I believe as long as he doesn't play a second this year, he will be considered a rookie next year and will be eligible for the ROTY and two years of the Rookie Challenge.

I don't know...Speedy Claxton was injured before he could play his rookie season and he was considered a sophmore with the Philadelphia 76ers

I don't think Oden will be eligible because he already played Summer League and a year has passed on his contract.

I'm really not sure though.

I believe I read he will be (I think Jason Quick, a Blazer beat writer wrote it). I can't find the article though.

Well, I'm assuming this link means that Oden will at least be eligible for 2 Rookie Challenges. In this link you can see TJ Ford was in the 2005-06 rookie game. He was a rookie in 03-04, and was hurt all of 04-05, so they counted his 3rd year as his second even though he played 2 years prior.

Yeah, i remember reading something by Quick saying that next year will be considered Oden's rookie year...

What kinda of numbers do you thinkg Oden will put up next year?? I'm thinking around 13 points, 11 boards and 2.5 blocks...

Cord: I don't even know where to start. If Oden gets the stats you have listed, I would be more than happy.
