Trading Block: Omer Asik


Omer Asik is on the trade block. After starting at center for the Pelicans and Rockets the past few seasons, Asik has missed a significant amount of time with Crohn’s disease, and DeMarcus Cousins has been thriving alongside Anthony Davis at the five.

Any team that wants a rim protector or long big man should make a move for Asik. He could be acquired for just about anyone right now, and has some skills that just aren’t teachable. Here are the best trades for Asik:
