Greg Oden to Reportedly Get 2-Year Contract from the Cleveland Cavaliers

by February 08, 2013

The Cleveland Cavaliers are believed to be the favorites to land oft-injured center Greg Oden, and according to the Akron Beacon Journal, the Cavs are set to offer the big man a two-year deal: “The Cavs are expected to offer free agent center Greg Oden a two-year contract with a team option for a third year after the Feb. 21 trade deadline passes, a league source said. The contract would begin immediately. The Cavs have about $4 million in cap space, which they are preserving now for potential trades. Teams around the league don’t want to sign Oden until after the trade deadline. Oden has visited with the Boston Celtics and could meet again with the Cavs in the coming weeks, his agent said Friday. Oden is living nearby in Columbus. His agent, Mike Conley Sr., said last week Oden has been to see the Cavs a couple of times already, but was evasive when pressed as to what capacity. ‘Greg has been up there (to Cleveland) before and he’ll probably be up there again in an official capacity,’ Conley said Friday.”
