NBA Trade Rumors: Cavaliers reportedly not interested in Omer Asik trade

New, comments

So much for the Omer Asik to the Cavs trade rumor...

A couple of nights ago, David Aldridge reported that the Cleveland Cavaliers and Houston Rockets might work out a deal centered around swapping Anderson Varejao and Omer Asik. We discussed that rumor extensively on a separate thread and it seemed that many Cavs fans were not particularly interested in that kind of a trade.

Lucky for them, it appears that the Cavs are not interested either. Jason Lloyd from the Akron Beacon Journal tweeted before the Cavs-Magic game that his source doesn't think the Cavs want to do that.

It's pretty clear that the Rockets are going to trade Asik. But if Jason's sources are correct (and they often are), he won't end up in Wine and Gold. So that rumor was fun while it lasted.
