    Nba Logo Greg Oden Waived

    Could be a good backup to Tyson Chandler when healthy. It's not like we need him but he could come in useful. Whaddayathink?

    Wow. What's the reasoning for this?

    I'd offer him a contract.

    He might be better off going to Phoenix with their medical staff, plus that would be big for them if he gets healthy.

    Apparently they had to waive him to make room for their new acquisitions... Not really sure.

    I guess he probably wouldn't take the vet minimum to play here this season and next though. Sure would be nice however.

    I think his career is over. I would be surprised if he have anything left to give.

    What does waiving a player mean for cap space for a team?

    It has the potential to keep them under the luxury tax, I believe that's it unless it's an amnesty waiver.

    Wiki quote: "On March 15, 2012, Oden was waived by the Blazers in an effort to create room on the roster for trade acquisitions. The next day, Oden stepped outside his house. Upon the sun hitting him, collapsed in a heap grabbing his knee, and soon disintegrated into ashes leaving behind a knee-less skeleton."

    Oden hasn't played hoops since December 5, 2009 which makes me think Portland had enough of paying dude his dough and not having even a glimmer of hope he'll be playing anytime soon.
