Greg Oden

  1. Portland’s bandwagon getting full as Lakers come to town

    Jan 5, 2012, 2:24 PM EDT

    portland-trail-blazers Gerald Wallace

    As you read this, the Portland Trail Blazers are the top seed in the Western Conference. Which after five whole games has all the meaning of a politician’s campaign promise, even in a 66 game season. Few people mention them as title contenders. But if you were watching the other day they beat Oklahoma City…

  2. NBA Season Preview: Portland Trail Blazers

    Dec 15, 2011, 8:30 AM EDT

    Paul Millsap, Gerald Wallace, Wesley Matthews

    2010-11 record: 48-34 Head Coach: Nate McMillan Key Departures: Brandon Roy, Greg Oden (out for season), Rudy Fernandez, Andre Miller Key Additions: Nolan Smith, Raymond Felton Best-Case Scenario: The Blazers somehow find a way to once again overcome a slew of injuries and use their depth to be a mid-level playoff team in the Western…

  3. 2011 NBA Free Agency and Trade Current Events: This league is bananas, b-a-n-a-n-a-s

    Dec 10, 2011, 10:08 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Chicago Bulls

    Let’s say you had a full day of work on Thursday, and then a dinner engagement with a friend, or your kid had a basketball game or something. Then on Friday you had another full day, and then a work Christmas party. This is the holiday season, everyone’s busy. Perhaps you’ve missed what’s gone on in…

  4. There is new Greg Oden news, which means there is new horrible news

    Dec 9, 2011, 8:18 PM EDT

    Greg Oden

    From the Oregonian’s Jason Quick: Breaking: Blazers determine center Greg Oden has suffered setback, and restructure his one-year deal for a lesser amount… …But the Blazers, who didn’t comment Thursday after his appointment, determined that he is less likely to return to the court this season. Ugh. Looks like another year lost for the former…

  5. NBA “Deal Day” moves and rumors (constantly updated)

    Dec 9, 2011, 7:38 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    Today is going to be the Black Friday Sales of the NBA — there will be deals happening fast here, there and everywhere. Just like at Wal*Mart, you might have GMs pepper spraying others to make sure they get the player they want. It’s going to be hard to keep up with all the information,…

  6. Report: Oden to sign one-year offer to stay in Portland

    Dec 8, 2011, 12:47 PM EDT

    Greg Oden

    The Trail Blazers are giving Greg Oden one more shot. Oden is going to sign the Blazers one-year qualifying offer at $8.9 million, reports Jason Quick at the Oregonian. This is essentially the last year of his rookie deal, Oden will be an unrestricted free agent at the end of this season. Oden has played…

  7. Oden likely stays with Portland. You expected otherwise?

    Dec 5, 2011, 11:12 AM EDT

    Greg Oden

    There are a few teams out there desperate enough for a big man — we’re looking at you, Miami — that they may take a risk on Greg Oden. But the smart money says Oden was never leaving Portland, and Marc Spears at Yahoo is reporting he is about to take his $8.8 million option…

  8. Winderman: NBA should bring order to free agency chaos

    Dec 5, 2011, 9:11 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Portland Trail Blazers

    If the NBA was smart, it would swoop collectively upon Dallas, claim the already-booked hotel space and tell Major League Baseball that, at this moment, they need winter meetings far more than any other sport. In 2010, when the NBA actually had time to conduct an orderly free-agent process, most of the league found itself…

  9. Report: Heat in the lead for Battier

    Dec 4, 2011, 6:09 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game One

    Shane Battier is the type of player you would expect to take a discount to ring chase. He’s been a glue guy in Houston, sticking with them through injuries and curious decisions. He was the chemistry guy in Memphis, helping the younger players get better and making the three that gave the franchise its first…

  10. The Heat want to make a run at Greg Oden. I want to make a run at Isla Fisher. Both have equal odds.

    Dec 4, 2011, 10:42 AM EDT

    greg_oden

    The Heat are cash strapped. That tends to happen when you have three superstars playing on one team (or former superstars in the case of Chris Bosh — sorry, Chris). They need to improve their team and yet they don’t have much room and only one exception to use. So what’s the plan? Apparently it’s…

  11. Blazers president talks Roy, Oden, GM… but no real answers

    Dec 1, 2011, 11:45 AM EDT

    greg_oden

    Blazers president Larry Miller took on all questions and talked a lot at a Wednesday press conference. But like a good politican, he didn’t really say much. The Blazers are a team at a crossroads. What are they going to do with Brandon Roy? Greg Oden? When are they going to get a permanent general…

  12. Report: Blazers expected to use amnesty clause on Roy

    Nov 28, 2011, 9:35 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Portland Trail Blazers - Game Four

    Is it time for the Portland Trail Blazers to cut bait with Brandon Roy? It looks like they are, according to a tweet from John Canzano, radio and television personality in the area. Blazers appear ready to exercise amnesty on Brandon Roy…. Hoping they take a longer look at him before they do it. Roy…

  13. Greg Oden can now run

    Oct 27, 2011, 6:54 PM EDT

    ODEN_GREG

    From Oden’s Facebook page (via Blazer’s Edge): In LA right now working out. I ran the other day for the first time in awhile. Felt good! The 2007 #1 pick’s NBA career has been decimated by a series of brutal knee injuries, and he underwent the 2nd microfracture surgery of his career 11 months ago.…

