Unhappy Omer Asik Switching Agents


Disgruntled Houston Rockets center Omer Asik is switching from Andy Miller, and aligning himself with the powerful Arn Tellem of Wasserman Media Group, as he seeks a way out of H-Town. Per CBS Sports: “Asik’s decision to change agents was first reported on Twitter by the Turkish basketball site Superbasket.org. He must submit paperwork to the National Basketball Players Association to formalize the change, and then Tellem must wait 10 days before commencing representation. Asik has been unhappy with his role in Houston since the Rockets signed Dwight Howard as a free agent this past summer. He has made a formal trade request, and Rockets GM Daryl Morey has been ramping up his efforts to trade him. Asik was lured away from the Bulls as a restricted free agent in 2012 with a three-year, $25 million deal. The actual payout on the third year of the deal next season is $15 million, which could be a deterrent to consummating a deal.”

    Kind of hard to get traded when you black ball yourself Asik. Aka quitting on your team.

    It’s a shame they can’t coexist, they are very similar in the way they play and what they bring to the court. one would have to be able to shoot and stretch the floor to free up the post for the other.

    why can’t this guy be a team player? he’s getting paid, they’re winning, why can’t he just smile and play hard when given minutes? it’s not like he has something to prove, he has already proven that he can be a contributor.

    can’t get the attitude of some of this players.

    it’s not his fault they can’t trade him… it’s cos his contract is backloaded and he’s paid 15M next yr…. who would want to pay that??!!
