One of the more important dates of the season has passed.
On Dec. 15, nearly all free agents who were signed this offseason became available to trade. This is a big deal for a few teams, but it's probably most significant for the Houston Rockets.
The Rockets are still looking to find a trade partner in order to move disgruntled big man Omer Asik, and now the window is as open as it's ever going to be; nearly every player in the league is technically available now.
In this version of "buy or sell," we'll check in on Asik and the logistics of a potential deal. We'll also touch on another familiar name in NBA rumor mills in Zach Randolph, break down the benefits of a Pau Gasol trade for the Los Angeles Lakers and take a glance at a couple of guards who could be changing addresses soon.
