Conley: ’50-50′ Oden Signs This Season
The San Antonio Spurs have the best record in the NBA and the Charlotte Bobcats have the worst. But they have something in common.
Mike Conley, the agent for often-injured free-agent center Greg Oden, said Wednesday they’re both teams that interest his client.
“I definitely can see both of those teams (as possibilities),’’ Conley said in a telephone interview with FOX Sports Florida. “San Antonio has an aging front line with (Tim) Duncan, and with Duncan and the Admiral (retired David Robinson, who still lives in San Antonio), he would have some great mentors.
It would be a risk signing Oden, who hasn’t played in an NBA game since December 2009. He has had five knee surgeries since being the NBA’s No. 1 draft pick in 2007, but he wants to resume his career next season.
“A few weeks ago, I’d probably have said it was 80 percent,’’ Conley said of Oden signing with a team this season. “Now, I’d say it’s 50-50.’’
