We have 2 free roster spots. ;)

Does he have like a good sized contract? maybe take a chance on him off the bench next year? Backing up at center?

js12 03-15-2012 08:08 PM

I think he only has 1 year left on his contract anyway. Sadly, I doubt he will even return to the court again.

he's not under contract for next season if i'm not mistaken. this was an option year.

Yup believe Blazers just signed him to a 1 year contract this off season. Ill say it will be hard for a team to really take a chance on him this season. Take a look at the Blazers held onto him for almost 6 years and havent even played 100 games yet or a full season

dang, 6 seasons and not even 100 gp? ouch

He should go to Pheonix, their trainers are known to do wonders

Dark Knight 03-16-2012 12:04 AM

This would be a real test for that Alex McKechnie guy. See if that magical trainer is worth the money. :cookie:

Toby 03-16-2012 03:32 AM

He won't play until 2014, and that's if he can ever play again. Portland had to drop him to make room for Okur (hurt), Thabeet (who knows), and Jonny Flynn (kind've hurt?), and another yet to be known able body.

Nites 03-16-2012 03:38 AM

I think once he leaves Portland he will remain healthy. It might be too late though.

Chris 03-16-2012 07:54 AM

I still have the summer copy of SLAM with Oden and Durant on the front. He was supposed to be the next Shaq :(

we should pick him up for as low as we can for as long as we can, if we can get him for lets say 16 mil for 4 years, i would take a risk i guess

We don't need to give him a chance. JV should take up as many minutes as he can handle next year at the 5 spot. Even if Oden does get healthy, who knows how much talent he's lost and how much playing time he's gunna need to become as elite as he was supposed to be. Probably more time than JV.

Chiggmo 03-18-2012 10:46 PM

Rehab him and turn him into a trade asset! lol:cookie:

I'd be surprised if he got 4M for one year.

I wouldn't give him half that..... and 4yrs??? Are you high? If you are and you're selling, i'm buying.
