Omer Asik trade for Jamal Crawford possible

Is it possible for this trade with the Clippers and the Rockets?

Well YES.

Lets take a look why it could be done.

First is the Omer Asik is not happy in Space Town with the Dwightmare complete. It became the Asikmare now. Asik is not a happy camper. Also the Rockets would love to get rid of Omer Asik contract because of (2014-2015) price of $14,898,938 due to him. OUCH!!! And wouldn't be either in Clipper town either with DJ starting.

But would DJ be starting over Asik? Good Question?!?!



Second do the clippers need a BIG man backing up DJ. Answer is YES! Omer Asik would be a huge answer to that question and possible for the future if DJ doesn't improve in the offense or even defensive side of his game.



Third how do the Clips make that trade happen. Well if you look at the salaries of the two players this year you see

Omer Asik will make in (2013-2014) $5,225,000 but a cap hit of around $8,374,646

Jamal Crawford will make (2013-2014) $5,225,000 but a cap hit of around $5,450,000

Yes Crawford contract is more team friendly and Rockets could use a SF. The clips could ask for some cash or even a draft pick. Take advantage of the Rocket situation. Also could the Clips work Omer Asik contract more team friendly with a extension.



So it's possible
