The Pelicans have shown interest in Greg Oden


quote:

Chris Broussard ?@Chris_Broussard
In addition 2 Heat & Cavs, San Antonio, New Orleans, Charlotte, Indiana & Dallas r interested in Greg Oden, sources say. Decision n 3-4 wks
The guy's likely done but there's not really a downside to bringing him in. Im sure Monty has some type of relationship with him, fwiw.

He's been resting for a few years. Maybe he can turn into a great fouler off the bench?

He and Gordon are going to have a fragile knee contest

What's the downside, depending on his contract size? Losing a roster spot?

I figure he can get a deal with team options written in that would allow us to cut him loose if he can't perform.

After how our medical team seemingly botched Gordon's prognosis, I can't even fathom how they would handl Oden.

re: The Pelicans have shown interest in Greg Oden


One of the things I skimmed today said he was looking to sign with a team for rehab. I guess he's looking for a paycheck and giving the team that gives it to him his rights for next season?

quote:

Oden did, however, did have a tiny bit of information as to when his return to the league might occur.

“I don't know when, but I'm taking this year off," Oden said. "I'll play next year.”

His camp has been saying Miami for a while, and he's planning on meeting with them next week.

Blazers probably should have gone Durant instead

I say send him to the same place in L.A. that they sent Gordon. Leave him there for the rest of the season and the summer and see what happens.

I hope they don't bump knees in practice.
