Oden will decide which team he’ll sign with sometime within the next week. In addition to the 3 teams who attended his workout, the Dallas Mavericks, Sacramento Kings and Miami Heat are also interested in the former Portland Trailblazers #1 draft pick.
The Atlanta Hawks would likely represent the most immediate playing time for Greg Oden, but other teams could give him the chance to work his way back into the NBA at a slow and steady pace. Of course that depends on how well his knees hold up through training camp and the season.
That’s really one thing that has held this big man down, are the knee problems. If he’s serious about winning a championship, can stay and remain healthy (which could be a problem with a guy his size and his history), then the Miami Heat or San Antonio Spurs could be the favorite to sign Oden.
In addition to Hawks, I’m told Spurs and Pelicans also have representatives at Greg Oden’s latest workout audition in Indianapolis
