Executive: Greg Oden is ‘Moving Very Well’

An NBA executive who was in attendance for one of Greg Oden’s recent workouts came away impressed with the free agent center.
“He’s moving very well,” the executive said of Oden. “He’s definitely coming along. You can tell that he has worked very hard to get to this point.”
The executive spoke on condition of anonymity due to the private nature of the workout.
Teams in the mix for Oden understand that he will have to be eased back into the NBA, playing some reserve minutes here and there before taking on an increased workload. Even if Oden is a shell of his former self in his reserve minutes, the hope is that a limited Oden is still better than many reserve big men in the league.
The teams competing for Oden’s services – the Miami HEAT, New Orleans Pelicans, San Antonio Spurs, Sacramento Kings, Dallas Mavericks and Atlanta Hawks – expect the center to make his free agency decision on Friday.
