Bulls Offseason News: Rockets Won't Sign Omer Asik To Offer Sheet Until Jeremy Lin Decision

While it appears almost inevitable that the New York Knicks will match the offer the Houston Rockets made to Jeremy Lin, the decision is affecting the Chicago Bulls. That is because the Rockets will not sign Omer Asik to an offer sheet until there is a resolution with Lin.

There has been little to indicate that the Chicago Bulls would even match the Rockets' offer to Asik, but they can't officially make that decision until Lin's future is decided.

Asik has played two seasons for Chicago and averaged 2.9 points per game during that time.
