New Orleans in three-team trade to acquire center Omer Asik and small ... - The Times-Picayune
Hope so but prob not "If Jrue Holiday, Omer Asik, and Anthony Davis stay healthy, will the Pelicans make the playoffs?"
Jeremy Lin could be in Carmelo Anthony’s way once again. The Houston Rockets, long linked as a potential destination for Anthony, began their efforts to clear enough money from under their salary cap to make a run at a max player by agreeing to send Omer Asik to the New Orleans Pelicans for a 2015 first-round pick. Now, in order to sign Anthony when the free agency period opens on July 1, the Rockets will need to rid themselves of Lin, who went to Houston, partly because of Anthony’s reported dissatisfaction with the “Linsanity” craze that swept New York while Anthony was injured in 2012. Before Lin signed a three-year, $25 million deal with the Rockets, it was nearly impossible to believe the Knicks would allow the biggest phenomenon in the NBA to leave town, but Anthony’s supposed unhappiness sharing the spotlight with Lin, and the duo’s clashing styles on the court, allowed the unthinkable to occur. While negotiations were ongoing in 2012, Anthony remarked: “It’s up to the organization ...

Huge NBA trade between the Knicks and the Mavericks. Dallas gets: C Tyson Chandler G Raymond Felton Knicks get: G Jose Calderon C Shane Dalembert G Shane Larkin G Wayne Ellington 2nd Round Draft Pick (34th pick) 2nd Round Draft Pick (51st pick) This leaves Dallas with still enough cap space to add a max contract player, which may signal an effort to sign Carmelo Anthony, and adding a favorite teammate of Anthony's in Chandler is certainly an attempt to persuade him to come the Mavs. Also, the Houston Rockets and New Orleans Pelicans have made a salary dump move, the deal includes: Pelicans get: C Omer Asik $1.5 million Rockets get: 2015 First Round Draft Pick (protected) This move is part of the Rocket's plan to clear cap space for a max deal, trying to acquire Carmelo Anthony or even Lebron James if he does not resign with the Heat.
