Trade For Asik?

I have an idea for you Blazers fans!!

If Dwight Howard signs with the Houston Rockets, Houston center Omer Asik will be on the trading block (if he isn’t already). Many Blazers fans want Asik, and why wouldn’t we? He’s TALL, young, can score, can rebound, and can play defense.

In this scenario, the fact that Howard lands in Houston is largely in part because of the Blazers trading for Thomas Robinson (see my article from yesterday) and picking up his contract. The Blazers did Houston a HUGE favor, and that can help Portland land Asik.

We’ll have to acquire Asik in a trade. My idea was that we send power forward J.J. Hickson (sign-and-trade) to land Asik. If we want to shed some cap space, we can package shooting guard Sasha Pavlovic as well.

What do you guys think? Let me know, and leave YOUR ideas in the comments!!

Until next time,

I have him going to either Houston or Dallas, but am strongly hoping for Houston…
