Greg Oden rumors are heating up again and Oden may be heading to sign a Cleveland Cavaliers contract soon. According to a report from Friday (Feb. 22), Oden has already worked out for the Cavs and it appears that the team is ready to bring him on.
This is big news, even if Oden has only played 82 games during his NBA career this far. The Ohio State University product has been through three microfracture surgeries since being drafted No. 1 in the 2007 NBA Draft by the Portland Trail Blazers. The franchise has since been ridiculed a lot for selecting Oden over Kevin Durant.
Though the deal is ready to take place, Oden won't play in a game until at least the 2013-14 NBA season. He has to not only get back into shape to do it, but his contract won't allow it yet either. Besides the fact that he could return to Ohio to play in the NBA, one of the other reasons that Cleveland became a good fit was because they could offer the highest dollar amount.
While the Greg Oden to Cleveland Cavaliers deal isn't done yet, the workouts and exams are out of the way, paving the way for the two sides to strike a deal.
