Greg Oden is the exact opposite of what coach Mike wants. He is a slow it down post up center and his job is also to play some hard-core defense. Factor in that he's way more injury prone than Andrew Bynum was And is absolutely a 0% guarantee that he would even play at all if we did sign him.
who cares what mike wants. oden won't be ready this season and mike might not be in lala land much longer. it's not my money, so sure, i'd take a gamble on him with a team option for the 3rd year.
