we have a roster discussion thread already talking about this

Since this seems like an actual rumor that stands on its own with some credibility, we can leave it as its own thread discussion. I see that it's already being discussed in detail in the roster thread, but there are enough posts to follow here that the posts from each thread would get out of order if merged.
Guys we are all just looking at this deal for right now and if he helps or hurts our chances at the draft. I think Sam isn't putting all our eggs into one basket and thinking what if the draft avenue doesn't work out for us where do we go from there. Well this trade makes a lot of sense for two reasons. 1. It takes a year of Thad's salary off the books and 2. in 14-15 we'd have a huge 15 million dollar expiring contract in Asik. That type of contract for with a player like Asik means he would be a huge bargaining chip.
I can be wrong about the details of Asik's contract maybe bholly can correct me but I do believe it counts as a 15 million dollar expiring in his final season.
