Rockets center Omer Asik, he of the $8 million a year contract and limited minutes behind Dwight Howard, was the most mentioned player on HoopsHype's trade rumors page in the last two weeks. Right behind him, but not particularly close, were Raptors guard Kyle Lowry, Celtics forward Brandon Bass, Cavs guard Dion Waiters and Lakers big man Pau Gasol, a trade rumor fixture for the past three years.
