Re: Omer Asik and Houston agree to 3 year 25 million deal

Smart contract if the final year is actually 15 mil.

I wasn't aware that you could backload a contract like that. Pretty sure that didn't use to be allowed, since it could lead to all sorts of chicanery.

I'm a big Asik fan. I think he has starter level skills. Great signing by Houston.

Gives them a cheap first 2 years, and then in his final year he's a huge expiring which more often than not can be used as an asset.

Should be outlawed, but whatever.

Hes not a decent starter. Your opinion of big men is usually pretty terrible.

Is he restricted? Can Bulls match?

So Bulls fans, you think that's getting matched?

They won't. Omer Asik is not that good.

That's the pertinent question. And they still have Gibson to pay as well next year.

Not sure, I hope we match. Use him as a massive expiring that final year.

I hope they dont match. Asik is a pain in the ass. Go West young man.

there must be some random ass advanced stats saying this is a good idea.

contract structuring makes it a better deal. i guess that's the new cba being put to use.

Re: Omer Asik and Houston agree to 3 year 25 million deal

am I missing something here? Why is a 25yr center averaging 3 and 5 getting 8 mil a year?
A lot of people think he's the next Marcin Gortat, ready to explode given the minutes.
