The 76ers could be a landing spot for Houston Rockets center Omer Asik in a trade, CBSSports.com reported Sunday night. The Rockets could make point guard Jeremy Lin and Asik available in trades as they pursue free-agent center Dwight Howard of the Los Angeles Lakers. Houston is expected to sign Howard, meaning Asik would become expendable. New Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie was an executive with Houston for the last eight seasons. Last summer, the Rockets signed Asik to a three-year, $25.1 million deal when he was a restricted free agent with the Chicago Bulls.

THE ONLY TRADE involving Dwight Howard, it turns out, came last summer. The potent scorers who moved did so long ago. There was no eye-catching activity left for deadline day, resulting in minor deals Thursday to the disappointment of those hoping for a frenzy. Josh Smith stayed put and the Boston Celtics' core stayed together, leaving J.J. Redick, dealt to Milwaukee, as the biggest name to be traded. "I don't think I've seen fewer trade deadline deals, ever," Houston general manager Daryl Morey said.

HOUSTON - Matt Schaub missed Houston's 2011 playoff run with an injured foot. Now the Texans' quarterback, who starred at West Chester East High School, is healthy and looking forward to his first playoff start Saturday against the Cincinnati Bengals. The wild-card playoff game offers Schaub a chance to redeem himself after he threw two interceptions in last week's loss to Indianapolis, which kept Houston from getting a first-round bye and home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs.
