Realistic (I think) Trade for Asik

Nets:

Rockets:

  • Gain - Ersan Ilyasova + Bucks 2014 1st Round Pick (top ten protected for 3 years, devolves to 2 2nd Rounders on third year if not claimed) + Bucks 2014 2nd Round Pick
  • Lose - Omer Asik

Bucks:

  • Gain - Brook Lopez
  • Lose - Ersan Ilyasova + Bucks 2014 1st Round Pick (top ten protected for 3 years, devolves to 2 2nd Rounders on third year if not claimed) + Bucks 2014 2nd Round Pick

*Personally, I don't like trading Brook, I don't think his skillset nor his attitude is in anyway soft, or bad for this organization, however, I think we need to look at the very realistic possibility that Brook Lopez is our Yao Ming--terrific player, but too injury prone to make a difference, so we better trade him if we can

Why Nets do it: Nets shore up their two weaknesses, Defense and Rebounding

Why Bucks do it: Bucks are obviously tanking, losing a rotation player (who certainly WON'T be a part of their future when they make the playoffs) isn't going to make their record any worse. The picks are protected very safely so there really is no risk involved for them, and if Lopez ever plays major minutes for them a la Andrew Bynum for the Lakers, then it would be a good trade overall

Why the Rockets do it: The rockets need to face the fact that no one is going to give them the unprotected 1st Round pick they want, in this trade, they get the stretch 4 in Ilyasova, a strong 1st Round pick from the Bucks, but also the highest 2nd Rounder in 2014

An underrated aspect of the Nets last year was that they were one of the better rebounding teams in the league, we can bash reggie evans all we want, but he provided us with a few extra possessions, now we're getting outrebounded every game. Asik fills that void, and he wont be a complete zero on offense, plus he'll bring a slight upgrade on defense which is also important.
