Haynes & Jaynes: LAMVP?

MINNESOTA -- The Portland Trail Blazers are not involved in any talks centered on acquiring Houston Rockets center Omer Asik via trade, a league source informed

Portland owns the best record in the NBA and team chemistry is a big reason why. Adding a talent such as Asik to the mix would be a risk not worth taking, another source who is briefed on the situation told Wednesday afternoon.

Houston desires to bring in a power forward to compliment Dwight Howard before its self-imposed end-of-the-week deadline it issued to teams interested in making a deal.

This Portland team has grown to love Robin Lopez for not just his play on the court, but for his perfect fit in the locker room. His intangibles on the court have helped take LaMarcus Aldridge’s career to another level.

As of now, the Trail Blazers are standing pat as far as any major additions, we’re told.
