View Full Version : Oden Looking to Re-up with Blazers for 1 More Year

Center Greg Oden is reportedly "strongly leaning" toward re-signing with the Blazers for a one year, $8.8 million qualifying offer and then becoming an unrestricted free agent this summer.
To say this is the most important 66-game stretch of Oden's life is a big understatement. He'll have to first prove he's just healthy enough to play, and then prove that he's healthy enough to be worth a big contract after the season. He's got his work cut out for him, but if there was ever a time to bet on Oden overcoming the odds, it's now. Unfortunately, determination isn't going to be the deciding factor on whether or not his knee holds up this season. Dec 4 - 8:07 PM

I don't blame him. Prove he is healthy and effective and cash in next summer, or get hurt and get the bare minimum for the next 5 years before he retires early.

if I were him and I was 100% sure I would stay healthy then I would take that 1 year deal and get paid very well next year. However, for him if someone say offers a 4 year deal for 20 mill how could you turn that extra money down?

Cause if he stays healthy he will get 3 times that.

Although he hasn't proven anything it would be stupid for blazers to let him to I'd say try their best to re uP him to a long term deal at best he becomes really good at worst he is a bad contract and honestly the blazers invested so much into him they need to take this risk

Worth the risk. He just needs to take care of his legs and get a good trainer. Better chance he doesn't blow his knee out again than he does.

They can't let him or not let him. They have to offer the QO or risk letting him walk.

Even if he gets injured again this season, some team will sign him again next season, and hope for the best.

He has made a lot of money already in his non-NBA career, while having the best doctors and best others trying to get him healthy.

If he never plays another NBA game, he should still consider himself to be one of the .001% luckiest people in the world.

Unfortunately, humans do not operate on that type of thinking, which is why we are all DOOMED........DOOMED I tell you.

But other than that, everything is fine.

he should be on the suns. their training staff is pretty amazing with what they've done with hill and shaq when he was on the team

Top 5 or so center when healthy. Such a shame injuries are hurting him this bad, and this early in his career. Hopefully he can shake them off, and have a big year for the Portland Trail Blazers.

Good move. If he has a good season, he will still get real money from Por and or another team.

If he and Roy can prove to be healthy this season, Por can be a top 3 team in the west with the roster they have.

Wrong, take 20 or take 8 is not 1/10 of anything. You are basing you 1/10 on if he gets injured, but he'd still have 8 million.
