Sounds like the Bulls are really high on this guy.
Coach Tom Thibodeau praised Asik after the game, and management has given no indications it plans to trade him.
Although the Bulls have engaged in exploratory talks to upgrade at shooting guard, an Asik-for-Lee swap isn't likely to happen
Though the primary objective is to beat the long odds to land Anthony, Morey also has continued dialogue with Nuggets executive vice president Masai Ujuri in hopes to have a head start toward a deal for Nene, the Nuggets' center who like Anthony can opt out of his contract after the season.
Morey has been willing to trade for Anthony, even without Anthony signing a contract extension, in hopes Anthony would relent to take an extension offer before the new collective bargaining agreement. And further, that a Rockets postseason run would influence Anthony to stay or that if he insisted on moving in free agency, the Rockets could benefit from a sign-and-trade deal.
Any deal with the Nuggets would center around second-year forward Jordan Hill, who has been on the edge of the Rockets rotation, a draft pick, and the potential cost-savings with a combination of expiring contracts of Yao, Shane Battier and Jared Jeffries.
Cant wait until this is all over and we know who will the a Rocket in March....IN MOREY WE TRUST....i hope :)
