Look, we've had discussions about this in fanposts before, but if he truly does want out, this is our chance. Now that Howard has signed with Houston, they don't need to pay 8M for a backup center, esp when he will only play around 10-15 min a game. We need a promising young big, I like what Asik brings to the table. Ariza and a future pick for Asik, while adding players to make the money work. The Rockets are contenders, and having a guy like Ariza for defense is invaluable in the playoffs, especially when going up against guys like Durant and Kobe and the other great wings in the West. In the article it says that a sign and trade for J Smoove would be one of their options. Obviously we can't compete with that, so we just have to cross our fingers that the scenario mentioned doesn't happen, and hope ours does. This is a long shot, but man would this be awesome.
