Report: Greg Oden Working Out For Hornets, Mavericks

by June 21, 2015

The first overall pick in the 2007 NBA Draft, Greg Oden has only managed to stay healthy for parts of three NBA seasons (2008-10 in Portland and 2013-14 in Miami) but according to a report, he’s still getting looks around the League. Last week, Oden worked out for the Charlotte Hornets, and this week he will work out for the Dallas Mavericks. The Grizzlies are also reportedly keeping an eye on Oden. Can he make an NBA comeback?

From RealGM:

As Greg Oden attempts a return in the NBA, the former No. 1 overall pick worked out for the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday and will visit the Dallas Mavericks this week, league sources told RealGM.


Oden will be part of the Mavericks’ free-agent mini-camp that includes wings and several big men, such as Keith Benson. The 7-foot Oden had worked out for the Memphis Grizzlies in the spring, and the franchise is expected to continue to monitor him.
