Sources told ESPN that Oden will put his skills on display again Thursday for Atlanta Hawks officials before sitting down for his long-anticipated private meeting with the Pelicans later this week in Las Vegas.

This was from Marc Stein, last updated yesterday.

I'm sure the meeting in Vegas (tomorrow?) is still scheduled, but we just wanted to get another look at him working out today.

It may also be trying to keep the team that can outbid everyone, Atlanta, from having a private meeting with Oden.

I'm thinking a wheelchair will be the leader of the Greg Oden movement before it's said and done.

Every tweet/rumor/brain fart dealing with Oden should be taken on a block of himalayan salt at this point. His agent is spreading bull shite like a farmer.

He may have corrected it (or someone else initially reported it). I too remember reading the workout for Atlanta would be in Vegas before a meeting with the Pelicans today. Obviously that was not correct.

I have noticed that Spears has quieted down on it. Given his responses in that interview (wish him the best *chuckles), I get the impression that he has figured it out, too.

I really do think they were being fed a line in order to manipulate the Oden market.

I swear to God I'm on my phone (at a bar of course) and clicked on the Onion link without looking at the source. Took me a minute . . .

quote:

According to reports, Oden later began repeatedly shifting in his chair, hurriedly muttering “Yep, yep, yep” and “Uh-huh, uh-huh, got it” as Spoelstra explained in detail how the former number one overall draft pick would figure into Miami’s motion offense.

However, while assistant coach David Fizdale subsequently laid out various four-out/one-in schemes in which Oden could play alongside the team’s perimeter shooters, the 7-footer is said to have sat perfectly still, reportedly terrified that with even the slightest movement, the intense throbbing would cause him to black out.

At one point, sources said Oden looked upward as beads of sweat poured down his face and softly whispered, “You can do this.” “I can’t wait to show you how much my low-post game has improved,” said Oden, adding that he needed “a few minutes alone to get ready” before his scheduled workout for the Heat and various other NBA teams.

“I’ve been working really hard, and I’m 100 percent ready to—Jesus fricking Christ—excuse me, I mean to say I’m 100 percent ready to play at the highest level.” Sources confirmed that immediately after the Heat staff exited the room, Oden sank into his chair, put his face into his hands, and began violently sobbing.

Despite possessing a $3.2 million taxpayer mid-level exception for next season, the Heat were said to propose a one-year, $1 million contract to Oden, who responded by forcefully clenching his fists amid what appeared to be some sort of full-body spasm. Sources added that on two separate occasions during the negotiations, Oden stopped speaking mid-sentence, shut his eyes, and inhaled deeply before continuing.
