Omer Asik Reportedly Signs 3-Year, $25 Million Offer Sheet With Rockets

The pressure is on the Chicago Bulls if they want to keep their dominant bench unit intact after the Houston Rockets have reportedly signed restricted free agent center Omer Asik to a three-year, $25 million offer sheet, according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.

Asik combined with Taj Gibson to form the best defensive big-man tandem in the league. Asik, who turns 26 on Wednesday, averaged 3.1 points, 5.3 rebounds and a block in 14 minutes per game. He had been the subject of numerous trade rumors over the past two years because a defensive-stopper type center is always in demand, and his talents have largely been wasted backing up Joakim Noah.
