Omer Asik

OMER ASIK (CHI)

#3•O. ASIK

C • 7’0, 255 lbs; 9th year, Turkey

UNDERDOG

NBA ROLE: RESERVE 5

 

Big Omer Asik, a very well compensated* UnderDOG, (ideally) makes an impact on the glass and near the basket; Asik is a defensive-minded center who’s declined as a rim protector in today’s game; doesn't provide much offense: hands of stone (struggles w/ the catch part of catching & finishing); takes his time before deciding what to do (reversing back, hook shot, scoop) – decent roll finisher – one of a few true centers (the only European one?) who strictly scores via catches, put backs, etc.; solid help side defense is Asik’s saving grace, though his ineptitude on offense has worn thin; back in the CHI – veteran backup, only plays short stretches off the bench
