The Rockets have announced the signing of Omer Asik on NBA.com. As almost an afterthought, at the very bottom of the article is this little tidbit.
In a non-related move, the Rockets also announced that the team has waived guard E’Twaun Moore. I feel bad for E'Twaun. Everything seemed to be going his way. He was playing very well in Summer League and had expressed his...
"Linsanity" took everyone by storm last season -- Jeremy Lin included.
Say what you want about Lin's basketball potential, but the Harvard product is one of the more grounded players in the NBA. So, despite his controversial exit from New York, which was the subject of much debate, he's willing to look back candidly at what has been a crazy year.
The Rockets have been at the front of the offseason. Whether it was getting involved in Dwight Howard rumors or going after and signing Jeremy Lin, you cannot fault Daryl Morey for going out there and being active. Houston has been a middle of the Western Conference team for the better part of a decade. Always good enough to compete for a Playoff spot, never quite good enough to...
Linsanity was huge because Jeremy Lin was balling out. There may have been a perfect storm in play, he may not ever be able to specifically duplicate that run, and history may tell us that Mike D'Antoni had a bigger hand in orchestrating the whole affair than anybody's ever given him credit for. But Jeremy Lin is still a good player. Maybe not an All Star, but certainly not...
What is it with the Rockets offering three years and $25 million to players? OK, so the NBA's rules and pay structure obviously have something to do with the symmetrical numbers. But it's still a little interesting that, just after nabbing Jeremy Lin from the Knicks when New York declined to match, the Rockets may be picking up another player whose former team won't match...
We’ve already outlined that Knicks owner James Dolan felt that he was deceived and betrayed by Jeremy Lin. So it shouldn’t surprise you that there is yet another example of just how personal the Knicks took Jeremy Lin signing that poison pill offer sheet.
In the Houston Chronicle’s behind the scenes look at how the deal went down, they describe every decision the Rockets made...
The Houston Rockets finally have a center again.
The Chicago Bulls will not match Houston's three-year, $25 million offer sheet on Omer Asik, a person with direct knowledge of the decision said Tuesday on condition of anonymity because Chicago had not officially announced the move.
Asik averaged 3.1 points, 5.3 rebounds and one block in 66 games last season. He helped Turkey...
