Bulls Let Omer Asik Walk

The Houston Rockets made an offer than Omer Asik could not refuse.  A $25.1 contract over a 3 year period. The Bulls made a counter offer to Omer, one week before Houston officially submitted the sheet, of 4 years $21 million, which does not trump the Houston offer.

Gar Foreman was skeptical that Houston was going to leave such a huge offer on the table, after the Rockets used the same contract on surprise sensation, Jeremy Lin. Even before the speculated offer was made, the Bulls claimed they were going to match.

According to KC Johnson, the Bulls will officially decline to match in a press announcement sometime this afternoon.

The Bulls signed veteran Center, Nazr Mohammed last week, and look to have moved on already.
