New Orleans Pelicans should consider trading Omer Asik with their 6th draft pick

Omer Asik's contract is atrocious and lasts until 2020, so if an opportunity to move on from it comes around, the Pelicans need to take it.

Rockets' Asik fails on free throw attempt

The Houston Rockets are in a bit of a slump on a two-game losing skid, and center Omer Asik was way off-target on Tuesday night against the Brooklyn Nets. Asik is a 60 percent career free throw shooter, but he may have had his poorest attempt early in the second quarter when he tossed up an airball. But it's not the worst we've seen this season. San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker...
