Everyone is aware that general manager Daryl Morey is ready to part ways with the Turkish big man, who has become rather disgruntled due to his role on the team (i.e. sitting behind Dwight Howard). But he's still a member of the Houston organization.
Well, a few things, and we'll go over those in a second.
But first, it's important to note that Asik is actively preparing for an upcoming trade. That much was made clear when, as reported by CBS Sports' Ken Berger, he decided to switch agents from Andy Miller to Arn Tellem of Wasserman Media Group, a much more powerful agent in the NBA world.
In fact, Tellem—and Wasserman Media Group in general—comes in atop HoopsHype's rankings of the top agents in the sport.
But now, back to the topic at hand. Asik hasn't been traded for a lot of reasons, and it's about more than rival general managers viewing the asking price as "delusional," per Berger.
