season, is a key component of the Pelicans' second unit and the team wanted him back in the fold. Asik will make $11.1 million over the course of the deal, with only the first four years guaranteed. 

Asik registered 7.3 points with New Orleans last season.

Pelicans center Omer Asik not willing to discuss free agency
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

With Pelicans center Omer Asik set to become a free agent in the offseason, Asik said it's too early to speculate on where he might end up, reports The Times-Picayune.

"It's not the time to talk about it right now," Asik said. "But I think there is good stuff going on here. It's a young team and the future is good."

Asik played in 76 games for the Pelicans this season and averaged 7.3 points, 9.8 rebounds and 0.7 blocks.

"As far as Omer, he's a huge part of what we do," former Pelicans coach Monty Williams said during his season-ending news conference last week. "If you look at our defensive numbers from last year to this year, we improved in a number of categories and Omer was a huge part of that."
