Asik and Valanciunas together (and throw in Hansbrough, Johnson, and Gray into the mix) just wouldn't work that way.
I actually think it might work since Lousy, DeRozan, Gay and Ross are all long range chuckers. Have Jonas and Asik plant themselves early under the basket and have them feast on the offensive boards. Not the most conventional method for an offensive, but hell, we don't have a conventional team.
