Omer Asik did not address his trade request or unwillingness to play or practice last week, but he did say that he is ready to help the Houston Rockets again.
“The thing is, I was just frustrated,” Asik said at Tuesday’s shootaround. “It’s behind me now. I’m just looking forward to help my team to win.”
When asked if he still wanted to be traded, Asik declined to comment.
“I do not talk about that,” he said. “I never talk about that. My focus is just winning tonight’s game (against the Celtics) and helping my team as much as I can.”
