Ever since he was drafted number one overall in front of Kevin Durant, Greg Oden has struggled to stay on the court. His various injury issues have haunted the Ohio State big man for his entire career, and many have even forgotten about him. There’s now talk of Oden trying to play again in the NBA, and reportedly, the Miami Heat are at the top of the list to make a run at him. Via ESPN: Nearly a year removed from his latest knee surgery, former No. 1 overall pick Greg Oden has decided to resume his playing career, but is not planning to return to the NBA before the 2013-14 season, according to sources close to the situation. Sources told ESPN.com that multiple teams already have expressed interest in signing Oden before the end of this season to a multiyear deal that would allow him to continue his rehab until he can get back on the court in training camp in the fall. The Miami Heat are at the front of the line in pursuing Oden, two sources said, and have been keeping tabs as he recovers while also taking classes at Ohio State. This could definitely be a good gamble for the Heat. They are severely deprived of size, and could use the interior defense. The last time he played, he was averaging 11 points, 8.5 rebounds, and over 2 blocks per game in only 24 minutes. The post Heat Interested In Greg Oden? appeared first on Pass The Pill.
