Omer Asik has returned to Rockets practice and is expected to be available for tonight’s game with the Boston Celtics, but that doesn’t mean he’ll survive the season in Houston.
David Weiner (aka BimaThug) joins Dave Hardisty on the podcast to talk about the cap and salary impact of an Omer Asik trade. They also discuss the myriad possibilities around the league, both where Asik would be a fit and trade targets that would make sense for Daryl Morey and company. The possibility of the Rockets having significant cap room in 2015 could still play a key role in what the Rockets do with Asik.
Though Asik dominates the discussion, the two also talk about the Rockets’ 7-4 start — what’s working and what’s not — and the early hot shooting from Jeremy Lin.
