The Houston Rockets have said they don’t plan to trade Omer Asik, so it seems a little odd that they’re ‘as active as anybody’ in regards to the upcoming NBA trade deadline – this according to SportingNews.
Of course, being active doesn’t mean the Rockets are necessarily involved in trading Asik, but he is one of their biggest (if not the biggest) trade asset and there are plenty of teams interested in him, despite his price tag.
Regardless, potential Asik trade or not, the Rockets are doing what they can to make some time of move.
Still, Morey has been as active as any GM in the league, and is eager to bolster Houston’s power forward spot, where second-year man Terrence Jones has been the starter.
Morey has made a deal at the deadline since he’s held the the general manager position with the Rockets, so, if history repeats itself, we’ll see at least one more before the clock strikes on the 2014 NBA trade deadline.
In addition to a power forward, it’s been rumored (for weeks) the Rockets are also interested in adding a perimeter threat.
