"Would you sign Greg Oden to a 2yr deal right today?"


  

          

or say this summer after he completes rehab?

Given that there will be teams lining up to see if he's fully recovered, would you jump the gun and offer a moderate contract regardless? Say something like 4-5 mil a yr for 2 yrs (2nd yr team option to allow for locking him in for another yr if he pans out and then negotiating an extension).

What teams do you think should take the flier? Heat? Bulls? Suns? Rockets? Mavs? Hawks? Magic? Clev? Bobcats? Wiz?

Greg Oden hopes to return to NBA next season
Posted by Inside Hoops
Jan
10

Nearly a year removed from his latest knee surgery, former No. 1 overall pick Greg Oden has decided to resume his playing career but is not planning to return to the NBA before the 2013-14 season, according to sources close to the situation.

Sources told ESPN.com that multiple teams have already expressed interest in signing Oden to a multi-year deal before the end of this season that would allow him to continue his rehab until he can get back on the court in training camp next fall.

The Miami Heat are at the front of the line in pursuing Oden, two sources said, and have been keeping tabs as he recovers while also taking classes at Ohio State.

Sources say that the Heat, though, are not alone in their pursuit of the former No. 1 overall pick.

– Reported by Brian Windhorst and Marc Stein of ESPN.com

He wouldn't have to worry about scoring so much but he'd still get looks cuz harden and lin can dish.

He could focus on his best attributes, rebounding and shot blocking.

He wouldn't have to play a ton of minutes cuz Omer could move to F and they could spell him a lot if needed (25-30 mpg)

Maaaaaaaaaaan, I do NOT want to see this.

The Bulls should do it. JR is cheap and if he can lock up an asset like Oden on the cheap AND he pans out? Perfect.

We paying Nazr Mohammed about that much to do nothing lol.

but they wouldn't necessarily need to score big points.

The wings dominate the ball there already.

How many shots Asik/Patterson/Morris get?

Get with that training staff and if the right things happen, he'd be due for a bigger payday in 2 years.

I'd pay him.

Worth a gamble, a guy who knows the NBA game and is a true back to the basket center with post moves.

Won't hurt, if he can't play he can't play. Win/win for everyone involved, you spend some scratch to get him signed.. he blows up? Probably not but.. he proves he can still play, and you got the inside track on his next contract.

I'd rather have any center rather than 10 games of Oden. I hope all the best for him but health and durability are obviously huge factors when comparing players.
