Apparently Omer Asik is not the only big man on the Houston Rockets who is upset with his role and wants to be traded as soon as possible.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, forward Donatas Motiejunas wants to be moved and the Rockets are calling around the league to see if any team is interested and can meet their asking price.
Motiejunas is averaging just 8.7 minutes in 17 appearances this season and at this time his value around the NBA is low. There is a chance Asik and Motiejunas could be packaged together as both big men are represented by Wasserman Media Group's Arn Tellem.
Currently head coach Kevin McHale is starting Terrence Jones at power forward, with Omri Casspi as the main backup.
