Cavs Reportedly ‘Not Interested’ in Omer Asik Trade
Trade rumors were swirling involving Omer Asik and Anderson Varejao this week, but the Cavaliers are “not interested in acquiring Asik,” according to Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal:
Varejao’s name surfaced this week in trade rumors involving the Houston Rockets’ Omer Asik, but a league source told me Friday the Cavs are not interested in acquiring Asik. With Andrew Bynum beginning to flourish, Asik and his $14.9 million salary for next season are not a fit on this team. Varejao’s ability to play both power forward and center makes him a far better fit.
Asik will be moved next week and if the Rockets need a third team to get involved, the Cavs would listen. But Asik won’t be coming to Cleveland.
