With trade rumors swirling about the new home for Houston Rockets center Omer Asik, one destination that has been thrown into the mix is Cleveland, Ohio and the Cavaliers.
Some of the reports state that Asik would be dealt for Anderson Varejao but if you ask Cleveland head coach Mike Brown, Anderson isn’t going anyway.
Check out the below quote from Ohio.com’s Jason Lloyd where Brown could pronounce Asik’s name:
“It’s funny to hear people report that Anderson Varejao is getting traded for Omer Asik,” Brown said while butchering the pronunciation of Asik’s last name. “If I can’t pronounce his name, you know it ain’t going to happen. It’s mind-boggling.” The Cavs have no interest in Asik, but they could still get involved if it turns into a three-team deal, which ESPN has reported multiple times it could.
