Omer Asik Rumors: Portland Blazers Plan To Make Offer On Monday

The Portland Trail Blazers plan to make an offer to restricted free agent Omer Asik on Monday after a group of team executives met with the center on Sunday, as Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports. Given that Asik is a restricted free agent, the Chicago Bulls retain the right to match any offer sheet that the center signs during this offseason.

The Blazers have also reportedly signed Pacers center Roy Hibbert to a four-year, $58 million max offer sheet, so they're clearly looking to upgrade at the center position this summer. Portland already has one of the top big men in the sport in LaMarcus Aldridge, but pairing him with another quality big could give the team a dominant front court.
