Chicago fans aren't really surprised by this, rumors are a few teams were really looking at offering him a package like this. Wouldn't be surprised to Bulls decide to match and try to trade him later on before the 11 mil per starts. Best case is a sign and trade for lee or lowry.

There's more to the game than just offense, Asik is already one of the best defensive centers in both the post and pick and roll. Teams are also banking on his potential so he can be atleast respectable on offense.

This. A lot of the others in this thread are ignorant

As you said, if the Rockets or whoever signs him can develop him offensively, he'd be a respectable Center in the league. He's still young and is already one of the better defensive bigs in the NBA (best kept secret: he's better defensively than Noah)

As a Rockets fan, I love this move and I hope this happens. The Rockets have been desperate for a legit 7-footer since Yao went down and to get a young, defensive-minded 7-footer locked up for four years is worth spending a little extra. Especially when you consider the Rockets have one of the best cap situations in the NBA.

I think it could likely be a sign and trade. The Bulls have shown a lot of interest in Courtney Lee in the past. Could it be a swap of the two RFAs? Or what about Kevin Martin? If I had to put money on it, I'd say it's a Lee/Asik swap.

Kaman is a piece of **** and provides no value on the defensive end, which is what the Rockets need. It's also obvious that the team is trying to develop a young core, so Kaman wouldn't really help that whatsoever. Also, the Rockets have the inside track to bringing back Camby.

Lowry is a top 10 pg with a cheap contract you are delusional if you think you have a shot in hell of getting him 4 Asik via trade. Well overpay at 11mill per year before that ever happens I can assure you. I mean at least try and be realistic about any potential trade.

Ugh, your statistical analysis is baffling. Compare the advanced stats of Turiaf and Asik.

lol @ Key words. You think people are saying hes a good defender because he can only guard his position? Does the term DEFENSIVE ANCHOR mean anything to you?

The extent to which he helps the Bulls off the bench and how little the team drops off with him in the lineup hints at tremendous defensive influence. You can try to discount it all you want but studies have hinted that a bench player is more likely to play better as a starter than he does off the bench. Think Gortat.

07-01-2012, 01:40 AM
I can't believe all the people that are so ignorant of Asik's true value. He is the defensive force in the middle for the bulls, not Noah. Unlike Noah, Asik defends the post extremely well and does not get eaten up one on one on the block. I think the bulls should try and unload Noah if possible and keep Asik in the fold as it would best serve their defense and team going forward.

It is just laughable that people are looking at his rebounds and points as justification for why he is not worth 8 million when in reality his synergy numbers more than support it.

Asik's per 48 stats are nice...too bad he only played 10-15 a game. Don't know how he's gonna get all that playing time with all those bigs down in Houston. But glad he's gonna get some cash. The Turkish hammer and asik and destroy is pretty darn impressive on D. But has the worst butterfingers in the league. And can't shoot a lick on the free throws especially when the bulls needed him to hit those against Philly in the playoffs.

ehh. noah gets eaten up alive when he tries to help out his teammate(boozer mainly) Asik isnt in the floor with boozer that much, so he doesnt get exposed that often. Asik is usually in the floor with Taj, who doesnt really need that much help on the defensive end

im not some expert, but i feel like a lot of you guys are missing the point.... we know how desperate houston has been for height. They want young height or elite height.... kaman is neither. he's old and decent offensively. Asik is young, raw as *****, and has incredible defensive potential (once he gets the petty fouling under control)

comparing asik to r turiaf is absolutely INSANE. turiaf has no potential. asik does.

I disagree with this. Where Noah truly gets abused is against the post up. He is a great help defender and Boozer certainly appreciates that.

Noah being unable to defend his check on the block has nothing to do with helping out Boozer. We are looking strictly at one one post defense here. Asik truly shines overall as the most complete defender between him and Noah. Sure his sample size is small but he is playing anything but garbage minutes in games. Yes his offense needs a lot of work but I would much rather have Asik in the middle for 8 million than Noah for 11.3 million.

This guy averages around 13-14 minutes a game... can someone explain to me how he is ever playing against a starting 5... not trying to be a dick but what... maybe 2-3 minutes a game at the most...

again... i think he is a good role player but $8 million is terrible value for a guy who turns 26 in 3 days... at least with a guy like DeAndre Jordan he will only be 26 turning 27 when his contract ends.

Come on man. Most irrelevant? Who won the title last year backed up by a powerful 2-3 zone with Tyson Chnadler in the middle? I am sorry but you are very far off the ball if you think the post is irrelevant and especially from a defensive stand point. That cant be the case when you have some of the most talented centers in the west in Bynum, Gasol, Cousins, Jefferson etc. It is crucial that you find players that can protect the rim and also defend some of the players I Just listed if your team hopes to be successful. Lebron was embarrassed in the finals when he went up against a good defensive team anchored by an elite defensive center.

mRc08
07-01-2012, 02:00 AM

Yes his offense needs a lot of work but I would much rather have Asik in the middle for 8 million than Noah for 11.3 million.

That's the problem though. Once asik has to get outside the paint, he tends to get in foul trouble and fast. Asik is superior in defending the paint, but not every play goes through it. Thibs isn't the type of coach that plays a certain guy because he has the bigger contract, he plays the guy that will help him win. If he needs a stop against a penetrating team asik is in the game.

That cant be the case when you have some of the most talented centers in the west in Bynum, Gasol, Cousins, Jefferson etc. It is crucial that you find players that can protect the rim and also defend some of the players I Just listed if your team hopes to be successful. Lebron was embarrassed in the finals when he went up against a good defensive team anchored by an elite defensive center.

Dallas's defense was awesome in the finals... no doubt about it... but that isn't what won the series... go back and look at some of those shooting percentages for Dallas... absolutely off the charts...

Miami scored more than enough points to win that series... it was their D that failed to stop an unbelievable shooting performance by Dallas...

People need to get over the Dallas-Miami series... it was the perfect storm (ie Detroit 2004).

As for Asik, again it is about value and $8 million is a joke quite frankly...

It is gonna be fun to watch the Houston fiasco unfold...

Hopefully Bulls can work out a S&T for one of their guards (Lee, Lamb, or Martin)

he's a pretty good actor he falls to the floor with such authority. Good for the Rockets but that's too expensive for a B-list actor

Asik is a luxury, not a necessity. People need to realize this and if we can get a S and T for Lee then we more than make up for his loss in my opinion.

he was your best defensive big against miami. and insurance for an injury prone front court.

Which is why I think the Bulls will match if the offer is 8 million(still dont know if they offered that or not).

I think most would agree this is simply more than he is worth. 5 or maybe even 6, but like others have said, 8 mil a year seems like desperation. I don't think the bulls are matching this.

But that's the point. He's a RFA, so you HAVE to overpay to get him. If it was just 5 mil a year I'm sure Chicago would be willing to math no problem.

And for the people thinking they'll S&T him for lee, it wot happen. For the first part both are RFA so I don't even know of that's possible, but secondly we are overpaying to pry him away. We'd rather give up the cap space (most cap in the league) than talente players in a trade
