Free agent big man Greg Oden is said to be leaning towards signing with the Miami Heat, and according to team scout Tim Hardaway, the 25-year old center would help ensure a third consecutive ‘chip for the South Beach boys. Per Fox Sports: “The Heat remain committed to going after free-agent center Greg Oden, who is expected to make a decision soon. Miami coach Erik Spoelstra and vice president of player personnel Chet Kammerer observed Oden in a workout last week in his hometown of Indianapolis. ‘If we get Greg Oden, I think we will win a third (straight) title,’ Heat scout Tim Hardaway said. Oden hasn’t played in an NBA game since 2009 due to knee injuries. But he has been said to be looking good in his recovery, and San Antonio, Dallas, Sacramento, New Orleans and Atlanta are also interested in signing him.”