  14. Portland tasked with fixing what isn’t broken

    Oct 13, 2011, 2:17 PM EDT

    LaMarcus Aldridge, Brandon Roy, Nicolas Batum, Rudy Fernandez, Gerald Wallace

    Things are going just fine for the Portland Trail Blazers these days: LaMarcus Aldridge made “the leap,” last season, Rich Cho stole Gerald Wallace out of Charlotte with a bargain trade package, Andre Miller was replaced with a younger facsimile, Brandon Roy has shown signs of life, and the roster is loaded with capable contributors.…

  15. What the Blazers should do if the lockout ends

    Sep 20, 2011, 6:14 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Dallas Mavericks - Game One

    The Blazers had an interesting year last season. Brandon Roy‘s injuries made him a shell of his former self, and 2007 #1 pick had yet another devastating knee injury that caused him to miss a full season. However, the team got a breakout year from LaMarcus Aldridge, Wesley Matthews backed up his contract, and a…

  16. Pritchard talks Paul Allen, choosing Oden over Durant

    Jul 6, 2011, 3:09 PM EDT

    kevin-pritchard-jazz-game_display_image

    Kevin Pritchard was the hottest general manager in the league, the guy who changed the culture in Portland from the “Jail Blazers” to a young team on the rise. Then he got fired. Abruptly. Reportedly because owner Paul Allen and his tight circle didn’t like Prichard and the credit he was getting for turning around…

  17. Blazers to keep Oden, extend one-year, $8.8 million offer

    Jun 29, 2011, 4:33 PM EDT

    greg_oden

    The Portland Trail Blazers are not willing to give up on Greg Oden quite yet. The team offered the oft-injured center a one-year, $8.8 million qualifying offer for next season, reports Marc Spears of Yahoo, on twitter. Oden can sign the offer (and well may), but just by offering it the Blazers reserve the right…

  18. Knicks may solve center problem with… Kwame Brown?

    Jun 27, 2011, 8:10 AM EDT

    Kwame Brown

    The Knicks need someone to protect the rim and play some defense as a big man. Ronny Turiaf tried but he is a great backup, not the answer. However they really want to preserve their cap space for potentially getting another superstar in 2012 — hello Dwight Howard or Chris Paul (new CBA willing) —…

  19. Video: TMZ mistakes Greg Oden for LeBron James

    Jun 21, 2011, 12:48 PM EDT

    ODEN_GREG

    Before we get started, it’s important to note that TMZ is the worst thing to happen to reporting … well, pretty much ever. Obnoxious, talentless dudes loitering outside clubs, restaurants, and airports screaming down athletes and celebrities with video camera in hand hoping they’ll say anything remotely interesting couldn’t be more annoying, and it should…

  20. Oden will get contract, but may not play until January

    Jun 16, 2011, 12:49 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Portland Trail Blazers

    It sounds more and more like the Portland Trail Blazers may offer an $8.8 million qualifying offer to Greg Oden so they can keep him. Yes, the Greg Oden who has flashed talent but played in only one quarter of the team’s games the past four seasons due to some serious knee issues. (Possibly, the…

  21. Blazers considering giving Oden qualifying offer

    Jun 13, 2011, 7:28 PM EDT

    ODEN_GREG

    According to The Oregonian’s Joe Freeman, the Blazers declined to offer center Greg Oden an $8.8 million qualifying offer today, which was the first day the Blazers had the opportunity to do so. The Blazers have until June 30th to extend Oden the offer — according to Freeman, indications are that the Blazers plan to…

    Sixers Happy Family Time

    Jimmy Kimmel has been a constant source of NBA-related entertainment this post-season, and the fun continued on his show last night. Kimmel invited LaMarcus Aldridge and Greg Oden of the Portland Trail Blazers and Evan Turner and Andre Iguodala on his show to play the “Team-Mating Game,” an NBA version of “The Newlywed Game” (or,…

  23. Blazers surprisingly release GM Rich Cho after one year

    May 23, 2011, 4:26 PM EDT

    Rich Cho

    In a move that came as a surprise around the NBA, general manager Rich Cho was released after one season, the team announced Monday. College scouting director Chad Buchanan will take over as the interim GM. “The fit between Rich and our team simply wasn’t right,” said Trail Blazers President Larry Miller said in a…

    Apr 11, 2011, 6:30 PM EDT

    ODEN_GREG

    Bad news for Blazer fans, courtesy of CBSSports.com’s Ben Golliver: During Friday night’s game between the Portland Trail Blazers and Los Angeles Lakers in Portland, Oden joined the Blazers Broadcasting telecast to provide an update on his rehabilitation from microfracture surgery on his left knee that he underwent in November. Oden said that, as of…

  25. Greg Oden admits he is a long way from returning

    Mar 15, 2011, 9:44 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Portland Trail Blazers

    Greg Oden is going to make another run at it. Say what you want about him, it’s not lack of effort in rehab that has kept him off the court. But in a video interview at Blazers.com (via Eye on Basketball) Oden admitted that he is a long way from being back on the court…
