Default Portland and Greg Oden

Quote:
Greg Oden will be a restricted free agent during this offseason and the Blazers are almost certain to extend the qualifying offer.

But there are also reports that the Blazers may make a four-year, $40 million offer.

"The way I look at it," he said, "is that it's not their move. It's my move. Everyone says it's their move. I think it's my move."

There is inherent risk in offering long-term money, but it could prove to be a below market contract if Oden remains healthy.

As one Eastern Conference executive put it on Friday, "If you know Oden is a 1-in-20 shot to come back and be a factor, you have to take it. Because not signing him, you have a 0-in-20 shot of being there if he does.

"Still, $40 mil makes you think."

So let me get this straight...dude is OUTRAGEOUSLY unproven at this point, and seriously injury prone....


So, they offer him four years at 40 million? Are they fu*king insane?

this is like putting cash down on a high risk investment with high rewards if it pans out. i don't know what to say. however, $40 million / 4 years is an awful lot of money for him.

Not sure on the money, but I do know they said they would offer to resign him as long as his recovery is on point.

I dont see why Portland would offer this. I dont buy these "reports". bogus imo

Any Blazers fans keeping up on news heard these reports as well?

greg oden is even luckier than lewis and gilbert. At least they play for their money oden just sits and gets millions.

Well he recovered perfectly fine from his first injury and if recovers from this one and stays healthy at worst he's a top 5 center. I hope he didn't lose any athleticism because that will be really important.

This is a testament to the lack of big men in the league.

Default Re: Portland and Greg Oden

Blazers can't afford to have that much money tied down to two such injury prone players in Roy and Oden...however Oden does not suck when e does play, check out his stats in about 20mins of play, if he learns to control his fouls which usually happens as a big man matures, he is defintely a two way solid legit 5...

But four years is too long, maybe 3+to, if I were the blazers I would look to sign and trade him to a rebuilding team that has the time and cap space to take such a big risk

Why not just give that money to DeAndre Jordan or Marc Gasol??

He should give back to Portland. Take less money and show that you can be healthy and that you're thankful for what they did for you. He will get a lot of good will for doing so.
