A surprise candidate has popped up in the race for Greg Oden. While we all knew the Miami Heat were a front runner, the Cavaliers have also emerged as a possible Greg Oden destination.
If you take a closer look, it actually makes sense. The Cavs are in a rebuilding mode, so they can take a gamble on Greg Oden. They don’t have a long-term dominating center, so Greg Oden will get minutes if he pans out. Thirdly, and perhaps most importantly, they are under the cap and can offer Oden more money than the other teams that are interested.
Greg Oden says he won’t be able to play this season but he wants to hook up with a team in order to get ready for next season.
When all the chips are down, don’t count out Greg Oden going to the Cavaliers.
