Omar Asik Anybody!
 
Rockets seem pretty keen on keeping this guy and his contract is ridiculously back loaded, but he'd be a upgrade over Splitter.

Bonner + Nando/Patty/Joseph + this years first pick/2nd rounder = Omar.

That would give both teams they desperately need. Dreaming I know, but Omar seems pretty adamant he wont play backup.

Houston is our Interstate 10 rival and they just landed a big fish. I wouldn't gut my bench and give them future considerations just to help them out and satisfy Omar. Let them figure it out.

Not gonna happen, we don't have anything they want besides Leonard or Parker. Unless they take Splitter, the numbers don't match. Not sure that they would want him unless they run pick and rolls all day with him and Harden, don't think Howard would want it. Also, I'm not sure SA does it, Splitter has become integeral in our defense and offense. Hell, the Spurs allowed only like 93 pts per 100 possessions with him and Tim on floor, with somebody else with Tim they allowed somewhere around 101 per 100 possessions. Looking at the per 36 numbers and shooting percentages, Splitter is the better player offensively, Asik is better defender by a little, and a significantly better board man. One thought though, there was nobody else on Houston to compete for boards, Splitter has one of the greatest defensive rebounders ever and Kawhi the freak.

Never going to happen, not even worth thinking of.

Houston won't send him eventhough we would want him.

And moreover his absurd contract puts us above luxury tax next year.

TOO EXPENSIVE.

If and that is big IF because I sense that Houston will keep Asik despite his numerous discomfort playing behind Howard..... I see Asik leaving to an Eastern Team.

As a player. Sure. He is a good all around big man. As a contract, HELL NO

The cap hit is only $8M and change both years. That doesn't even get the Spurs TO the salary cap (with some quick math, hoopshype salaries and Splitter/manu/$5M to be spent this year).
The salary to be paid is $15M.

And just to be clear, it's Omer.

Actually, Bonner might be on their radar. An outside shooting 4 would fit right in.
And they can't take Splitter until December(?), when you can trade a newly signed player.
