Greg Oden Expected to Choose a Team Today

Former top NBA Draft pick Greg Oden plans to choose an NBA team among several suitors on Friday, according to multiple reports. Oden has apparently looked good in workotus. Per ESPN: “Sources said that Oden, after showing off his skills for several teams over the past few weeks, has not yet ruled out any of the six teams chasing him but is most likely to select his destination from the trio of Miami, San Antonio and Dallas. New Orleans, Sacramento and Atlanta are the other known suitors for Oden. One source close to the process said Thursday night that the Pelicans are the only team from that group still ‘in the mix.’ Every team from the final six but Dallas sent a representative to Indianapolis last week to watch Oden work out, with multiple witnesses saying later that Oden has noticeably slimmed down and is moving well more than a year removed from his last microfracture knee surgery. Sources said all six of the teams in the Oden chase then presented offers early this week that detailed not only financial specifics but also each club’s medical plans for overseeing the 25-year-old Oden’s ongoing recovery from a multitude of knee problems. Oden hasn’t played in an NBA game since Dec. 5, 2009, and underwent his third career microfracture surgery as recently as February 2012.”

    Logical choice would be Miami… But I wouldn’t be surprised to see him go to the Spurs or the Pelicans.

    What, does Miami have the best doctors??

  • JibbsIsBallin

    No Miami Doctors are mostly crooks. But Miami needs a big man to help out.

    The Miami doctors could make him look younger.

    He should go to the Pelicans IF and that’s a big IF only if he wants to become the star that he was supposed to be. If he’s healthy as they say he is, he could become a solid player in the league especially with the Pelicans and form a defensive duo with Anthony Davis, they’d have a legitimate team that Oden can grow with and they could make some noise in the Western conference. Plus, they have Monty Williams as coach who Oden is familiar with since he was the Associate head coach under Nate McMillan in Portland.

    Potential starting 5:
    PG Holiday
    SG Gordon
    SF Evans
    PF Davis
    C Oden

    Ryan Anderson
    Austin Rivers
    Al-Farouq Aminu
    Anthony Morrow
