5 Best Omer Asik Trade Options for Houston Rockets

After a great season last year as the defensive anchor and catalyst to the Houston Rockets' transition based attack, Omer Asik's future with the Houston Rockets is now in limbo with Dwight Howard in town.

As of right now, it looks like the Rockets are going to give it a shot with Asik, but the relationship will likely remain tenuous for the time being.

For that to change, Asik will need to establish that he can coexist in the same frontcourt as Howard and that he won't become a problem in the locker room with a decreased role and less minutes.

However, even if the sailing is smooth with Asik early on, Rockets general manager Daryl Morey may see the window for a championship open up and try to acquire a superstar or simply find a better fit.

By design, the Rockets have plenty of options to explore. If trading Asik looks like the best move, there should be no shortage of suitors for the talented 27-year-old big man.
