We will know by today or tomorrow. Portland has Wednesday to give him a qualifying offer. Oden is high risk/high reward. High risk for his history of injury, but also for his high salary. Being a No. 1 pick, he made 6.8 million last year, and has a team qualifying offer for 8.8 million dollars next year.
