According to a report courtesy Pro Basketball Talk via Alan Hahn of the MSG Network, the Houston Rockets have set the asking price for disgruntled center Omer Asik a tad bit high.

We reported recently that a rival GM considered the Rockets asking price to be on the delusional side and it seems he wasn’t lying if this report is accurate.

It’s December, so the NBA trade market heats up. #Knicks, like others, are shopping, what’s available?

Not much.

The name that is dominating the early rumors is Omer Asik of the Rockets. The disgruntled center can be had, but Houston isn’t just giving him away.

In fact, the Rockets are setting the market high for Asik, with a demand of two first round picks in any deal.

My guess is the Rockets are just setting the bar really high to get a good return for a very productive center, because there’s no way he’s worth two first-round picks in this lifetime or the next.
