Default Whether to keep Omer Asik or not is expensive decision for Bulls

The decision to match the Houston Rocketsí $25 million contract offer for Asik or allow the backup center to leave has put Bulls vice president John Paxson and general manager Gar Forman in an awkward spot: How do you win that one?

If they let Asik go, the Bulls will lose a valuable member of a precious second unit they probably value more than they should, but that unit still will be key to their success until they find a Kevin Durant or Chris Bosh to support Derrick Rose. As limited as he is offensively, Asik remains a key chess piece against the Miami Heat. Itís unlikely the Bulls can replace him with a minimum salary.

But if they sign him, Asik will be carrying a $15 million cap hit for 2014-15 like a ball-and-chain for the next three seasons.
