(Houston, TX) -- The impending signing of free-agent center Dwight Howard isn't making every member of the Houston Rockets jump for joy. Incumbent starter Omer Asik has reportedly formally requested a trade from the team. ESPN reports that Houston has no plans to grant Asik's wish. Asik started all 82 games last season and averaged just over 10 points and 12 rebounds for the Rockets.
