Except they are starters on most teams. Asik would be starting on all but maybe 5 other teams. Also, he's been injured. Lin has also been injured, but is starting to pick up his play as he gets healthier. He would start on a lot of teams as well.
If you look at all that Morey has done, it's pretty remarkable. It's strange that some don't see that. He's turned a poorly constructed team into a top level contender, full of very young players without having tanked, which seems to be the fad now.
What GM in the NBA has done a better job than Morey?
