Earlier today it was reported by ESPN that free agent big man Greg Oden looked ‘lean’ and was ‘moving well’ during workouts, citing his impressive condition as to why so many teams are showing interest in the former number one overall pick.
Now, according to Yahoo Sports, Oden appears most interested in the Miami Heat and New Orleans Pelicans.
Per Marc J. Spears:
Free agent center Greg Oden appears most intrigued by Pelicans & Heat, source told Y! Sports. Decision still expected this week.
Oden’s agent recently came out and suggested the former Ohio State star would like to sign with a rebuilding franchise to avoid the pressures of a winning team, which fits the mold of the New Orleans Hornets who should be void of much pressure and are currently attempting to build a winner.
Unlike the Hornets, the Miami Heat will be full of pressure but Oden would also be turning down a near perfect scenario of winning and floor time – something he most likely wouldn’t find elsewhere.
