Back To Rip City

Reports from Oregon this week tell us all signs point to Portland Trailblazers oft-injured big man Greg Oden signing a 1-year deal to stay in Portland.


The report says the free agent center from Ohio State will sign a one-year qualifying offer. This is according to Oden’s agent Bill Duffy.

Oden was scheduled to be able to start getting offers on Friday, but has taken himself out of the “moving” equation by agreeing to this deal.

As we reported this week, When healthy Oden has been productive with career averages of 12.6 ppg and 8.6 rpg and he is definitely a force on the defensive end with Portland.

Oden, who turns 24 in January, will be paid $8.9 million this season.
