Why not Larry Sanders instead of Asik?

I understand the appeal of wanting to get Omer Asik. I do. He is a defensive minded center and a rim protector, great. The thing about Omer Asik is that he is also paid a lot of money. Next year he will be paid $15 million dollars. That is near max money on a deal for a guy who has a hell of a lot of trouble putting the ball in the basket. I know that everyone starts talking about the fact that it is only an $8.6 (approx) cap hit and all that but you know that this isn't 2K14 right? $15 million real dollars have to be paid out to this guy from ownership. I think that he is a great piece that you add on after you already have three big time scorers or at least competent scorers on your team to round out a championship.

I think as far as potentially available centers go, Larry Sanders is a better gamble. He is a capable offensive player, blocks shots, and runs the floor. The problem with Asik is that you already know what you're going to get. A late 20's player isn't going to miraculously develop an offensive game when he comes to play under a first year coach. I don't think that Asik wins you any more games than you would probably win anyway. I guess I just don't see what the big deal is about him.

Be respectful and keep it clean. Thanks.
