Boston, Charlotte and Cleveland are among the top teams interested in former No. 1 pick, Greg Oden, who hasn’t played in the NBA in over two years. It is being reported that the 7 footer is leaning towards the team that is expected to offer him a guaranteed 2-year deal, the Cleveland Cavaliers.
According to Sam Amico, Fox Sports Ohio:
Sources said over the weekend Oden has been leaning toward the Cavs all along. If true, it would make good sense. They’re the only NBA team located in the state where he played his college ball, and he has a large and supportive following in Cleveland because of it.
Oden also likes the notion of playing on the same team as Kyrie Irving — and considers the Cavs’ reigning Rookie of the Year the type of dynamic young point guard that could help jumpstart Oden’s rebirth, sources said.
