Greg Oden Looking At Free Agency As ‘My Move’

by April 30, 2011

As a restricted free agent this summer, Greg Oden will have to make up his mind of whether to accept a likely four-year, $40 million offer from the Blazers. John Canzano of The Oregonian reports: “I asked Oden about the June qualifying offer that the Blazers will almost certainly make to him. And I wondered if Portland might have watched the Mavericks excuse them in the first round of the playoffs and thought about what a healthy Oden might have meant. ‘The way I look at it,’ he said, ‘is that it’s not their move. It’s my move. Everyone says it’s their move. I think it’s my move.'”
