NEW YORK – — With his starting job gone and his playing time slashed, Rockets center Omer Asik has asked to be traded, two individuals with knowledge of the request said Thursday.

Asik, who started every game after signing with the Rockets last season, came off the bench Wednesday in Philadelphia, but struggled. He played only four minutes and not at all in the second half. Asik has made his trade request within the past 48 hours, a person familiar with the conversations said.

The Rockets have no trade involving Asik in the works, with one individual saying a deal is more likely in months than in days.

Asik declined comment, referring questions to his agent, Andy Miller. Miller also would not comment on any trade request.

“I would say the situation is very frustrating right now and were trying to work through it,” Miller said. “For Omer, the objective has always been to continue to develop and grow as a player. That’s why we came to Houston in the first place. If that objective can’t be met, if we can’t get the right platform to grow and contribute as a player, it’s certainly frustrating.”

Wait till Millsap is available in Atlanta. Horford's been crying for a defensive center for some time now

Can't fault him but his finishing around the basket is still atrocious.

I am not sure butterfingers can be fixed.

do you blame him!?100 tuimes out of 100 you get Dwight, but you cannot keep a guy of Omer's quality happy with backup minutes, especially if they are as low as what Mcfail played him

Any news on possible landing spot of Omer Asik?

Hope it is not Lamarcus.
