The New York native Greg oden is going to be looking for a shot on any NBA team this offseason and the 7 footer's contract is currently 6mil, his value has certainly dropped and i don't see why we can't offer him a 1 year contract.
Greg is a naturally gifted athlete. Couple that with his height, and throw in his remarkable strength, and you have as dominant a low post player as you can get.
He won't mess up the chemistry and In 24 minutes last year, he averaged 11.1 points. His per 36 minutes stat for scoring are over 16 a game. New York needs another inside scorer to help take the load off Stoudemire.
Oden can score off putbacks, alley-oops, post moves and, on some occasions, a close-range jump shot.
His athleticism and size put together would help him be dominant, and in a fast-paced offense, his per 36 minutes scoring is bound to rise, especially with continued development of his game.
Last year he swatted 2.3 shots on a nightly basis, and his per 36 minute stat for blocks was a staggering 3.5 blocks per game!
To make it clear, that is more than Dwight averages in 36 minutes. He definitely alters many more shots, helping lower opponent field goal percentages.
Unlike Dwight, however, Oden is also a good one-on-one defender. He is able to face-up guard big men, and occasionally, rotate over to guard the open man on the perimeter. His defensive instinct is remarkable, and it helps him a lot.
