Potential Trade Scenarios, Packages and Landing Spots for Omer Asik

For the second time this year, Houston Rockets center Omer Asik has reportedly asked for a trade, per Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the Rockets have had talks with multiple teams about moving Asik, although they may not be engaged in talks right now.

Is it too early to give up on finding a fit for Asik? Possibly, but the initial returns on Dwight Howard and Asik playing together have been disastrous.

According to NBA.com's stats site, Howard and Asik have shared the floor for 93 minutes, and the Rockets have posted a net rating of minus-15.3 during that time. The Asik-Howard pairing has posted the lowest offensive rating (87.3) of any of Houston's two-man pairings that have played over 15 minutes.

Howard and Asik playing together hasn't yielded mixed results, or been a little bumpyit's been downright awful.

With Asik frustrated by his playing time and head coach Kevin McHale looking for the right lineups, it may only be a matter of time before the Rockets have to break down and trade Asik away.
