Do you think a franchise can afford to count on Greg Oden at this point in his career? He's a low risk/high reward gamble, but not someone you plan for as a core piece of the future.

I'm all for giving him a shot, but you don't pass on certain guys at No. 1 in this draft with the assumption, "Don't worry, we'll have Oden!" I would be shocked if he factored into the decision at all. That isn't to say the draft won't turn out well for them or that signing Oden isn't a good idea... You just can't count on someone in his position.
