Rockets Want For Two First Rounders For Asik

We’ve heard that the Rockets’ asking price for center Omer Asik is high, but Houston may be looking for more than anyone expected.  General Manager Daryl Morey & Co. are seeking two first-round selections in exchange for the disgruntled big man, according to Alan Hahn of MSG Network (Sulia link).

Of course, that request makes it nearly impossible for the Knicks to land Asik as they cannot trade a first-round pick in any draft before 2018.  The Blazers have engaged the Rockets in talks for Asik, but the Bulls apparently aren’t interested in breaking the bank for him.  The Pelicans and Hawks are also among the clubs that could have interest.
