The Rockets are one of several teams with dreams of trading for Dwight Howard. While he’s busy fucking around with his reputation and several franchises, the Rockets figured they’d get a serviceable big man in the meantime. Too bad for them, they paid Asik double what he’s worth to pry him away from the Bulls. Off the bench, he’s a great role player to come in and block shots, but as a potential starter you need someone that can at least catch the ball. A $25 million contract for a back-up center is going to hurt, especially when Dwight never comes.
