Why? Do you think he gets more than $9-$10 million? He's a one way player. Yes he's elite at the one way he plays, but he's still one way and he's accumulated a lot of baggage in Houston. There are definite questions about his attitude to the point that I wonder how he'd like the "starting" role the Pels would have for him. On top of that, he couldn't stop Aldridge from knocking his team out of the playoffs. I'd say his reputation has taken a bit of a hit since his last 3/$24 deal. At the very least it hasn't improved and he'll be 3 years older. As long as the team moves Gordon, I don't see why Asik wouldn't be a 2015 FA target.
I was talking about trading Gordon for Asik. That's a pipe dream. Image: http://cdn.ebaumsworld.com/mediaFiles/picture/730195/80614259.jpg
