LAS VEGAS – Jrue Holday and Ryan Anderson have heard about the New Orleans Pelicans as one of the teams considering the signing of Greg Oden, and both endorse the possibility. “That would be awesome, a great addition to what we want to do,” Holiday told RealGM late Thursday. Oden hasn’t played since 2009, but players around USA Basketball this week had heard through people close to the center that he’s looked fluid in workouts. Oden, 25, was the No. 1 pick in the 2007 NBA draft. “A healthy Greg Oden is a great player, so I’d definitely be excited to play alongside him,” Anderson told RealGM. “Obviously, it seems we might need another big center.” After one standout season at Ohio State, Oden has averages of 9.4 points, 7.3 rebounds and 1.4 blocks over 82 games in the NBA.
