Robin would be a good fit here. Not too expensive.

"I'm not going to allow my putative owner to answer that question, this is an NBA related press conference. Paul Tagliabue and Roger Goodell have collectively sung their praises of Tom and if uh ESPN has a problem with that tell Mr. Skipper to call me at my office."
I'd be down with Robin. He is a solid player and his hair is fantastic. I can see fans wearing Lopez wigs and Davis unibrows. We'd have some of the best hair in the league!
Argue Zeller might be a cheaper version of Asik. Argue that Zeller COULD be better than Asik in 3 yrs, but don't say a rookie yet to step on an NBA court is better than a player that's contributed and helped a playoff team.
Robin reminds me a lot of TC. He brings the nastiness that you need for an elite defensive team. He is a true 7-footer, athletic, and has great defensive instincts/rebounding.
"Yuck... Omer Asik Offer is back loaded with a nasty $15 million year in the 3rd year... ouch that's gonna be tough to match."

Wow... wtf are the Rockets thinking? Just to add, I'm sure Mickey Loomis has been studying the ins and outs of the NBA CBA and contract issues and you'll probably see his influence on the Hornets free agent signings. And, thank goodness for that.

15 million for a year of Omar Asik.
What does that even
Just to kind of put it in perspective, Asik obviously does some things well, but Lance Thomas averaged 4 points and 3 rebounds per game last year. Asik averaged 3 points and 5 rebounds.
John Hollinger looked at it and said he thinks the max should only be 23.1 million.
I guess they're thinking they can trade his expiring in year three... quite a gamble.
What if someone sets the contract up for Gordon like this. Something like most of the money in the second season of the contract? I'm not concerned, but it is food for thought.
Rockets overpayed on Asik...... horrible, and if the Bulls match that, then they are even more stupid, he isn't even close to that much $$$

Baptize them in the water out of Scarface pool,
And feed 'em from the table that held Corleone's food,
If you die, tell them that you played my game
I hope your bullet holes become mouths that say my name.
Let Asik go to the Rockets! Then they wouldn't have much to throw at Gordon, even if we like the S/T offer, he's not going to sign because he want the big bucks!
2013-1014 is the season the Pelicans fanbase grows!!!!
Stern please call a mandatory owners meeting, another lockout, a veto? Just for the love of god"Yuck... Omer Asik Offer is back loaded with a nasty $15 million year in the 3rd year... ouch that's gonna be tough to match."
MAKE IT STOP!
Would you guys make a run at Nash (forget the fact that he's my favorite non hornet and my avatar), I know he's old but I think he could do invaluable things for Rivers, Gordon, Davis. We could offer him what he wants contractually and we'd be in the playoffs almost immediately. I honestly think this would be a better option than signing Mcgee/Batum/Dragic. Rivers and Gordon could learn a few things as ball handlers (Dragic did) and Davis could learn how to be a P&R offensive beast (Amare did). I still would rather hold on to our space but if we HAD to spend it that's who i would spend it on.
It'd be good in theory, but I don't think we'd be on his radar, mostly because he either wants to play for a contender or his homeland, and we are neither. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to have his court vision and leadership for two seasons, but I just don't think he'd consider us as a legitimate possibility.
